There is something with 300 in the ongoing series between India and Sri Lanka. Initially, Virat Kohli featured in his 300th international match then the former skipper of India, Mahendra Singh Dhoni did in his 300th ODI Jersey and now it is Lasith Malinga who reached 300 ODI wickets club after sending Virat Kohli back to the pavilion.
Rohit Sharma and Lasith Malinga shares a cordial relationship between them as they featured for the same franchise, Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League over the seasons. Lasith Malinga is waiting from many matches to pick up his 300th wicket and it has been a worth waiting as he scalped the best batsman in the modern world, Virat Kohli.
After completing his tally of 300 wickets, Rohit Sharma congratulates Lasith Malinga by giving him a hug and a pat on the shoulders. The moment was quite a sight to watch for the fans who love the game from the bottom of their hearts. The wicket of Virat Kohli (131) came as a sense of relief for Sri Lanka as he looked threatening to knock a double century.
Rohit Sharma continued his class show:
”Form is temporary but class is permanent,” Rohit Sharma once again proved the quote to be true as he knocked yet another century. He registered his 13th ODI ton and became the first batsman to knock back to back tons in Sri Lanka against Sri Lanka.
Earlier, after the conclusion of 1st ODI, people took Rohit Sharma to the cleaners on social media for his below par record in Sri Lanka but the vice-captain of India shut mouths with consecutive centuries.
