Indian Opener Rohit Sharma, who scored a heroic 117-ball 152 in a winning reason for India against the West Indies at the Barsapara Cricket Ground in Guwahati on Sunday, has attained a feat no other batsman ever has. In India’s eight-wicket victory against the Windies, Rohit┬ábecame the first batsman in the world to register six 150-plus scores in ODI cricket.

Rohit Sharma has 20 centuries to his name in the 189 ODI matches so far. And his six 150-plus scores are:
1. 209 versus Australia in Bangalore back in November 2013.
2. 264 versus Sri Lanka in Kolkata in November 2014.
3. 150 versus South Africa in Kanpur in October 2015.
4. 171* versus Australia in Perth in January 2016
5. 208* versus Sri Lanka in Mohali in December 2017
6. 152* versus the West Indies in Guwahati in October 2018

Sachin Tendulkar, who is second on the list, has recorded five 150-plus scores.

Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag took to Twitter to talk about this number.

In the first ODI against the Windies, Rohit┬álaced a 246 run partnership with captain Kohli and chases the 323-run target. Kohli scored his 36th ODI century, creeping closer to the 10,000-run mark in ODI cricket. Debutant Rishabh Pant got his ODI cap from MS Dhoni before the start of play. Pant didn’t get a chance to bat as the match was wrapped up by the top order.

The next ODI will be held in Vizag (India) on October 24. The ODI series will come to end on November 1.
