Virat Kohli heaped praise on Rohit Sharma who hit his 4th hundred of the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

Rohit was named man-of-the-match for his 104 as India beat Bangladesh to reach the semi-finals.

Rohit Sharma is now the leading run-scorer in the 2019 World Cup with 544 runs.

Only one other batsman – Kumar Sangakkara – has hit 4 hundred in a single edition of the World Cup. Rohit made Bangladesh pay with some sensational stroke play on a flat pitch.

“I have been watching it for years now, I have been saying it publicly, in my opinion Rohit is the best one-day player,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony. “When he plays, we are heading towards a big score and it really helps with the way he’s playing.”

Rohit Sharma on Tuesday scored a record 4th century of the ongoing World Cup 2019 against Bangladesh at Edgbaston. Putting on a scintillating 180-run partnership in just 29.2 overs with KL Rahul, who hit a 50 of his own, Rohit smashed the Bangladesh bowlers all over the park before falling to part-time Soumya Sarkar just after reaching his hundred. 

Rohit also hit 5 huge sixes to go along with 7 boundaries.

Rohit scored an unbeaten 122 in a tricky run chase against South Africa before hitting 140 against Pakistan. His 102 against England went in vain in Birmingham on Sunday but 2 days later, Rohit returned to the same venue to score a match-winning hundred.

Virat Kohli also doffed his hat to Bangladesh who came close in their chase of 315. Shakib Al Hasan set it up for his team before some lower-order hitting made India nervous in the closing stages of the game.

RoHIT MAN is the first Indian batsman to hit four centuries in the single edition of the World Cup.

Virat Kohli said Rohit Sharma is the best ODI player in the world after India reached the 2019 World Cup semis.
