There is no stopping Rohit Sharma as he became the first batsman to score five centuries in a single World Cup.

In India's last match against Bangladesh, Rohit had equalled Kumar Sangakkara's tally of four hundreds in a single edition of a World Cup.

 

Rohit relishes a clash against Sri Lanka, against whom he has scored two ODI double hundreds. Now, the century at Headingley against the Lankans has put him par with Sachin Tendulkar, for having scored six hundreds in World Cup history.

Tendulkar’s six hundreds have come from 44 innings (total 2278 runs) while Rohit took just 16 innings (total 977 runs) for his six centuries, spanning two World Cups.
