What made it even more special for Rohit Sharma was that his record-breaking performance happened to coincide with his marriage anniversary.

Indian cricketers hardly get time to holiday or celebrate festivals or their birthdays with their family because of their jam-packed cricketing schedule.

"What was good about his knock was that his side was under pressure after losing the first game to us". Of late they have incorporated the trend of cutting the cake on the birthdays and on occasions like winning the series or after someone has a record-breaking day. Walking in at No. 3 with a solid foundation already having been set, Iyer settled in with skipper, Rohit Sharma, and looked in fine touch early on.

After the match, Sharma was interviewed by Team India head coach Ravi Shastri for bcci.tv and the opener revealed what different did he do this time around after missing out in Dharamsala. He was playing his 173rd ODI and brought up his 16th century. His first hundred took 115 balls while the second needed just 36 deliveries. Following which it was a carnage as the skipper pressed his feet on the gas.

The first player to score a double ton in limited-overs cricket was none other than the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. Rohit had two double-centuries to his name before this game and added one more to the count as he guided India to a mammoth 392 for 4 in 50 overs. Angelo Mathews with an unbeaten 108 did try to narrow down the margin of India's victory. His previous monumental efforts were 264 (against Sri Lanka in Kolkata, 2014) and 209 (against Australia in Bengaluru, 2013).

The BCCI posted the video on Twitter in which Dhoni and Pandya started with a jog and gradually turned that into a full-blooded sprint, which Dhoni won in nearly a photo-finish. Ajinkya Rahane and Chahal didn't let the captain get away clean as they give him a nice cake facial to top off a brilliant day.
