After the jolt received against England, Team India bounced back in style to become the second team to seal the semi-final spot in the ongoing world cup with a 28 runs vistory over Bangladesh on Tuesday.
Earlier in the game, India won the toss and chose to bat first at a pitch which continued to get slower as the day progressed. Indian opening pair of KL Rahul(77 off 92 balls) and Rohit Sharma(104 off 92 balls) gave a solid foundation by adding 180 run for first wicket partnership.
After the fourth hundred in the ongoing world cup, Rohit Sharma surpassed the record of Sourav Ganguly who previously held the record of three hundreds in 2003 world cup in South Africa.
The 32-year-old has scored a century against South Africa, Pakistan, England and now against Bangladesh. With this feat he also equals the record for most centuries in a World Cup with Sri Lankan veteran Kumar Sangakkara who scored four centuries in 2015 world cup in Australia.
Rohit Sharma is now joint second in the list of most century scorers in World Cup history with Ricky Ponting and Kumar Sangakkara. All the three batsman have five century each. Sachin Tendulkar leads the list with 6 centuries to his name.
With the innings of 104 runs off 92 balls, Rohit surpassed David Warner(516 runs) to become the highest run scorer in the ongoing world cup with 544 runs.
Yuvraj Singh predicts the man of the tournament
With world cup coming to its business end, former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh has predicted that Rohit Sharma will end up as man of the tournament for his sublime form with the bat. Yuvraj, who was the man of the tournament in 2011 world cup had earlier predicted that Rohit could be the man of the tournament last month.
