Indian cricket fans witnessed a remarkable feat as Captain Rohit Sharma outshone his compatriot Sachin Tendulkar by scoring his seventh World Cup century in a thrilling match against Afghanistan. The Men in Blue chased down a target of 273 with ease, securing an emphatic eight-wicket victory in New Delhi. Rohit’s sensational 131 runs, achieved in just 63 balls, not only set the crowd on fire but also broke Tendulkar’s record of six World Cup centuries.

Rohit Sharma’s Humble Triumph

In the post-match interview, Rohit Sharma expressed his delight at achieving this milestone but also displayed humility by stating, “Don’t want to think about records too much because I know there’s a long way to go.” He acknowledged his responsibility to provide the team with a strong start and emphasized his love for this role.

Fastest Century by an Indian in a World Cup

Rohit’s century also goes down in history as the fastest by an Indian in a World Cup, surpassing Kapil Dev’s 1983 record. With 16 fours and five sixes, Rohit reached 1,000 World Cup runs and even overtook Chris Gayle’s record for the most sixes across all international formats.

India’s Dominant Performance

India’s dominance in the match was further underlined by the 156-run opening partnership between Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan. Superstar Virat Kohli took the reins after Rohit’s departure and finished the game with an unbeaten 55, ensuring India’s victory.
