Rohit Sharma became only the 2nd batsman after Sri Lankan batting legend Kumar Sangakkara to score 4 hundreds in a single edition of the World Cup. Rohit now has 26 hundreds in one-day internationals.
Rohit, who had hit hundreds against South Africa, Pakistan and England so far in World Cup 2019, scored another against Bangladesh in Birmingham on Tuesday.
Rohit Sharma is now joint second in the list of most century scorers in World Cup history with Ricky Ponting and Kumar Sangakkara. All 3 men have scored 5 World Cup hundreds. Sachin Tendulkar leads the list with 6 hundreds.
Rohit Sharma is playing only his second World Cup. Incidentally, his first World Cup hundred had come against Bangladesh in the quarterfinals in 2015 in Melbourne.
Now after seeing his terrific performance in this world cup tournament, fans found this old tweet of the cricketer from 2011 only to reply to it in a positive way. The tweet came from Rohit Sharma’s official account which said that he feels really disappointed for not being part of the squad.
The tweet read as “Really really disappointed of not being the part of the WC squad..I need to move on frm here..but honestly it was a big setback..any views!”
