What a fantastic knock it was once again from the willow of Rohit Sharma? He showed his class yet again to bag the fifth century in the ongoing edition of the ICC World Cup. During the course, he became the second Indian to score more than 600 runs in the single edition of World Cup after Sachin Tendulkar. Meanwhile, Sanjay Bangar showers words of praise on the Indian vice-captain.
Rohit Sharma has been in sensational form in the 2019 World Cup. This was 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.
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.
It was a remarkable consistency from Rohit Sharma –
Speaking of glorious achievements, the batting coach Sanjay Bangar is very happy with the consistency of the Indian opening batsman. He showered a few words of praise on Rohit Sharma, who not only scoring runs but also helping out his partners during tough times.
“What is remarkable is the consistency (Sharma) has shown in this tournament because it’s very easy for any batter to rest on past laurels. But he has come out in each and every innings and started in the same fashion,” Sanjay Bangar said to the reporters.
He is helping out KL Rahul – Sanjay Bangar
Sanjay Bangar credited the success of Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul to Rohit Sharma as well. He believes that the consistency of Rohit Sharma at the other end will certainly help his partners to play freely.
“The way he has helped his partner at the other end, whether it was in the Australia game where he helped Shikhar (Dhawan) out of a difficult phase … now he is helping KL Rahul out in the middle and here he also flowered. So, that is all team work and I’m really glad that he is doing all this for the team on a consistent basis.”
All in all, it was a stunning knock from Rohit Sharma. It would be interesting to see how he approaches the semifinals and the finals of the tournament.
