Dropping Rohit is always a mistake
If life gives you a second chance, grab it like Rohit Sharma.
Rohit equals Sanga’s records
The century against Bangladesh saw Rohit equal former legend Kumar Sangakkara’s record of the most centuries in a World Cup edition (4).
He also got to five career World Cup tons. He equalled Sanga and Ricky Ponting (5 each) with this tally.
Rohit now has five ODI centuries in 2019. That’s the most number of ODI tons by a batsman this year.
Not only centuries Sharma has surpassed sixes too
Hitman now has the most number of sixes among Indian batsmen in ODIs. He surpassed MS Dhoni.
Rohit became the seventh Indian to score 800-plus runs in World Cup. He overcame former Indian skipper Mohammad Azharuddin (826) and Virender Sehwag (843).
Rohit went past the 1,000-run mark in ODIs this year. He became only the third cricketer to slam 1,000-plus runs this year.
Twitterati is all praises about the Hitman.
