Sharma broke Sri Lanka legend Kumar Sangakkara's record of 4 tons which he had achieved in the 2015 edition of the World Cup.
Ironically, the hundred with which Sharma broke the record came against Sri Lanka. In that game, the 'Hitman' scored a 94 ball 103.
Rohit scored a total of 648 runs from 5 games with a highest score of 140 coming against India's arch-rivals Pakistan.
