3 Rare feats achieved by Rohit Sharma with the masterclass against Sri Lanka
- Rohit has been in the form of his life in this World Cup and he achieved a few feats against the Lankans.
#2 Most hundreds at the World Cup
World Cup is the marquee event of cricket, with a rich sporting legacy behind it. It is a matter of great pride for players to represent their nation at this level, and etching their names in the record books is no short of a fairy tale. Greats like Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Lasith Malinga and Glenn McGrath have toiled for years to bring laurels to their countries and leave their mark on the event.
Come 2019, a low-profile, composed batsman, known for his immaculate timing makes his way into the tournament and starts plying his trade from the first game itself. That man is none other than Rohit Sharma. Rohit equalled Sachin's feat for the maximum hundreds at the World Cup, with his masterclass against Sri Lanka.
While Tendulkar had featured in six editions of the tournament, playing 44 innings, Sharma achieved the feat in just his second World Cup and 16th innings. With the knockout phase of the tournament still to be played and form on his side, the Indian vice-captain has a realistic chance of getting past the Master Blaster in this edition itself.
