#IndvsAus : Rohit Sharma hits 171*, Twitter says he'll make the 'Perfect Ambassador for #OddEven'

Rohit Sharma, the king of inconsistency, has won over Twitter this time. At the ongoing India vs Australia ODI in Perth, the cricketer scored an unbeaten 171 off 163 balls. The 28-year-old Indian opener kickstarted the five-match series with a bang, silencing his critics - at least for the time being.

Shikhar Dhawan scored 9 off 22 balls, while Virat Kohli missed a ton by just 9 runs. MS Dhoni hit 18 off 13 run and Ravindra Jadeja was left to finish the game with Rohit, scoring 10 off 5 balls. India finished their batting at 309/3.

Hitting 13 boundaries and seven sixes, Rohit looked like he was having the time of his life. This is the highest score by a cricketer in Australia against the Aussies. Rohit, with his 171 not out score, beat Sir Vivian Richards' unbeaten 153 in 1979.

Twitter, of course, is celebrating Rohit's epic knock. Because who knows when they might see the man hit a century again.
