India’s opening batsman Rohit Sharma is going through an elite patch as the veteran cricketer recently smashed another ton in India’s last league fixture of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament against Sri Lanka. Scoring a top-class century of the ongoing mega-event, Rohit became the first man ever to register 5 centuries in a single edition of World Cup.
The 32-year old is currently leading the batting charts of the championship with 647 runs maintaining a staggering average of 92.42 runs. With two more games to go, Rohit is on course to break the record for most runs in a single edition of World Cup which is currently held by former Indian great Sachin Tendulkar who mustered 673 runs in 2003 World Cup.
After his heroic performance against Sri Lanka, the Maharashtra born shared the secrets of his success by stating that he always looks to take calculated risks. Rohit added that he learned from his mistakes which installed him in a good position. Extending the discussion, the prolific cricketer revealed that he takes every day as a new day thinking that he hasn’t done anything in the past. It would be interesting to see his approach in the knock-outs of the competition.
