Indian opener KL Rahul hits his first century in World Cup during India’s clash against Sri Lanka. Rahul took 109 balls to smash his first World Cup hundred. Earlier in the match, his opening partner Rohit Sharma scored his fifth century of this World Cup.

This is the third time in the World Cup that both the openers from the same match have scored a century each. U Tharanga (133) & T Dilshan (144) vs Zimbabwe Pallekele 2011, U Tharanga (102*) & T Dilshan (108*) vs England Colombo 2011, Rohit Sharma (103) & KL Rahul (111) vs Sri Lanka Leeds 2019.

 

India has already qualified for the semi-final and now they are playing to reach on top of the points table. India is looking good to win the match against Sri Lanka at the time of publishing this story.

If India is at number one on the points table then India will play New Zealand and if on the second spot then it will meet England in the semi-final. India has lost just one match in this tournament against England in Birmingham.
