Sachin replies to ICC comparing his ‘six’ with Rohit’s
During the match between India and Pakistan when Rohit Sharma thumped Hasan Ali for a sensational six over point in the 27th over, cricket fraternity suddenly started drawing parallels between his six and Sachin Tendulkar’s Centurion six against Shoaib Akhtar in the 2003 World Cup clash.
Even ICC got into the scene, asking the viewers to rate who is better.
“Sachin in 2003 or Rohit in 2019 – who did it better?,” ICC posted on Twitter.

Fans were of the opinion that Rohit Sharma’s shot was way better while some fans backed Sachin Tendulkar’s shot which came off fiercest Shoaib Akhtar’s bowling.
The Little Master himself replied later with an interesting caption. “We both are from INDIA and in this case, AAMCHI MUMBAI as well….So heads I win, tails you lose.”

A fantabulous century from Rohit Sharma and some sensational bowling from Kuldeep Yadav and Hardik Pandya helped India beat Pakistan by 89 runs (D/L method) in their group stage clash at Manchester on Sunday (June 16).
Talking about his innings on Chahal TV, Rohit Sharma disclosed the top secret behind his best knock in the peak clash of the summer’s showpiece event.
“In England, no matter how the wicket is, flat or with something for the bowlers, you have to take time initially for the first six-seven overs to see how the pitch behaves and then plan your innings accordingly,” Rohit Sharma said.
“The team has a lot of stroke-makers who like to play their strokes, so it becomes very important for us to start cautiously. I think we did that and initially, our plan was to see off the new ball and then go thapathap (take the attack to the bowlers),” he said.
