Twitter reactions on Rohit Sharma’s dominating century: Twitter eulogized about India’s vice-captain for his fourth century of this World Cup.
During the 40th match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between Bangladesh and India at Edgbaston, India vice-captain Rohit Sharma scored his fourth century of the tournament in a dominating fashion to continue his golden run in the tournament.
Opening the batting with Lokesh Rahul, Sharma pulled a six off the front foot in the first over being bowled by Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza to clear his intentions from the word go. In the fifth over, Bangladesh opening batsman Tamim Iqbal dropped an easy catch to give Sharma a reprieve off fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman.
Since the drop, Sharma didn’t look back as he made sure the opposition duly pays for their mistake. At the end of the powerplay, India had scored 69/0 with Sharma playing the senior role with 39* (34). On the fourth delivery of the 15th over, Sharma ran a single off Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan to complete his half-century.
The build-up to Sharma’s 26th ODI century saw him primarily riding on his form. Some mediocre bowling by the opposition witnessed Sharma cruising in his innings. On the last delivery of the 39th over, Sharma cut a Shakib delivery for a single to complete his century.
In a bid to up the ante right after scoring his third consecutive century, Sharma mis-timed a Soumya Sarkar delivery to Liton Das at cover. The right-hand batsman ended up scoring 104 (92) with the help of seven fours and five sixes.
