Sharma scored 131 runs off 84 balls for India in their successful 273-ball chase against Afghanistan. The final blow was Sharma’s record score, marking his seventh century in the Cricket World Cup – one more than Tendulkar. He also broke Chris Gayle’s record for most sixes in international cricket.

The Indian captain was adjudged Man of the Match for his achievements. Sharma’s feat also marked Tendulkar’s second record to be broken during the match. Virat Kohli became the all-time leading run-scorer in the ICC Cricket World Cup, surpassing Tendulkar’s tally of 2278 runs.

The Indian skipper’s feat can be said to be a little more special than Tendulkar’s as he scored his seven centuries in just three Cricket World Cups as compared to the legendary cricketer who previously set a record of six centuries in six tournaments.

Rohit Sharma Ascends to Legendary Status in Cricket’s Century Records

Sri Lankan legend Kumar Sangakkara and former Australia captain Ricky Ponting, with five centuries each, are the next highest scorers in the Cricket World Cup.

Sharma, on his way to 131 runs during India’s second innings against their neighbors, also passed Ponting in the tally of most centuries scored in one-day internationals (ODIs). He now has 31 ODI hundreds, one more than Ponting, who is Australia’s leading run-scorer in the 50 format with 13,589 runs.

Only Tendulkar and Kohli have more ODI centuries than Sharma – 49 and 47 respectively. While Sharma remained the center of attention at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Wednesday, Ishan Kishan’s dismissal in the 19th over drew cheers from the Indian fans, marking Kohli’s arrival on the field at his home ground in Delhi.

The star ex-batsman scored his second half-century of the CWC to remain unbeaten on 55 off 56 balls against Afghanistan as India wrapped up the game with 15 overs remaining. India’s next match in the Cricket World Cup will be against Pakistan and will be the most awaited match of the tournament. The rivals will go head to head on Saturday at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Kane Williams provide fitness update ahead of Cricket World Cup Battle

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson is excited at the prospect of making his first appearance at the Cricket World Cup 2023 following a remarkable cruciate ligament recovery. The captain attended New Zealand’s press conference ahead of their meeting with Bangladesh at the Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday, which itself is the best indication of his return.

The 161-ODI veteran pondered the path to match fitness but quickly looked to the future and took on the challenge of taking on Bangladesh, picking up where his teammates left off with two comprehensive wins to kickstart his campaign.

“It’s been quite a long journey, but overall a good one, with some really good progress and you know, I’ve said a few times: (I’m) very happy to have been included in the Cricket World Cup team, I’m sitting here now and very excited about the prospect tomorrow, which is another big test for us, Williamson began.”

“New venue, new confrontation, as we know that always happens at world events. We look forward to this challenge.”

Kane Williamson’s Remarkable Return: From Injury to Cricket World Cup Action

The appearance at the tournament will mark a comeback for the 33-year-old, who tore his anterior cruciate ligament in IPL action just six months ago. Williamson missed the first two matches of the tournament against England and the Netherlands, but featured in New Zealand’s Cricket World Cup warm-up matches against Pakistan and South Africa.

Williamson detailed a series of truly small steps that led to his miraculous recovery. Of course it started with the strength and range of the knee and then gradually trying to improve that and get a little bit more control. So, yeah, I mean every week for the last period of time since I, I think rehab has been really important and really valuable. So it’s been nice to get a little bit of that time over the last week or two and, like I said, I’m looking forward to being part of the team tomorrow.

In other team news, Williamson confirmed that Tim Southee remains unavailable for selection due to a hand injury sustained during the tour of England last month. The 34-year-old fast bowler broke his thumb while bowling in the opening series and will not feature despite making good progress in the eyes of his captain.

Victory over Bangladesh on Friday will take New Zealand to the top of the Cricket World Cup 2023 table after their comfortable wins over England and the Netherlands. For more about Cricket World Cup Final Tickets fully discounted prices on our website.

Bumrah’s Tribute to Rashford at Cricket World Cup

One of India’s most famous sports stars, Jasprit Bumrah, appeared to pay tribute to Marcus Rashford during the 2023 Cricket World Cup match. Bumrah and his compatriots take on Afghanistan in Delhi today (Wednesday, October 11) and the fast bowler took his country’s first wicket of the match.

In the seventh over of the group stage, the 29-year-old caught behind K.L. Rahul to 22 points from Ibrahim Zadran. After the catch, Bumrah put his finger to his temple, Rashford-style, with a cheeky nod to show his passion for United.

Bumrah has expressed his enthusiasm for the Reds before and even visited Old Trafford back in October 2021. After his team Mumbai Indians knocked out of the IPL (Indian Premier League), he took the opportunity to tour the historic iconic stadium.

Bumrah presented with a personalized number 93 shirt – the number he wears while representing India – and gave an interview to club media in which he expressed his delight at visiting the Theater of Dreams.

A Dream Come True: Bumrah’s Journey to Old Trafford

Asked how the reality of Old Trafford lived up to his childhood expectations, he replied: It’s unreal. As a child, when I watched the Premier League on TV, I always saw this stadium. But seeing it up front and up close is awesome.

“It’s great to see all these shirts in this dressing room and now I have my own shirt and I’m sitting next to Anthony Martial and it’s great! It’s a surreal feeling and I wish I could just stay here and watch and experience and learn as much as I can about it [the club].”

Cricket World Cup hosts India began their campaign on Sunday with an impressive six-wicket win over five-time winners Australia. Bumrah took two wickets for 35 runs, putting his country on course for what Indian fans hope will be a third CWC triumph. The competition will conclude on Sunday, November 19, when the two finalists meet in Ahmedabad. India and defending champions England are among the top favourites.
