The Big Picture

Rohit Sharma helped himself to yet another hundred- 22nd in ODI cricket, but sans any support from the top-order barring MS Dhoni's patient 96-ball-51 could not take his side home as India lost the first ODI at the Sydney Cricket Ground to Australia by 34 runs.

India's run-chase got off to a horror start as they lost three of their four top-order wickets including Shikhar Dhawan for a golden duck and skipper Virat Kohli for three after he chipped a flick straight to square-leg. At 3-4, Rohit and Dhoni spearheaded the run-chase with a 137-run stand but Dhoni's wicket gave Australia the opening as Rhot, despite scoring his 22nd ODI ton ran out of partners and eventually fell to Marcus Stoinis to give the hosts a 34-run win at the SCG.

Here are all the numbers from Rohit Sharma's stupendous 133 at the Sydney Cricket Ground:-

14- Rohit Sharma during his 133 at Syndey became the 2nd ODI batsman to rack up 14 scores in excess of 125.

  • Sachin Tendular- 19
  • Rohit Sharma- 14
  • Virat Kohli- 13
  • Sanath Jayasuriya/Chris Gayle- 10

2- This was the second instant of Rohit Sharma's hundred in a run-chase that ended up in a losing cause. Out of the ten ODI hundreds that Sharma has scored in run-chases, India has lost only two games. Before today's loss, they had lost just one match which came against South Africa at Kanpur in 2015.

22- Rohit Sharma equaled Sourav Ganguly for the most number of ODI tons for India.

  • Virat Kohli- 38
  • Rohit Sharma/Sourav Ganguly- 22

5- Rohit's 133 at the SCG was his fifth ODI ton in Australia equalling with Kumar Sangakkara for the most number of hundreds Down Under. He also became the first Indian batsman to achieve the coveted feat.

64- In hitting six 6s today, Rohit Sharma increased his tally of the number of sixes against Australia to 64- the most against a single opposition. He broke Shahid Afridi's record of 63 maximums against Sri Lanka. While Afridi took 72 ODIs, Sharma has eclipsed the feat in just 29 ODIs.

7- Rohit Sharma is now only behind Sachin Tendulkar [9] for the most number of ODI hundreds in India vs Australia matches.

Most 100s in India vs Australia ODIs

  • Sachin Tendulkar- 9
  • Rohit Sharma- 7
