Rohit Sharma eyes big records

Leeds, July 6: Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have a wonderful chance to break some major milestones when India face Sri Lanka in their final league game of the ICC World Cup 2019 at Headingley on Saturday (July 6). The Indian vice-captain has been in roaring form in this tournament, prompting captain Kohli to rate him as the best ODI batsman.

He is tied with former Sri Lankan batsman Kumar Sangakkara, who made four hundreds in the 2015 World Cup. A hundred on Saturday against Lanka can take Rohit into his own zone.
