India, Oct. 20 -- India batsman Rohit Sharma scripted several records on Day 2 of the 3rd Test against South Africa in Ranchi as he went on to smash his maiden Test double hundred. The right-handed batsman went on to become the first Indian batsman to score a double hundred with a six, and also became only the fourth player after Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Chris Gayle to get a double hundred in both Tests and ODIs.

Rohit's brilliant innings came to an end for 212 after he slogged a delivery at deep backward square leg to Lungi Ngidi off Proteas seamer Kagiso Rabada. Surprisingly, at the start of the day's play, former Indian batsman-turned-commentator VVS Laxman had predicted the exact same score for Rohit.
