This week belongs to Sharmaji. First, Sharmaji ki beti broke the internet by marrying one of the most eligible bachelors and the captain of the Indian cricket team amidst splendid phoren locales. And now, Sharmaji ka beta, Rohit Sharma, has become the first player on the planet to slam THREE double tons in an ODI match!
The whole effing PLANET! Do you realise the cosmic implications of this feat? If NASA took a picture of India from space right now, they’d see Rohit Sharma scaling Mount Double Ton, because THIS MAN!

For those living under a rock, Rohit Sharma, the acting captain of Team India, just scored his 3rd double century in the second ODI against Sri Lanka in Mohali, overtaking stalwarts like Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Martin Guptill and Chris Gayle on the scoreboard!
To talk stats, he scored his 16th ODI hundred off 115 balls and then went on to score the second ton off a mere 36 balls! WHAT! In fact, in one of the overs, he hit Sri Lankan bowler Suranga Lakmal for four sixes!
With his indomitable 208 not out, Rohit Sharma become the first captain to score a double ton in the history of cricket. Thanks to him, India put up a 300 plus score on the board, which made us the first team to accomplish this feat!
Twitter EXPLODED. And I kid you not, it literally went berserk expressing their love for the Hitman in the only way they know how—memes and jokes!

What can be more awesome than you breaking your own record? That too when your phenomenal captain is away and you’re stepping into his shoes. That too when you’ve lost the previous match. And that too on your wedding anniversary! What a wonderful gift!
I didn’t think anything was going to shadow the Virushka wedding hoopla for quite some time.
But Ro-HIT Sharma, The Hitman, the first cricketer on this freaking planet to hit three double tons in ODI matches, you pretty much broke the internet!
