Today, Rohit Sharma made a record for the most number of centuries in a single World Cup, Lasith Malinga played his last World Cup game, Umpire Ian Gould made the final appearance of his career, Jasprit Bumrah took 3 amazing wickets and India won by 7 wickets.
It would be an understatement to say that the match was filled with emotions, and Twitter agrees with us on this.
They have the temperament, they have what it takes to power up & carry the day on their shoulders. Fiercely focused & consistent with the bat, @ImRo45 @klrahul11 are proving to be quite the opening pair. Fantastic innings the by two, all geared up for semis! #INDvSL #CWC19— Suresh Raina🇮🇳 (@ImRaina) July 6, 2019
"No player in the history of the sport has done it (made 5 centuries in one World Cup)".— V I P E R™ (@TheViper_OffI) July 6, 2019
An Indian batsman did that.💯
I've read/heard multiple critics say he's only a good player on home turf. And yet, Rohit Sharma just created history on foreign soil.

It has been a class display from Rohit Sharma this World Cup, to score 5 centuries in a single edition in just 8 innings is truly special. Feel delighted for KL Rahul as well, has been a pleasure to see him score a 100 today. Brilliant for Indian Cricket #IndvSL pic.twitter.com/6EYdgD4OHi— VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) July 6, 2019

Bumrah... Pls don't dive... You are more valuable than the extra 2/3 runs you might save by sliding / diving.. U will save more otherwise #ICCCWC2019— Kartik Murali (@kartikmurali) July 6, 2019
