In a monumental World Cup clash against Afghanistan, Rohit Sharma etched his name in history by scoring his 7th World Cup century. The Indian skipper‘s achievement is a historic one as it propelled him past cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar, who previously held the record for the most World Cup centuries by an Indian.

A Consistent Performer in World Cups 

Rohit’s journey to this remarkable milestone began when he first graced the World Cup stage in the 2015 edition. He made an immediate impact by scoring 330 runs and notching up a century against Bangladesh in the quarterfinal. This marked the emergence of a new cricketing sensation who combined style with substance. 

However, it was during the 2019 World Cup that Rohit Sharma truly redefined the World Cup record books. He smashed five centuries in a single edition, a record that stands unparalleled to this day. Rohit concluded the tournament as the highest run-scorer with an astonishing 648 runs. In addition to his remarkable 7th World Cup century, Rohit shares the record for the most World Cup hundreds with the legendary Sachin Tendulkar, an honour he now shares with his cricketing idol. 

Rohit on a Record-Breaking Spree 

As the match against Afghanistan unfolded, Rohit Sharma’s performance was nothing short of spectacular. Chasing a target of 273 runs, Rohit adopted an aggressive approach, reaching his fifty in just 30 balls. His innings did not just secure his record-breaking 7th century but also marked his ascension to third place in the list of most ODI centuries for an Indian batter. Now, only Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli stand ahead of him in this illustrious ranking. 

Rohit Sharma’s record-breaking 7th World Cup century is not just a testament to his skill but also a display of his commitment to elevating Indian cricket on the world stage. As he stands among the giants of the game, his legacy as one of the finest batters ever is firmly established.
