Rohit Sharma has been in red-hot form all throughout the World Cup, mercilessly punishing bowlers with his exquisite strokes and effortless power hitting. Batting with tremendous levels of consistency, the gritty opener was once again in the thick of runs as he powered his way to his third century of the tournament.
Rohit’s splendid ton landed him a special record as he has become only the second Indian batsman to score three centuries in a World Cup. Before Rohit, it was former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly, who had achieved this feat.
Rohit’s scores of 123* against South Africa, 140 against Pakistan and now 102 against Pakistan indicate he is in exceptional form and India would be banking on his batting heroics upfront in order to put up a successful World Cup campaign.
