Here are the best tweets as Rohit Sharma notched up his century against Pakistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup.
India opener Rohit Sharma notched up his 24th ODI century during his team's ICC Cricket World Cup league match against Pakistan in Old Trafford on Sunday. This was Rohit's second ton in this World Cup, as he put up a 136-run partnership with KL Rahul for the opening wicket. The right-hander reached the landmark in just 85 balls.
Sharma, who made 122 in India's opening win over South Africa and 57 against Australia, went to fifty in just 34 balls against Pakistan.
He got there in style with a six over long-on and a cut four, off successive deliveries from recalled leg-spinner Shadab Khan.
With fans all around the globe witnessing the much-talked about game, here is how Twitter reacted to his century:
