Twitter reactions on Rohit Sharma's fourth T20I century

Twitter reactions on Rohit Sharma’s fourth T20I century: Indian captain became the first batman to score four T20I centuries.

During the second T20I of the ongoing Windies’ tour of India at Lucknow, India captain Rohit Sharma became the first ever batsman to score four T20I centuries as he hit his fourth one in an unbeaten effort tonight.

It happened on the third delivery of the last over when Sharma hit a boundary off Carlos Brathwaite to achieve the feat. He completed his century in 58 balls.

Opening the batting with Shikhar Dhawan, Sharma faced Oshane Thomas’ express pace first up. Not being bogged down by the low run rate, Sharma used those overs to get in. He and Dhawan immediately up the ante as soon as Windies’ introduced spin into the bowling attack.

By the end of the powerplay, India had scored 49-0, with Sharma scoring 25* (21). At the halfway mark, India had reached 83-0 as Sharma (42*) was nearing his half-century. He completed his half-century on the first ball of the 13th over and took the onus on himself after India lost Dhawan.

He took a mere 20 balls to reach to his century from his half-century, putting on display another masterclass in limited-overs cricket. Sharma ended up scoring 111* (61) with the help of eight fours and seven sixes.

Earlier, Sharma had won the toss and chose to bat. Both teams made a change each to their playing eleven from the last match. While India had brought back Bhuvneshwar Kumar in place of Umesh Yadav, Windies included Nicolas Pooran for Rovman Powell.

The attacking knock saw Sharma alluring numerous praiseworthy reactions on social media platform Twitter. Read some of them below:
