ICC World Cup 2019: Cricketing world reacts as Rohit Sharma smashes 85-ball century against Pakistan

Posted On / /

Indian opener Rohit Sharma continued his dream run in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 with a 113-ball 140 against arch-rivals Pakistan in their highly-anticipated clash at the Old Trafford in Manchester on Sunday.

Rohit has now become the second Indian after Virat Kohli to score a hundred against Pakistan in a World Cup match. Overall, this was Rohit’s 24th ODI century and third in the World Cups.

His hundred (85 balls) in Manchester is also the third fastest by an Indian against Pakistan in ODI cricket.

Virender Sehwag, with his 80-ball hundred at the National Stadium in Karachi in 2008, holds the record and he is also on the second spot (84-ball hundred in Kochi in 2005).
