Rohit Sharma can easily surpass Sachin Tendulkar and AB de Villiers’ record against England!!


Skipper Rohit Sharma has brilliantly led the side to victory in the recently concluded T20I series against England.

The 35-year-old is also struggling for runs as Kohli. However, the camera is on Kohli for not scoring a century for over three years, but Rohit would also complete a year shortly without scoring a century.

But if he scores one, against England, he would then break a long-standing record held by Sachin Tendulkar, AB de Villiers, and Saeed Anwar.

Similar to De Villiers and Tendulkar, Rohit loves playing against England. He has scored five centuries against the Three Lions across all formats.

Rohit currently has 7 ODI centuries in England, tied with Sachin, AB, and Anwar for most away centuries in an away country. Hence, the Hitman stands a chance to break a record again at Ovals by scoring eight away ODI centuries in England, the most by any cricketer.

His list of seven centuries in England includes.

1.  123* against Bangladesh at Edgbaston, Birmingham in 2017

2.  137* against England at Trent Bridge, Nottingham in 2018

3.  122* against South Africa at Rose Bowl, Southampton in 2019

4.  140 against Pakistan at Old Trafford, Manchester in 2019

5.  102 against England at Edgbaston, Birmingham in 2019

6.  104 against Bangladesh at Edgbaston, Birmingham in 2019

7.  103 against Sri Lanka at Headingly, Leeds in 2019.

Notably, 5 out of his 7 centuries in England came in the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
