Well, kind of. It depends if you know where to look. Those three double-centuries have all been scored by Indians opening batsmen, batting first in India in the last four years. If you restrict your search to those parameters, then you'll find that actually, you only have to wait a fraction over five matches for your wish to be fulfilled; the flat Indian tracks conspiring to make what should be exceptional rather ordinary. Still, whatever the conditions, and whatever the standard of bowling, Rohit Sharma's innings was very, very special.
Rohit Sharma looked at home in international cricket. At last.
These kinds of strokes have always been present in Rohit's batting; the problem has been stringing enough of them together to make a meaningful score against the white ball. He scored two centuries in consecutive innings once, and seemed to finally have the hang of international cricket, before once again finding the middle of the bat elusive for a couple of years.
Although, looking at his stats, I have to wonder why in six hours he may be making his Test debut. Not that he doesn't deserve it - quite the opposite in fact - in 58 first-class matches, he has notched up nearly 5000 runs at 60.78, with 16 centuries, including an unbeaten triple-hundred. Compared to his List-A stats (excluding ODIs) of an average of 38.78, including three tons, I'm left with one pretty big question: why has it taken him until his 145th International appearance to make his debut in his preferred format? And that, of course, is only if he plays.
