Rohit struck a blistering 47 (29 balls) after choosing to bat, helping India reach the 70-run threshold in eight overs.
At the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday, India’s captain Rohit Sharma gave his team a great start in their Cricket World Cup semi-final matchup against New Zealand. Rohit struck a blistering 47 (29 balls) after choosing to bat, helping India reach the 70-run threshold in eight overs. Rohit set a massive record for the Cricket World Cup during his knock. The 36-year-old has now surpassed former West Indies skipper Chris Gayle (49) in the elite list to own the most sixes in the tournament’s history.
Rain caused the World Cup semi-final between the Black Caps and India to last two days in Manchester four years ago, but the Black Caps won.
“It was way back in 2019 that we played that semi-final, New Zealand have been one of the most consistent team over the years and it’s going to be a good contest,” Rohit during the toss.
