India vs Australia, 2nd ODI: Who said what about Rohit Sharma's 2nd successive ton

New Delhi: Rohit Sharma on Friday registered his second successive ton in the ongoing ODI series against Australia.

The opener continued from where he left off at the WACA with a fine 124-run knock at Brisbane.

Rohit hit 11 fours and 3 sixes before being unluckily run out after having played 127 balls.

The 28-year-old has often polarised the cricketing fraternity by not converting starts into big runs.

While he has several admirers, there are other who feel the right-hander has failed to make rapid progress in his career.

However in 2016, Rohit appears to to be having no such problems.

With scores of 171* and 124, the Mumbai Indians' skipper showed why he is so highly rated.

As Rohit became only the second Indian to score back-to-back tons against Australia after VVS Laxman, here's what cricketers, past and present, had to say about his stunning show.
