The cricketing fraternity was full of praise for Rohit Sharma, who scored a record-breaking fifth hundred at this World Cup, against Sri Lanka in Leeds.
A record breaking 5th World Cup century in #CWC19 for Rohit Sharma. A pure pleasure to watch. Surely he will leave a legacy as one of the great white ball batsmen.— ian bishop (@irbishi) July 6, 2019
Different pitches, different oppositions, plus the world cup stage...5 hundreds!... with a possible 2 games to go is just ridiculously brilliant!#RohitSharma— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) July 6, 2019
Rohit's opening partner KL Rahul made a hundred as well.
It has been a class display from Rohit Sharma this World Cup, to score 5 centuries in a single edition in just 8 innings is truly special. Feel delighted for KL Rahul as well, has been a pleasure to see him score a 100 today. Brilliant for Indian Cricket #IndvSL pic.twitter.com/6EYdgD4OHi— VVS Laxman (@VVSLaxman281) July 6, 2019
Unbelievable consistency from Rohit Sharma, World Cup 100's running in him like haemoglobin in our bloods. A good 100 from KL Rahul as well and a well deserved win for Team India.

3 consecutive 100s and 5 in a single @cricketworldcup is just phenomenal, Rohit.— Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) July 6, 2019
Very good to see @klrahul11 go on to convert a good knock into a 100 as well! Good signs. #CWC19 #INDvSL pic.twitter.com/p7e3cduV8B
Rohit Sharma is playing at another level, fatherhood has helped him immensely. Also, nice to see KL Rahul convert this into a 100. #IndvSL— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) July 6, 2019
