More about Sourav Ganguly – A legend
In the ICC World Cup knockout game of 20 March 2003, Ganguly became the first Indian batsman to score the 100th century. It gave India a massive boost to the cricket betting industry, with its national team achieving a broken global record in the world cup.
During the 2003 Kingsmead World Cup semifinal, he obtained the amazing result in a match over Kenya in Durban. The first wicket was made of 74 runs by Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag. But on the 19th, Sehwag came out, and Ganguly went out to bat.
The second wicket was completed by Ganguly and Tendulkar with 103 runs. The bowler dismissed Master Blaster for 83; but the Prince of Kolkata finished 111 times with 5 6 and 5 fours.
In the allotted 50 overviews, India took 270/4 and then bowled Kenya out for 179 to finish in the tournament. During the summit fight, in Johannesburg, India beat Australia.
Rohit Sharma, who has scored a massive amount of races against Bangladesh during the quarters-finals clash at the Australian Cricket World Cup, is the only Indian holder who scores a century in a World Cup knockout game.
Ganguly about the famous player Rohit Sharma
The tournament was spinning Rohit’s luck. In India, Australia, and England, he endured a very narrow breakaway chance in his matches against Pakistan. The trend toward Bangladesh has also persisted.
In specific Rohit Sharma wants to score as the player is nearing an achievement that only eight Indians have reached so far. Sunil Gavaskar, Mohammad Azharuddin, Virender Sehwag, MS Dhoni, Sourav Ganguly, Virat Kohli, Rahul Dravid, and Sachin Tendulkar have only passed the milestone to date.
Rohit Sharma is the world’s only player to score the three double centuries on ODIs; placing him behind skipper Virat Kohli, second on the top international ODI batsmen list.
The pitch is in support of the batsmen in Southhampton, and since England against Pakistan ODI was hosted last month; South Africa does not have any pushovers when it scores more than 730 runs.
