India’s dominant victory over Afghanistan, powered by Rohit Sharma’s century and Virat Kohli’s half-century, has ignited a surge of social media reactions to the win.
In the India vs. Afghanistan match on October 11 at Delhi, India clinched a resounding 8-wicket victory with 90 balls to spare. Rohit Sharma’s outstanding performance in the first 10 overs left Afghanistan’s bowling in shambles. He raced to a 30-ball half-century, achieving two significant milestones. Rohit equaled David Warner’s record as the fastest to 1000 World Cup runs in terms of innings and then surpassed Chris Gayle for the most sixes in international cricket. He then notched up the fastest century by an Indian in World Cup history, also surpassing Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the most tons in the tournament. Virat Kohli contributed 53, while Ishan Kishan scored 47 for India.
Afghanistan, earlier struggling at 63/4, recovered to post 272/8. Jasprit Bumrah was the star with figures of 4/39, his best in a World Cup match. Hardik Pandya took two crucial wickets, including one that ended a 121-run partnership between Afghanistan’s captain Hashamtullah Shahidi and Azmatullah Omarzai. Interestingly, Mohammed Siraj had a tough day, going wicketless and conceding 76 runs in nine overs.
