2014 was good year for a sports enthusiast. However, if you’ve missed some (or most) of the happenings of the past year, here’s a quick recap of 2014- in sports- for you.
Double Blasters Rule the Roost
The ‘Borivali Bomber’ Rohit Sharma’s volcanic knock (264 runs, 173 balls, 33 Fours, 9 Sixes) helped him set the world record for the highest ODI score, against Sri Lanka at Eden gardens. Interestingly, this was a second double ton for Rohit. That’s not all; all four double tons in ODIs have been made by Indian batsmen, and on home soil!
The Two Tonners
Rohit Sharma- 264 against Sri Lanka at Eden Gardens, 2014
Rohit Sharma- 209 against Australia at Bangalore, 2013
Virender Sehwag- 219 against West Indies at Indore, 2011
Sachin Tendulkar- 200 not out against South Africa at Gwalior, 2010
Kabaddi, kabaddi, kabaddi
