In a spectacular display of skill and determination, Team India, under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, has stormed into the finals of the ODI World Cup 2023. As the only unbeaten team in the tournament, the Indian cricket fans are fervently hoping that this unbeaten streak continues until the showdown.

The World Cup journey for India has been marked by stellar performances from various players, with standout contributions from the likes of Virat Kohli and Md Shami. Kohli, the talismanic batsman, has emerged as the highest run-scorer in the tournament, showcasing his class and consistency. On the bowling front, Md Shami has proven to be the highest wicket-taker, achieving this feat while playing fewer games than any other bowler in the competition.

However, amidst these star performances, the captain himself, Rohit Sharma, has been quietly orchestrating India’s success. Renowned for his batting prowess, Sharma, who smashed five centuries in the previous World Cup edition, declared before the tournament that personal milestones took a backseat to the ultimate goal of lifting the trophy for India. True to his word, he has steered the team with remarkable poise.

Rohit Sharma, currently the fifth-highest run-scorer in the tournament, has amassed 550 runs in the ten games played so far. His contributions include a century against Afghanistan, three half-centuries, and four scores above 40. Remarkably, Sharma has also set a world record by hitting 28 sixes in the tournament in a single year, showcasing his aggressive and impactful style of play.

Former Pakistani fast bowler Wasim Akram, one of the greats of the game, took note of Sharma’s contribution. After India’s semi-final clash against New Zealand, Akram praised Rohit Sharma’s captaincy and batting performance, highlighting how the skipper’s efforts might be overshadowed by other standout displays. Speaking in Hindi, Akram noted, “Rohit Sharma’s performance in this World Cup is going unnoticed because of brilliant performances by the likes of Virat Kohli and Md Shami or also Shreyas Iyer. Rohit Sharma, with his early blast along with Shubman Gill, provides a very good platform for the rest of the team to perform without stress.”
