The captain looked elated while talking about the same. Virat Kohli believes this is by far Rohit Sharma’s best ODI innings.

Rohit Passes Ganguly

South Africa Team bowled out for 227/9. India, while chasing down the target lost two quick wickets of Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan. Then the hitman Rohit Sharma took charge, played the role of an anchor, and scored a calculated 122 off 144. This was his second World Cup century. Earlier in 2015, he hit his first against Bangladesh.

Moreover, he went past Sourav Ganguly’s 22 ODI hundred. Sharma became the first Asian batsman to score a century in the World Cup 2019. He was rewarded with the Man of the Match award.

Skipper Virat Kohli Says

The skipper Virat Kohli was in praise while talking about Rohit’s masterclass. According to Virat, this was by far Rohit Sharma’s best ODI innings. He explained about it in the post-match press conference and mentioned that considering the tricky situation it wasn’t easy to score that ton. According to Kohli, Rohit was very composed and adopted himself with the condition. The team had full faith in him. The best part to him was that Sharma never let them feel that he could throw his wicket. The right-hander showed absolute maturity while delivering the innings. With Kagiso Rabada bowling with full control, it needed time to settle down first before playing own game. This is what Rohit exactly did.

No wonder, the captain Virat Kohli was full of praise and said, “I think in my opinion this is by far his best ODI innings because of the kind of pressure the first game brings from a World Cup point of view.” He added, “And then I know, as a batsman, when you go in, and a few balls bounce like that, it’s not easy to gather yourself again and play in a calm manner.”
