Rohit Sharma’s highest ODI score > sachin’s highest Test score. What is the punishment for such blasphemy?

Rohit Sharma’s incredible 264 does rather put the mockers on any one day opener who says ‘if I bat 50 overs I’ll get a hundred.’

If Madhur Bhandarkar makes a movie on Rohit Sharma’s life, it will be named as Batsman.

I’ve always admired Rohit Sharma’s occasional elegant 2. Or a sweet 6. And sometimes a well placed 4. BUT 264????? insane.
