Rohit Sharma Boundaries Highlights vs Sri Lanka 2nd T20 Match
Note:: Highlights are on official sites
Chameera to Rohit, out Caught by Dananjaya!! The carnage comes to an end. Rohit walks off to a standing ovation from a packed Indore crowd. The slower ball did him there. It was a shortish ball at 115kph outside off, Rohit picked the length and wanted to ramp it over short third man. He was a bit too early into the shot and ended up spooning to Dananjaya at short third man. Oh, my! Sri Lanka needed that. Didn’t they? The 165-run stand has been broken. Rohit c Dananjaya b Chameera 118(43) [4s-12 6s-10]
Chameera to Rohit, SIX, six #10 for Rohit! A gift from the bowler and Rohit doesn’t need second invitation. Full toss on the pads and Rohit, with a small back-lift, smites it over mid-wicket
Chameera to Rohit, FOUR, that went like a bullet! Fullish and outside off, Rohit flashes his bat at it and does hard. Races away through point
Chameera to Rohit, SIX, 150 up for India! This is becoming a bit boring. Too many sixes. Short of a length ball without any venom, Rohit won’t leave you. Pulls it off the front foot and sends it deep into the deep mid-wicket fence
Dananjaya to Rohit, 1 run, fetches this leg-break from well outside off and pulls it through mid-wicket.
Dananjaya to Rohit, no run, backs away does Rohit and he can’t get hold of this ball on the stumps. Chopped back to Dananjaya

Dananjaya to Rohit, no run, a rare dot ball! Turning away wide of off, chopped to backward point
Mathews to Rohit, FOUR, take a bow Rohit Sharma! He equals the fastest T20I century with David Miller. The crowd go up in unsion to applaud this wonderful knock from the skipper. Length ball outside off, Rohit laces it through the cover region. In the gap and the quick outfield does the rest. Second hundred in T20Is for Rohit
Perera to Rohit, SIX, 26 off the over! Rohit is in the mood here at Indore. Thisara Perera bowls another wide ball outside off and that’s been deposited into the cover fence. Stays in his crease does Rohit and allows his arms to do the rest. Got underneath it and walloped it all the way. Moves to 97!
Perera to Rohit, SIX, and another one! Moves to 91. This time over the off-side. Full and wide outside off allowing Rohit to free his arms. Lofts the slice and sends it into the point fence
Perera to Rohit, SIX, another massive hit! Fullish ball that ends up right in Rohit’s slot. HITMAN gets underneath it and thumps it over long-on
Perera to Rohit, wide, pressure! Sprays one wide outside off
Perera to Rohit, SIX, a mistimed shot for six! Back of the hand slower delivery, Rohit walks down the track and is ealry into his pull shot. Hits high on the bat and just manages to go past the fielder. The long-on fielder should have been near the rope. Sameera, the fielder, got a hand on it, but all he could do was parry it over the boundary rope
Perera to Rohit, no run, good ball! Perera sees the ball come down the track and hurls it full and outside off. Rohit can’t reach out for it. Just inside the tramline
Pradeep to Rohit, FOUR, spoils all the good work done in the first five balls with a poor ball. Sprays on the pads and it’s easy for Rohit with fine leg in the ring. Helps it on its way wide of that fielder there
Pradeep to Rohit, 1 run, wanted to send this out of Indore but couldn’t get under it well enough. The low full toss and Rohit shuffled across the sticks for the wild slog. Mistimed to deep mid-wicket
Pradeep to Rohit, 1 run, back of a length and closer to off stump, Rohit arches back a touch to steer it down to third man
Gunaratne to Rohit, FOUR, finds the gap once more! Look at the timing on this one. Fuller and outside off, Rohit reaches out to the pitch of it and drills the drive. Splits deep extra cover and long-off with such precision. He is on the rampage here, is Rohit Sharma
Gunaratne to Rohit, FOUR, runs continue to bleed. Idea was right from Gunaratne, tries the wide yorker but Rohit is in such good touch that reaches it. Steers with an open bat face to beat short third man comfortably. This is getting way too easy
Gunaratne to Rohit, SIX, ohhh, boyy! That’s hugeeeeeee! Into the third tier at deep mid-wicket. Another slower ball and Rohit knows what’s coming. Gets down on one knee and slog sweeps this into orbit. No mercy at all
Gunaratne to Rohit, SIX, they are competing on who’s going to hit the bigger sixes. Rohit this time as he lays into this slower ball that he picked up early. Slog sweeps it over deep mid-wicket for a maximum. Brings up his fifty!
de Silva to Rohit, 1 run, fired in around middle and leg, stays back and powers it to long-on
de Silva to Rohit, FOUR, sloppy at backward point! When it’s not going your way, things go haywire. Flatter and outside off, Rohit forced the cut towards backward point and this should have been stopped. However, the fielder is late to slide and lets it through. Chaturanga won’t be happy at all
de Silva to Rohit, FOUR, doesn’t matter who is coming onto bowl. These two are just caning them. Floated up around middle and off, Rohit makes room and lofts it inside out over extra cover. Excellent batting!
Perera to Rohit, 1 run, pitched up around middle and off, gets across and whips it down to long-on
Perera to Rohit, FOUR, super shot! Full and wide outside off, Rohit places the drive square through the off-side. The man in the deep is well in front of square and once he beat the infield, it was always a boundary
Perera to Rohit, 1 run, quite full and wide outside off, Rohit creams the drive through extra cover. A bit of work for sweeper cover but he gets around in a flash
Dananjaya to Rohit, 1 run, flighted up around middle, Rohit wrists it away down to long-on to rotate strike
Dananjaya to Rohit, SIX, didn’t seem like he middled it but who cares, it’s a biggie! Floated up around off, Rohit probably wanted to go over mid-on and didn’t connect as well as he would have liked. Still manages to clear long-off. The Indians are off to a flier here
Dananjaya to Rohit, FOUR, rubbish stuff! They are just not bowling to their fields. Fine leg is up and what does Dananjaya do? Float one up fuller outside leg, Rohit obliges with a sweep that beats the man at short fine leg
Dananjaya to Rohit, no run, very full and outside off, reaches out and drives it towards cover
Dananjaya to Rohit, FOUR, excellent batting! Rohit decides to take on Dananjaya straightaway. Uses his feet to take this on the full and although the line wasn’t too straight, he managed to whip it away with ease. Through mid-wicket
Pradeep to Rohit, 1 run, good change up from Pradeep, the slower ball and Rohit wanted to play the sweep. Skies it high towards third man but it was always going to land safe
Pradeep to Rohit, no run, the bottom hand goes off the blade as Rohit checks his drive, towards cover
Pradeep to Rohit, SIX, Rohit joins in the fun! Fractionally short from Pradeep and Rohit is on the front foot as he nonchalantly pulls this over mid-wicket. Clean connection and it clears the ropes with ease. Already, signs of a belter of a pitch
Mathews to Rohit, 1 run, shorter length and around off, Rohit stands tall and punches it to sweeper cover

Mathews to Rohit, no run, closer to the off stump on a good length, Rohit is cramped for room as he glides this to short third man

Mathews to Rohit, no run, slight hesitation but no harm done eventually for India. Rohit dabs this gently towards short third man and set off, never a run there and is rightfully sent back by Rahul
Mathews to Rohit, FOUR, aerial but it’s flown away! Too short and plenty of width, Rohit doesn’t bother to keep the cut down and the slice flies over backward point. Easy pickings!
Mathews to Rohit, no run, pitched up outside off, leans forward and dabs it towards the right of point. Rahul wanted the run but Rohit denies, good call!
Mathews to Rohit, no run, stump-to-stump line on a good length, Rohit taps it gently back towards Mathews
