Rohit’s remarkable innings of 105 not out off 64 balls was so impressive that even MS Dhoni could not resist acknowledging it at the end of the match.

The endearing moment was captured on camera and went viral on social media.

As soon as the game ended, Dhoni walked up to Rohit, hugged him and patted his back to lift his spirits. The picture of this poignant moment instantly went viral on social media.

“Two legends in one frame," wrote one social media user, while another wrote, “10 trophies in one frame." After the match, Rajasthan Royals shared a picture of Rohit Sharma wearing the national jersey. “World Cup year," read the caption, while apparently reminding people of Rohit’s fantastic form in T20 cricket ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Rohit Sharma’s undesirable IPL record

While Rohit Sharma scored his first IPL hundred since 2012, he also entered the list of cricketers with an undesirable record. Rohit became the third IPL batter to score a hundred in an unsuccessful run-chase, the other two being Yusuf Pathan (2008) and Sanju Samson (2021).
