India vs Bangladesh: Rohit Sharma Slams Fourth Century, Becomes Highest Run Getter of Tournament

Rohit Sharma went past David Warner's tally of 516 to become the highest run-scorer of the ongoing 2019 ICC World Cup as he scored his fourth century of the tournament.

Rohit crossed Warner when he pulled Rubel Hossain to the boundary in the 23rd over of the game against Bangladesh at Edgbaston on Tuesday (July 2). Rohit is playing his seventh innings while Warner has played eight.

Rohit was dropped on 9 by Tamim Iqbal off Mustafizur Rahman and made Bangladesh pay, getting to his century in just 90 balls. Rohit had already scored centuries against South Africa, Pakistan and England this World Cup.
