A flamboyant start by the openers has put India in a commendable position on the match against Bangladesh today. Opting to bat first, Rohit and Rahul made sure to target each and every bowler in the opposition thus posting a partnership of 180 for the first wicket. This partnership is the highest one in this edition of the World Cup.

Rohit’s brilliance in the middle deserves a special mention as he brought up his fourth century of this tournament. A brisk 104 from him included 7 boundaries and 5 huge sixes. Rohit now tops the batting charts as he stands at 544 runs sending Finch and Warner behind. He started executing his plans right from the first over as he hit Mortaza for a six. With this century, Rohit has now amassed a century against Bangladesh in last three ICC outings ( 2015 World Cup Q/F, 2017 CT 2017)

Not just the batting charts, but Rohit added few records to his name after this knock. This 26th century means that he is now only. the second player to smash four centuries in the world tournament. Kumar Sangakkara scored four during the previous edition and Rohit has now levelled it.

Twitter couldn’t just stop congratulating him for his brilliance and this is how it reacted. Cricket experts and fans are so happy to see him stand and deliver on big occasions. It is to be noted that a win in this game will book a semi-final berth for the Indians and it will be interesting to see of this century turns out to be a match-winning one. 

The maximum runs scored by a player in a single edition remains as 673 by the master blaster Sachin Tendulkar in 2003. Can Rohit rewrite the record books??
