208 not out: Rohit Sharma hit an unprecedented third ODI double hundred when he scored 208 not out  against Sri Lanka in Mohali.

243: Virat Kohli played one of his best Test knocks on his home ground in Delhi scoring career-best 243 against Sri Lanka. The Test will also be remembered for the smog and fog in the national capital that halted the match a number of times as the visitors complained and even fielded wearing masks.
