In the two semifinals - in 2015 and 2019 - Rohit has failed to live up to expectations.

Against Australia in 2015, Rohit got off to steady start. Chasing a massive 329-run target, Shikhar Dhawan played the aggressor while Rohit held the other end to add 72 runs for the first wicket.

However, with Dhawan and Virat Kohli falling in quick succession, the pressure got to Rohit. An in-seaming delivery from Mitchell Johnson passed through his gate and dislodged the bails. He scored 34 off 48 deliveries.

Four years later, Rohit was again put in charge to steer India in a run chase. Rain forced the semifinal against New Zealand to be moved to the Reserve Day with India needing 240 to win in 50 overs.

This time, the Indian top-order was jolted by Matt Henry and Trent Boult’s opening spells. Henry got the then vice-captain caught behind in the second over.

Rohit’s record has not been impressive at the Wankhede Stadium either. In four innings, he has managed 50 runs at an average of of 12.50. In his last appearance at the venue, against Sri Lanka in thhe ongoing World Cup, Rohit was castled on his second delivery by Madushanka.
