Rohit Sharma won the Golden Bat of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 after England's Joe Root and New Zealand's Kane Williamson failed to score the required runs to beat him to the trophy, as they faced off in the final at the Lord's Cricket Ground in London on Sunday.

Before the start of the men's cricket final, Rohit Sharma was the leading run-scorer at the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup. The Indian vice-captain has 648 runs from nine matches, while Root has 549 runs (10 matches) and Williamson has 548 runs (9 matches), in fourth and fifth places on the list of most runs of the tournament.

Second and third, David Warner (647 runs from ten matches) and Shakib Al Hasan (606 runs from 8 matches) respectively, in the race for the Golden bat have already been knocked out of the running.

Williamson scored 30 before Liam Plunkett had him caught behind to Jos Buttler. The New Zealand captain finished his World Cup with the bat, having scored 578 runs, which incidentally is also the most runs scored by a captain at a single World cup edition.

Root, on the other hand, managed a score of just 7 and that too from 30 balls, before he was dismissed by Colin de Grandhomme. He finishes the tournament with a total of 556 runs.

Root and Williamson needed to score 99 and 100 runs respectively to surpass Rohit Shamra and claim the Golden bat.

Also, Root and Williamson failed to surpass Sachin Tendulkar's record (673 runs) of most runs scored in any single edition of the World Cup, something that Rohit Sharma has already done.
