Hyderabad: Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma, who has three double centuries in his ODI career, named his 122-run knock against South Africa in the last year’s World Cup as his one of his favourites knocks.
The white-ball specialist, who is regarded as the best in the business, had scored 648 runs in the tournament to end up atop the batting charts.
“My favourite hundred in the World Cup was against South Africa in the first game that we played. Although it was a low total, the conditions were quite challenging and their bowling attack was really good,” said Rohit in a video that he tweeted as part of a question and answer session on Twitter with fans.
India restricted South Africa to 227/9 with Yuzvendra Chahal picking four wickets and star fast-bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah scalped two each. India however did not enjoy a free run to the relatively low total and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Rohit however stuck through and scored an unbeaten 122 off 144 balls.
