Rohit Sharma of Mumbai has once again lived up to his 'Hitman' moniker in their Indian T20 League match against Kolkata.
While fellow opener Quinton de Kock fell early, Rohit calmly set about galvanising a fine 90-run partnership with Suryakumar Yadav, claiming his 37th fifty in the Indian T20 League.
Yadav, after accumulating 47 off 28, including six boundaries and a six, fell prey to a run-out by Kolkata's Sunil Narine. However, Rohit kept on trucking before eventually having to bow out with a 54-ball 80 for his efforts, including three fours and six maximums.
His achievement on the night led to a flurry of plaudits on social media, and we rounded up some of the best reactions:
