The Hitman, Rohit Sharma, scored his second T20I century off just 35 balls. And, in his trademark style, he broke many data for the duration of his innings. the biggest of them become equalling David Miller’s record of scoring the quickest T20I hundred, off just 35 balls, who completed the feat towards Bangladesh at Potchefstroom in October 2017.
Rohit Sharma started out his innings a bit slowly but shifted gears in the 9th over bowled by Asela Gunaratne in which he hit two sixes followed by fours off consecutive deliveries and reached his half-century in 25 balls.
Rohit Sharma equals the fastest century in T20 in the 2nd match vs Sri Lanka when he reached the mark in just 35 balls.

Rohit Sharma scored 118 runs off just 43 balls that includes 10 sixes and 12 fours. He knocked 108 runs only through boundaries which explains the onslaught created by Rohit Sharma at Indore and sadly, Sri Lankan bowlers are the victims of his willow again.
The joint fastest T20I century!
