Five centuries at one World Cup. Rohit Sharma is creating some very special landmarks. And for lovers of batting, providing a lot of joy— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) July 6, 2019
What was even more heartening than @ImRo45‘s record 5th century this World Cup was @imVkohli‘s tension as Rohit neared the three figure mark and his absolute delight when Rohit got there. Proud to support this team, whatever the result!— Joy Bhattacharjya (@joybhattacharj) July 6, 2019
Kudos to the brilliant #Hitman @ImRo45 for being the first batsman in history to make 5centuries in a #WC— Vivek Anand Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) July 6, 2019
After 16yrs can he break the record of the legendary @sachin_rt and cross the magic number of 673?#IndianCricketTeam #WC2019
5 hundreds in 8 innings! In a World Cup!! @ImRo45 has just raised the bar to a level people will find impossible to match in future. Stellar.— Boria Majumdar (@BoriaMajumdar) July 6, 2019

Rohit Sharma is going to get a toy for his daughter soon. Some call it Man of the Tournament. #CWC19— Silly Point (@FarziCricketer) July 6, 2019
“No player in the history of the sport has done it (made 5 centuries in one World Cup)”.— Aalia 🇮🇳 (@ambiverthijabi) 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.
TAKE. A. BOW.#INDvSL
