New Delhi: Team India vice-captain Rohit Sharma is in the brink of making the biggest World Cup record ever. He is just 27 runs shy from becoming the highest run-scorer in a single edition of the world event.
We can all just agree that the Hitman is in the form of his life. He has been breaking records for fun in 2019 ICC World Cup. 5 centuries – the most by any batsman in a single edition of World Cup – most runs (647), you name it and he has it all.
On Tuesday, in the India vs New Zealand first semi-final of ICC World Cup 2019, Rohit has a chance to once again rewrite the record books.
Rohit Sharma is on the verge of breaking two World Cup records. Incidentally, both of them belong to master blaster Sachin Tendulkar. Rohit has already clocked 647 runs to his name in just 8 innings in this World Cup. Now he is just 27 runs away from eclipsing Tendulkar to become the highest run-scorer in a single edition of a World Cup.
Additionally, if Rohit manages to score 53 more runs against the Kiwis in the first semis then he will also become the first cricketer to score 700 runs in a World Cup.
