Rohit Sharma might break two Sachin Tendulkar’s World Cup records
Indian opener Rohit Sharma is on the verge of breaking two massive Sachin Tendulkar records in the World Cup. He has already broken the ‘Most centuries in a World Cup’ record by hitting his 5th Century in the match against Sri Lanka in the last league match of both the teams.
Rohit Sharma is in form of his life in the ongoing World Cup
He has been in scintillating form this World cup as he has scored 647 runs in 8 innings. He is only 27 runs shy to break the record of master blaster Sachin Tendulkar of most runs in a World Cup Tournament. Sachin Tendulkar has scored 673 runs in 2003 World Cup in which India reached the finals in the leadership of Sourav Ganguly.
Two records will be on the line for Sharma in the next two games
The Indian opener has hit a total of 6 centuries in World Cup which is equal Sachin Tendulkar’s most number of centuries. 5 of them have come in this World Cup breaking the record of Sri Lankan Kumar Sangakkara who had hit four centuries in 2015 World Cup. If Rohit hits one more century he will break the record of great Sachin Tendulkar. If he hits another century he will join Sanath Jayasuriya in the most number of centuries in ODI cricket. The left-hander had hit 27 centuries for Sri Lanka in 445 games.
Indian team is well set to take on New Zealand in the 1st Semifinal at the Manchester ground on 9th July at 3 PM IST. India will be high on confidence as they have finished the league stage as the table topper whereas New Zealand has lost their last three matches.
