Rohit Proves His Self Ro”HIT” Man.
Birmingham: Rohit Sharma is dominating with the bat and scored 4 centuries in just 7 innings of the ongoing ICC World Cup. He scored 104 runs against Bangladesh to complete his fourth ton and helped India win the match by 38 runs.
Also known as hit man, the opener has most runs in the tournament so far. He has scored 544 runs at an average of 90.67. After being dropped for 9, he then took the game away from Bengal tigers. He is riding on his luck after being dropped thrice at low scores converting them into hundreds.
Rohit earned his third Man of the Match award on Tuesday. He went past former India player and captain Sourav Ganguly who hit 3 tons in 2003 World Cup. The 32-year-old has left out former India skipper MS Dhoni when it comes to hitting sixes. Rohit now has 230 sixes in ODI cricket, 2 more than Dhoni (228).
With four tons, he has equaled the record with former Sri Lanka batsman who had achieved the land mark in 2015 World Cup.
India have already qualified in the semi-finals. Men in blue will be happy to have Rohit in top-form going ahead into important matches in the tournament.
Since 2017, Rohit Sharma has scored 3423 runs in 60 matches that include 16 centuries. Only Virat Kohli has more, 3681 runs in 58 matches with 15 tons.
Interestingly, skipper Kohli is yet to hit a century in the ongoing World Cup. He manages 408 runs in 7 matches at an average of 58.29 that includes 5 consecutive half-centuries.
Rohit is also gaining limelight off the field for his spirit for the game. One of his six hit a fan named Meena. He called her after winning the game against Bangladesh and presented her a hat with his autograph on it.
Apart from ICC World Cup 2019, Rohit recently won the Indian Premier League (IPL) as skipper. He helped his side Mumbai Indians win their fourth title. He also become father to a daughter earlier this year and is having a great time in England.
Note: Sharma is also Vice-Captain of team India. Despite KL Rahul’s availability, He has ensured Shikhar Dhawan’s absence is not felt.
The middle order continues to be a cause of concern as Kedar Jadhav was left out of the squad. He was criticized along with MS Dhoni for not showing intent to win the match against England. Dinesh Karthik who made his World début after playing international cricket for 17 years, failed to impress with bat.
Youngster Rishabh Pant did well to score 32, 48 runs. He got set but threw away his wicket on both the occasions. Moreover he is yet to face a pressure situation.
Meanwhile, an old woman aged 87-year-old Indian cricket fan, Charulata Patel grabbed attention. Speaking to the media, she told that she is not born in India but supports them as her parents were from India.
