Rohit Sharma scored his fifth hundred of the tournament during the Men In Blue’s final group stage encounter against Sri Lanka. The opener is expected to play a key role in the semi-final encounter against the Kiwis.
Being the captain of the team, Virat Kohli has answered a fair share of questions during his tenure so far. But this time around, Kohli was on the other side of the mic as he proceeded to interview the vice-captain and the leading run scorer of the competition.

Introducing Sharma as the “man of the tournament”, Kohli proceeded to ask his deputy about the stunning run he finds himself in. Sharma replied:
“It is an important tournament for us. We had some really good form coming into the World Cup. As a top order batsman, I wanted to carry on the form I had in the past, coming into a tournament like the World Cup. When you start off really well again South Africa, I just carried on the confidence.”
“The World Cup is a premiere tournament. The focus should always be on your routine, what you try and do in the bilateral games”
To culminate, Kohli noted how dejected The Hitman was when he missed out on selection for the 2011 World Cup, which India went onto win. He concluded by stating that he wishes for two more knocks so that they can lift the trophy together.
