HIGHLIGHTS
fter India opener, Rohit Sharma smashed
another century in the ongoing ICC Men’s
Cricket World Cup on Tuesday against
Bangladesh, his opening partner KL Rahul
said that the 32-year old is from a ‘different
planet’.
“He is just different class, he is from a different
planet all together when he gets going. He made
it look really easy today but the wicket was not
that easy. He is in good form but still to keep
putting up those performances is special, that is
what is excepted out of him and he is delivering
every time,” Rahul told reporters here on
Tuesday.
This was Sharma’s fourth century in the
tournament and with the help of his 104-run
inning, India managed to thrash Bangladesh by
28 runs and consequently, secured their semi-
finals spot.
Rahul is elated that India is getting closer to lift
the trophy and said: “We are two steps closer to
winning the trophy and it has been a dream of
everybody and we have worked for this for the
last four years. It will be great but we have to
take one game at a time and now we have this
winning momentum going on. We want this to
keep going and keep playing the best cricket as
we can.”
India will now face Sri Lanka before heading into
the semi-finals, which will start from July 11.
India fielding coach Ramakrishnan Sridhar is also
happy with the team’s performance and is
focusing on the upcoming games. “It feels great
and it is good that we have few days and we will
plan accordingly,” Sridhar said.
