Rohit Sharma 2nd Indian batsman to score 600 runs in a single World Cup
Rohit Sharma equaled Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the most centuries in World Cups by an Indian, scoring his fifth century of the 2019 edition in the match against Sri Lanka in Leeds.
Rohit now has six world Cup centuries in 15 innings. Tendulkar had six tons from 44 World Cup innings.
Rohit is the first batsman to score five centuries in a single World Cup. Kumar Sangakkara, the former Sri Lankan batsman, had made four centuries in 2015.
Rohit, the leading run-scorer of this tournament, had earlier scored centuries against South Africa, Pakistan, England and Bangladesh.
