It’s a special feeling to get a World Cup hundred.” Rohit remained humble about his records, adding, “Don’t want to think too much (scoring 7 hundreds in just three World Cups), I don’t want to lose my focus. You need to make such things count. You gotta make it big.”

Rohit emphasized the importance of the victory, saying, “It is about absorbing pressure and taking the right decision on the field. Leading up to the tournament, we had played such games. You have got players with different skill sets in our team. They bring different attributes of the game to the team and it puts you in good positions as a team when you have that.”
