Rohit Sharma, the Indian opener, equaled Ricky Ponting’s record of most ODI centuries with his 30th century during the India vs New Zealand ODI match. Sharma, who has been in excellent form in recent years, reached the milestone in his 216th innings, while Ponting had reached the same milestone in his 365 innings.
The Indian opener has been in sensational form in recent years, and he has been one of the key players for India in limited-overs cricket. Sharma has been the leading run-scorer for India in ODIs for the past few years and has been one of the most consistent performers for the team.
Ricky Ponting, the former Australian captain, had held the record for most ODI centuries for a long time, and it was only recently that Sachin Tendulkar overtook him. Sharma’s century against New Zealand has now seen him equal Ponting’s record and he will be looking to go past the Australian legend in the near future.
