CWC 2019: Twitter erupts as Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul slam centuries in India’s thumping win over Sri Lanka

In the 44th match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, India defeated Sri Lanka by 7 wickets as openers Rohit Sharma (103 off 94 balls) and KL Rahul (111 off 118 balls) hit brilliant centuries at the Headingley in Leeds.

Earlier, Angelo Mathews once again turned out to be a thorn in India’s flesh with a gutsy hundred after a top-order collapse, guiding Sri Lanka to a respectable 264 for 7 in 50 overs.


The former Sri Lanka captain (113 off 128 balls) played a near-perfect knock with his back to the wall, to give his team a chance to fight which looked bleak after the first hour. Jasprit Bumrah (3/37) was once again fast, accurate and mostly unplayable but his partner Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1/73) had a forgettable day.

Sri Lanka finished with only 3 wins from 9 games and will go back home disappointed. India will move on to the semi-finals which will be played on July 9 and July 11 respectively.

Here’s how Twitter reacted:
