After scoring a ton in the match, Rohit became the only batsman to score five centuries in a single edition of the World Cup. Also, he scored his third consecutive ton in the tournament when the team was chasing a target of 265 runs, set by Sri Lanka.
Only ten players have achieved this feat of smashing back-to-back three consecutive centuries in ODI. The 32-year-old played a knock of 103 runs and is the highest run-getter in the tournament with 647 runs under his name. India will face New Zealand in the semi-final match at Old Trafford in Manchester on July 9.
