While the internet exploded with congratulatory messages for Rohit Sharma on his historic innings of 264 runs, his rumoured ex-girlfriend Sofia Hayat had her own special way of wishing him. She dedicated her nude photo shoot to his record ODI score!

In a tweet posted along with her nude photograph, Sofia wrote, "Dedicating my nude shoot to Rohit Sharma for his historic score! Well done! This one is for you! Proud day for India!"
"Celebrating Rohit Sharmas record breaking score with my nude shoot! Rock on Sharma!" [sic], she said in a separate tweet.
Sofia, in 2012, took to Twitter to reveal that she had dated Rohit Sharma. Her tweet read, "Ok let's put the rumours to end..yes I dated rohit sharma, now it's over.. I wouldn't date him again.. this time I'm looking for a gentleman" [sic]
However, Rohit maintains that they weren't dating.
This unusual way of showing support is not new. Back in 2011, model Poonam Pandey took everyone by storm by promising to strip for India if the team won against Sri Lanka in the World Cup finals.
