Rohit shows up for big stage, scores 85-ball 100

rohit-sharma

MANCHESTER: On the big stage, against Pakistan, India's vice-captain Rohit Sharma raised a fluent 85-ball 100 to give the team a brisk start here on Sunday. He later got out to a weak shot of Wahab Riaz's bowling when he was caught by Hassan Ali. He had scored 140 runs from 113 deliveries by then.

The 32-year old was lucky to survive a run out chance in the 11th over when a hesitation between him and Rahul saw Rohit way out of his crease, but Shadab Khan did superbly well to pick up the ball one-hand but got the direction of the throw wrong.

Rohit has been in sublime form throughout the World Cup. He joined an elite list of cricketers, becoming only the fourth player to aggregate 2,000 runs in One-Day Internationals against Australia in India's last game after their tie against New Zealand was washed off.

Rohit, along with Sachin Tendulkar, Sir Viv Richards and Desmond Haynes complete the list.
