Wanted to make it count in quarters: Rohit Sharma

Wanted to make it count in quarters: Rohit Sharma
After scoring his second century at the iconic MCG on Thursday, Rohit Sharma said he wanted to make this inning count at the grand stage.Aided by Rohit's 137, the defending champions put up a challenging total of 302/6 against Bangladesh in the World Cup quarter-final. Bangladesh were bowled out for 193 runs in 45 overs.

“It is the World Cup quarterfinal, so I wanted to make it count. I am glad we eventually posted a good total and now it is important to come back and defend,” Rohit said at the mid-innings break. The Mumbaikar was slow to start with but gathered momentum in the middle. He kept clobbering the bowlers all around the park to smash 14 boundaries and three huge sixes in his 126-ball innings. “It was important for me stay at the crease, especially knowing we lost a few wickets in the middle. We knew it (pitch) would be slow and low. I knew if I could stay till the 35th over I could make it count,” said the elegant batsman.
