Rohit Sharma overshadows KL Rahul with record century: India v Sri Lanka player ratings

Chitrabhanu Kadalayil evaluates the performances of the 11 Indian players who competed in this Cricket World Cup clash

KL Rahul scored his first one-day international hundred in nearly three years as India beat Sri Lanka on Saturday in their final Cricket World Cup group match at Headingley. It was also the second ODI century of Rahul's career - to go with the four times he has reached three-figures in Tests and twice in Twenty20 internationals.

But the day still belonged to opening partner Rohit Sharma, who became the first batsman to score five hundreds in a single World Cup. Rohit also equalled former teammate Sachin Tendulkar's record of six centuries in the tournament overall.

Credit for India's victory also goes to Jasprit Bumrah - once again - as the fast bowler took 3-37 to help limit Sri Lanka to 264-7.
