Rohit Sharma stands tall on his “50s & 100s don’t matter to me” statement as he achieves a historic feat in ICC knockouts


India captain Rohit Sharma achieved a historic feat in the ICC knockout games. He became the first batter in the history of the game to hit 100 boundaries in the Qualifiers, Semi-finals and the final of the events organized by the ICC. 

Rohit achieved the feat in the semi-final 2 of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 against England. The high-octane clash between the teams, which was also a rematch of the 2022 World Cup semi-final, took place at the Providence Stadium in Guyana on Thursday (27th June). 

Rohit stepped up at the big stage for his team and made sure that he took his team to the winning total. After India lost Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant early, the captain took charge and batted with great responsibility.
