NewDelhi: Rohit Sharma has broken Sachin Tendulkar’s record for most centuries in the World Cup. Sharma scored a brilliant century off 63 balls in India’s match against Afghanistan on Wednesday, taking his tally to seven World Cup centuries. Tendulkar had scored six centuries in the World Cup.
Rohit Sharma The 63-ball century is the fastest century by an Indian in the World Cup. The previous fastest was Kapil Dev’s 72-ball century vs. Zimbabwe in the 1983 World Cup.
Sharma is now the only batsman to have scored seven centuries in the World Cup. He has also become the fastest batsman to reach the milestone, having done so in just 19 innings. Tendulkar had taken 45 innings to reach six centuries.
Sharma’s achievement is even more remarkable considering the fact that he has played in only three World Cups. Tendulkar, on the other hand, had played in six World Cups.
Sharma is one of the most prolific batsmen in the world at the moment. He is also the captain of the Indian team, who are currently one of the favorites to win the World Cup.
Indian captain Rohit Sharma became the joint-fastest batsman to reach 1,000 runs in the World Cup and the first player to hit 555 sixes in international cricket in the match against Afghanistan on Wednesday.
