Internet Desk: India has posted a mammoth of a total of 392 for the loss of 4 wickets in the second ODI thanks to a brilliant double-century from India skipper Rohit Sharma (208*) at Mohali’s PCA Stadium today. It was Rohit’s first international ODI double ton as captain which made the innings more memorable. With this double century he becomes the only cricketer who has three double centuries in ODIs, beside that it is the second highest individual score by any captain in the fifty overs format.

While Rohit holds the world record score of 264 versus Sri Lanka in Kolkata, he scored his first ever double ton -- 209 against Australia in Bengaluru, back in 2013.

In all, seven double hundred have been scored in ODIs and three belong to the stylish Mumbaikar.

The other four double hundreds have been hit by Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Martin Guptill and Chris Gayle.

After winning the toss, the Lankan skipper Thisara Perera sent the hosts to bat just like he did at Dharamsala. Though both the openers, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma started brilliantly at Mohali and shared a century stand for the first wicket. Dhawan got out on 68 after playing a brilliant knock.
