Rohit Sharma now shares the record for the fastest T20I hundred with South African middle-order batsman David Miller.

In reply to India's 21 sixes, Sri Lanka managed to hit 10 sixes in the inning. Lokesh Rahul also played a fantastic knock of 89 runs off only 43 balls hitting 5 fours and 8 sixes. The batsmen continue to struggle against a strong Indian bowling attack, especially the wrist spinners.

The 30-year-old clubbed 10 huge sixes and 12 boundaries in his 43-ball 118 as his innings blew the islanders away before they even had a chance to bat.
