Former India captain Sourav Ganguly firmly believes that opening batsman Rohit Sharma is capable of scoring a double century in a Twenty20 match.
Rohit already has three double hundreds to his name in ODI cricket and has also made two centuries in Twenty20 Internationals.
The 30-year-old’s highest score in the shortest format is 118, but Ganguly reiterated that Rohit can become the first player to pass the 200-run mark in a Twenty20 game.
“Sachin scored first hundred in ODI and taking inspiration from him, Rohit has gone on to score three double centuries in ODIs,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by the Hindustan Times. “The day is not far when we will see him scoring the first double century in T20s too.”
