India's Rohit Sharma created history by slamming highest number of sixes by any batsman in a One-Day International, against Australia in the seventh match at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.

 

Rohit slammed the third double century in ODI cricket's history, scoring 209 off 158 balls, hitting 12 boundaries and 16 sixes.

Rohit poweredIndia to a mammoth total of 383 for six in the final ODI of the seven-match series.

Australia replied with 326, and though they lost by a sizeable margin in the end, they did not lose the six-hitting contest.

 

James Faulkner's 57-ball 100 was his country's fastest ODI century.
