India vs Afghanistan, World Cup 2023 Highlights: Rohit Sharma broke Sachin Tendulkar's record

India vs Afghanistan, World Cup 2023 Highlights: Rohit Sharma oozed class and elegance en route to a recording-breaking hundred, leading India to an emphatic eight-wicket win over Afghanistan in the ODI World Cup here on Wednesday. Hasmatullah Shahidi's dogged 80 and the young Azmatullah Omarazai's gutsy 62 took Afghanistan to 272 for eight after opting to bat. Jasprit Bumrah took four wickets and finished with his best ever figures in a World Cup match. All of it, though, was overshadowed by the show that Rohit put up, particularly in the first 10 overs. He eventually reached his century in 63 balls, thus making it the fastest ton by an Indian in the World Cup. On a batting beauty, India skipper Rohit (131 off 84) was unstoppable and flaunted his envious range of strokes. His record seventh World Cup hundred off 63 balls helped India gun down the target in 35 overs, giving a big boost to their net run-rate ahead of their third World Cup fixture against arch-rivals Pakistan on October 14....Read More

India vs Afghanistan Live Score, World Cup 2023: India thrash Afghanistan by 8 wickets

India vs Afghanistan Live Score, World Cup 2023: Virat Kohli wins it with a four straight down the ground. He ends unbeaten on 55 off 56, Shreyas unbeaten on 25 off 23. Their partnership is worth 68 off 56. India have beaten Afghanistan with a whopping 90 balls to spare. This match was all about Rohit Sharma. Multiple records have tumbled today, and most of the Indian ones have gone to their captain. India sit pretty second on the table and their net run rate is already looking strong at +1.500. All nicely set up for their next match, which of course no one will be talking about in the coming days, just like how no one spoke about it all these days either. The BCCI won't be hosting any special light or music shows in Ahmedabad for that match alone. Why would there be so much anticipation, it is only an India vs Pakistan match after all. It will also be only the first time that either India or Pakistan host a match between these two sides since January 2013. It can't be that big of an occassion, right? Right.
