Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, on 81, went about the chase in clinical style, moving India onto 152/0 after 25 overs. The in-form Rohit Sharma, who has scored four centuries in this World Cup including two in his last two games, reached his fifty with a six off Dhananjaya de Silva.
Rohit Sharma, popular known as ‘hitman’, kept up the attack on Sri Lanka’s bowlers as he topped the tournament’s batting charts after going past 600 runs.
He is only the fourth international batsman after Sachin Tendulkar (India – 2003), Mathew Hayden (Australia – 2007) and Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh – 2019) to score over 600 runs in a single edition of the World Cup.
