Watch: When Rohit Sharma scored 140 runs in IND vs PAK clash in 2019 ICC World Cup

Three years ago on this day (June 16), one of the best batsmen in the world, Rohit Sharma, played an extraordinary match-winning innings of 140 runs against Pakistan in the biggest tournament of cricket. It was during the 2019 ICC World Cup when Rohit smashed Pakistan’s bowling attack for 140 runs in just 113 balls, helping the Men in Blue post a mammoth total of 337 runs in 50 overs.

“He’s done it on the big stage once again!’ On this day in 2019, Rohit Sharma scored a match-winning 140 against Pakistan in the @cricketworldcup,” the International Cricket Council (ICC) tweeted.

Apart from this, the batsman also scored four more centuries in the same tournament and became the first batsman to score five centuries in one edition of the World Cup. Rohit not only broke former Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara’s record for most centuries in an ODI World Cup, but also equaled Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar’s record for most centuries in World Cup history.

With 648 runs under his belt, Rohit was the highest run-scorer in the 2019 World Cup with an average of 81.00 in just nine matches. He scored centuries against South Africa, Pakistan, England, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

Apart from Rohit, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul scored 77 and 57 runs respectively for the clash against Pakistan. In return, Pakistan could manage only 212 runs in 40 overs and lost by 89 runs following the DLS method. Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav and Vijay Shankar took two wickets each in India’s bowlers.

Now in 2022, Rohit is set to lead the Indian team for the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia later this year. Obviously, Rohit has a big task on his shoulders to take the team forward. His current IPL form has left many fans worried, with a few months ahead of the major tournament, it will be interesting to see how the Indian captain reacts to the situation.
