List of records Rohit Sharma created with his magnificent 35-ball hundred

The hosts showed the prowess in the opening match at Cuttack by registering a record 93-run win.

India's Rohit Sharma scored the joint fastest Twenty20 global century, reaching the landmark from 35 balls in an 88-run victory over Sri Lanka.

Stand-in captain Rohit and KL Rahul (89 from 49) put on 165 for the first wicket - a record for their country - and India went on to post the joint-second biggest T20 global total of 260-5 on a great track.

Sri Lanka captain Thisara Perera won yet another toss, and elected to bowl in the second T20I against India in Indore.

Joe Bryan gave City a 51st-minute lead but Zlatan Ibrahimovic equalised shortly afterwards. Ibrahimovic leveled courtesy of Pogba throwing himself at Korey Smith to win a free-kick.

1- Rohit Sharma's 10 sixes in this innings is the most by a captain in a T20I match.

The Lankans ultimately ended up at 172-9, a far cry from India's total which they were looking good to chase down at one point.

With India set to tour South Africa next, Rahul's fine form will be a welcome boost to the team.

The spotlight will also be on Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yaday, the two wrist spinners who have changed India's approach in ODIs and T20Is.

Apple admits to slowing older iPhones intentionally
Some Reddit users report that replacing their batteries has returned performance and CPU clock speeds back to normal. Apple says the batteries are created to retain up to 80 percent of its original capacity at 500 complete charges.

Wrist spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav shared seven wickets each as India achieved their 16th series win - across all three formats - at home since November 2015.

They lost quick wickets at the end but eclipsed India's previous highest T20 total of 244-4 past year against the West Indies in Florida. Rohit also became the fifth batsman in T20I history to register 2 hundreds.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will look to push the series until Sunday for a decider in Mumbai. A total of 108 runs came only in boundaries and it summed up his class.

After that, it seemed like the Sri Lankan batsmen were in a hurry.
