ICC World Cup 2019: Rohit Sharma On Verge Of Breaking A Massive World Cup Record
Rohit Sharma has been in sensational form in the 2019 World Cup. He scored his 5th hundred in only 8 innings. Rohit has now 3 successive hundreds in this World Cup. He had scored 102 against England on June 30 and 104 against Bangladesh on July 2. Now, he is nearing to yet another massive record, which is currently in the basket of Sachin Tendulkar.
In the process, Rohit not only became the second batsman in the ongoing showpiece event to have 600, or more, runs but only the fourth cricketer overall to the significant landmark. Nonetheless, he joined Sachin Tendulkar in the unique list and became only the second Indian to the feat.
Rohit Sharma got a competitor in the form of David Warner:
Rohit can become the most successful batsman ever to feature in World Cup stage in India’s semi-final clash against Kane Willaimson-led side. The Hitman only needs 27 runs to etch his name in the history books. The 32-year-old is only 27 runs short of breaking Sachin Tendulkar’s 16-year-old record in World Cup.
The Master Blaster was at his level best in the 2003 World Cup. It was hosted by South Africa, a tournament where he smashed 673 runs to become the highest run-scorer in a single World Cup campaign.
Former Australian opener Matthew Hayden came close to breaking Tendulkar’s record in the 2007 edition. He registered a total tally of 659 runs. Rohit is the current third rank holder in the list of players who have scored the most number of runs in a single World Cup edition.
The only competitor for Rohit Sharma in the ongoing World Cup, who can better him is the Australian opening batsman David Warner. He scored 638 runs for his side. The duo will be opening for their respective teams in the semifinal of the tournament.
Rohit has 647 runs to his name which makes him the top the current run-scoring charts of the showpiece event. His exceptional tally has already made him the highest individual grosser with the bat in the group stage of the World Cup.
Well, it would be interesting to see how he approaches the semifinals and the finals of the tournament. The skipper Virat Kohli, in his press conference, hoping a couple of centuries from Rohit Sharma’s willow.
