There is absolutely no stopping Rohit Sharma in the ongoing World Cup. On Tuesday, he scored his fourth ton of the competition as India beat Bangladesh by 28 runs to enter the semifinals. In doing so, Rohit became the first Indian to score 4 centuries in a single World Cup. Rohit scored 104 runs with the help of 7 fours and 5 sixes.
One of those sixes that landed in the stands ended up hitting an Indian fan named, Meena. Rohit could not do much at that moment except perhaps hoping that the fan was not hurt seriously. But after the game, India’s star man came up with a beautiful gesture. Rohit Sharma himself walked to the fan and presented her a hat with his autograph on it. Rohit Sharma was also seen having an animated chat with the lady as there were smiles all around.
Talking about the game, India registered a pretty comfortable win. The Men in Blue, who had suffered a defeat prior to their latest outing, put up a good performance with both bat and ball to get back to winning ways. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul gave India a solid start by adding 180 runs for the first wicket. At that stage, it looked like India would cross the 350-run mark easily.
However, Bangladesh did well to pull things back and restrict India to 314 for 9. Apart from Rohit Sharma, Rahul also impressed with the bat, scoring 77. Young Rishabh Pant also played a handy knock of 48 while other middle-order batsmen once again failed to get going. For Bangladesh, Mustafizur Rahman was the pick of the bowlers, picking up 5 wickets.

In reply, Bangladesh put up a good fight but were all out for 286 with two overs remaining. In-form Shakib Al Hasan and Mohammad Saifuddin scored fifties but they were not enough to take Bangladesh over the line.
