It’s a moment to be proud of as the fabulous Indian opener Rohit Sharma registered a new record in his name. Rohit’s consistent performance in the World Cup has been remarkable and yet again we got to see a spectacular innings where he scored 104 off 92 balls marking his fourth century of the season. Although, he was caught out by Liton Das on Soumya Sarkar’s ball shortly after scoring his century against Bangladesh on Tuesday.
With the brilliant innings, Rohit became the first Indian batsman to hit four centuries in a single edition of World Cup. He has equaled Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara’s record of hitting four centuries in a World Cup. Sangakkara had achieved his mark in the last edition of World Cup in 2015.
Rohit Sharma has showcased remarkable batting skills in the on-going mega tournament where he has single handedly taking on the opponent’s bowlers. He marked his four centuries against South Africa (122 off 144 balls), Pakistan (140 off 113 balls), England (102 off 109 balls) and Bangladesh (104 off 92 balls).
During Rohit Sharma’s innings against Bangladesh on Tuesday, he also achieved the 500-run mark in the prestigious tournament and became the second Indian batsman to have crossed the 500 mark in a single edition of World Cup after the master blaster Sachin Tendulkar in 1996 and 2003.
