Rohit Sharma scored his second century in three innings in this World Cup to lead India towards a colossal win over Pakistan by 89 runs on DLS method. The right-hand opening batsman took the attack to the Pakistan bowlers from the get-go as he raced his way to a 34-ball half-century.
Later, he settled down and focused on building the foundation for a huge total. He eventually reached the 24th century of his ODI career in 85 balls off a single from Shadab Khan’s bowling before stepping on the gas and further punishing the Pakistan bowling.
He finally got dismissed for 140 off just 113 deliveries, placing India in a dominant position. It was his batting heroics which helped his team amass a gigantic total of 336/5. Rohit’s, India’s vice-captain, splendid run-scoring spree has slotted him in the second place of the batting charts in this tournament.
