Rohit Sharma, the Indian captain, pulled off an awe-inspiring 87-run knock against England on Sunday (Oct 29) in Lucknow, and played a pivotal role in India’s dominant hundred-run victory. Rohit’s spectacular performance earned him the ‘Man of the Match’ title.
Rohit Sharma’s accomplishment here marks him as the ‘oldest captain’ to clinch the Man of the Match award in ODI World Cup history. At 35 years of age, Rohit is currently showcasing sublime form in the ongoing tournament.
Not only is Rohit Sharma performing brilliantly with the bat, but his captaincy has also been nothing short of sensational. Under his leadership, the Men in Blue have won all six matches played in the 2023 World Cup, making them the only undefeated team in the tournament.
Team India currently enjoys the top position on the points table and is gearing up to take on Sri Lanka in their upcoming match on November 2 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
