Emerging New Zealand batting prodigy, Rachin Ravindra, smashes his third century in the ongoing 2023 ODI World Cup, eclipsing Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the most World Cup centuries before the age of 24.
Rachin Ravindra achieved this milestone in a World Cup match against Pakistan, held on Saturday, November 4 at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. He scored 108 runs from 98 balls with the help of 15 boundaries and a six.
The New Zealand all-rounder had previously scored centuries against both Australia and England. This latest century marks his third in the current flagship tournament, bringing his total World Cup centuries to three, all at the tender age of 23, surpassing Sachin Tendulkar’s record of two World Cup centuries before the age of 24.
Most World Cup Centuries Before Turning 24:
Rachin Ravindra – 3*
Sachin Tendulkar – 2
Interestingly, Rachin Ravindra owes his name to his parents, ardent fans of Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar. They combined the names of these cricket legends to create ‘Rachin,’ and that’s how Rachin Ravindra got his name. Additionally, Sachin Tendulkar is his cricket idol.
