Rohit Sharma is having a blast at the ICC World Cup 2019. Despite the earlier loss of his partner Shikhar Dhawan in the tournament, India is still making good runs, thanks to the Ro ‘Hit-man’ Sharma. In the match against Bangladesh, the Mumbai Indian captain equaled the record of Kumara Sangakkara by scoring his fourth century in the world cup. He has all the chances of breaking the record as India is already in the semi-finals and expected to play more matches.
Rohit Gifts Autographed Hat To Young Fan
Apart from that the beautiful act by the right-handed opening batsman also won the heart of a young girl who was hit by one of his sixes that he pulled off during the Bangladesh match. When one of the sixes landed in the stands and went on to hit a fan, Rohit could not do anything at that moment. He just hoped that it did not injure the fan. But after getting out on 104, the star batsman himself walked to the young girl fan and gifted her a hat with his autograph on it.
He also had an animated chat with her as she and person accompanying were seen smiling happily. The BCCI posted a picture of Rohit with the fan on Twitter captioning it, “She got hit by a @ImRo45 maximum and the opener was kind enough to check on her and give her a signed hat.” The girl named Meena was hit by the ball in her face when the supporter in front of her could not catch it.

Convincing Win For India
India registered a convincing win against Bangladesh as the Men in Blue put up a decent performance with both bat and ball. The highlight of the Indian innings was the century by Rohit Sharma and a timely knock by KL Rahul that gave the Indian team a solid start of 180 runs for the first wicket.
After the dismissal of both the openers, India struggled to reach the expected 300 plus total which earlier thought quite possible when both Rahul and Rohit were at the crease. Young Rishabh Pant impressed with his aggressive batting but fell short of 2 runs to score his first half-century.
