Rohit reached the mark with a slog sweep boundary off Adil Rashid in the 21st over. Together with KL Rahul, Rohit was forced to stabilise India’s innings after the side was 40/3 after 12 overs.

He reached his 54th ODI half century in 66 deliveries with a pull shot against Mark Wood.

But Rashid had the last after he foxed Rohit with googly and had him caught at deep mid wicket. Rohit fell on 87, just 13 short of a record-extending eighth World Cup ton.

Out of his 18000 runs, 3677 were scored in Tests, 3853 were scored in T20Is while 10470 came in One-Day Internationals. Rohit has 45 hundreds and 98 fifties in international cricket.

The skipper was handed a repreive by DRS on 33. An inswinger from Chris Woakes struck him on the front pad and the umpire raised his finger. Upon review, however, the decision was changed with the ball tracker showing the delivery to be going down the leg stump.

Rohit also became just the third batter after Shubman Gill and Pathum Nissanka to cross 1000 runs in ODIs in 2023. This was the fifth time Rohit crossed the four-figure mark in a calendar year.
