India beat Afghanistan by 8 wickets as Rohit Sharma breaks records.

India beat Afghanistan in their second game of this world cup 2023 by  8 wickets as it was the hitman Rohit Sharma show at the Arun Jaitley Stadium.

Afghanistan won the toss and made the decision to bat and they set a good score of 273 runs with the Afgan duo Azmatullah and Shahidi scoring half-centuries after the loss of 3 early wickets. Mohd Siraj had a forgiveable day as he gave the most runs with no wickets in return he has to improve in the next fixture.

Hardik and Bumrah were impressive with the ball with Hardik taking 2 wickets and Bumrah with 4 wickets.

The pair of Rohit Sharma and Ishaan Kishan came on to chase the score and history was created by Rohit Sharma with him breaking the record of Chris Gayle (553)  to make him the player to hit the most sixes in international cricket as he hits his 554th six.

Rohit went on to hit a century his 7th in world cup history making him the player with most centuries in World cup history he was later dismissed by Rashid Khan. 

Kholi and Iyer did the rest and chased down the total comfortably as Kholi hit another half-century, Rohit was awarded the man of the match for his brilliant innings, India looks good in the first two games and with the likes of Shubman Gill returning soon they would be unstoppable and more worries for the Afghanistan as they lose two in two games they have to get some positive results if they have to get in the top 4.
