India vs Afghanistan, World Cup 2023 Highlights: Rohit Sharma blazed 131 in just 84 balls as India beat Afghanistan by 8 wickets with 15 overs to spare.

India vs Afghanistan, World Cup 2023 Highlights: Rohit Sharma oozed class and elegance en route to a recording-breaking hundred, leading India to an emphatic eight-wicket win over Afghanistan in the ODI World Cup here on Wednesday. Hasmatullah Shahidi’s dogged 80 and the young Azmatullah Omarazai’s gutsy 62 took Afghanistan to 272 for eight after opting to bat. Jasprit Bumrah took four wickets and finished with his best ever figures in a World Cup match. All of it, though, was overshadowed by the show that Rohit put up, particularly in the first 10 overs. He eventually reached his century in 63 balls, thus making it the fastest ton by an Indian in the World Cup. On a batting beauty, India skipper Rohit (131 off 84) was unstoppable and flaunted his envious range of strokes. His record seventh World Cup hundred off 63 balls helped India gun down the target in 35 overs, giving a big boost to their net run-rate ahead of their third World Cup fixture against arch-rivals Pakistan on October 14.
