In the Asia Cup, Rohit Sharma beat out Sachin Tendulkar and established a new record

In the Asia Cup Super Four match between India and Sri Lanka, which took place on Tuesday in Dubai, India’s captain Rohit Sharma led from the front with an exhilarating 41-ball 72. However, India eventually stumbled and settled for 173 for eight against Sri Lanka.

After India lost two wickets early on, Rohit took the game by storm with an entertaining performance that included five fours, four sixes, and a total of four sixes. During their partnership of 97 runs for the third wicket, Suryakumar Yadav, who scored 34 runs off 29 balls, provided him with excellent support.

In the match between India and Sri Lanka for the Asia Cup 2022, Rohit Sharma made 72 runs off just 41 deliveries.

During the course of that innings, Rohit surpassed Sachin Tendulkar’s total runs scored in the Asia Cup, which was 971 runs over the course of 23 matches. In the one-day international format of the competition, Tendulkar was the one who scored the runs. After 31 games, Rohit Sharma has now accumulated 1016 runs. The only two players who have scored more runs than him are Sanath Jayasuriya (1220 in 25 matches) and Kumar Sangakkara (1075 in 24 matches).

After India had reached 110 for three in the 13th over when Rohit was dismissed, the team’s performance began to deteriorate and they scored only 63 runs over the next three overs.

The defending world champions, India, were in early difficulty at 13 for two in the third over as Sri Lanka got off to a fantastic start by removing opener KL Rahul (6) and one-down Virat Kohli (0) in rapid succession. This put India in a position where they were in danger of losing the match.

However, Rohit had a good attitude and kept the scoreboard moving at a healthy clip. He made it plain that this was his objective when he shot Chamika Karunaratne over wide mid-on for a boundary.

Asitha Fernando, a fast-medium bowler, was brought into the attack, and Rohit proceeded to smash him for a six and a four off of consecutive balls so that 14 runs could be scored in the fifth over.

Following that, the Indian skipper smashed Theekshana for a four over square leg, which contributed to India’s tally of 44 runs in the first six overs of the powerplay. After that, leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga and Karunaratne bowled a couple of tight overs, and they were successful in keeping the pair of Rohit and Suryakumar Yadav under control.

While this was going on, Hasaranga’s bowling caused Rohit to be caught batting at extra cover when he was on 40. After being given a respite, Rohit made the most of the opportunity by hitting Asitha Fernando over deep square-leg for a six. He then went on to complete his half century by hitting a four.

Suryakumar, not to be outdone, joined in the fun as well, landing a maximum blow on Madushanka. It was then again Rohit’s chance to get a six as the Indian captain danced down the wicket to loft Hasaranga over long-on. This time it was Rohit’s second six of the innings. After that, he scored a four, and then he scored another six after that.

Only on can you hear the most recent music releases.
On the other hand, Karunaratne got rid of Rohit in the following over by bowling a slower ball.

However, Sri Lanka was able to chase down the mark with one delivery and four wickets to spare, which meant that India’s score did not prove to be sufficient.
