Rachin Ravindra's record

Rachin Ravindra, an all-rounder from New Zealand, is the batter with the most World Cup centuries. He extended his incredible record at the Cricket World Cup 2023 in India by hitting his third century of the competition. In the Bengaluru World Cup match against Pakistan, Ravindra achieved this milestone.

The left-handed batsman broke idol Sachin Tendulkar’s remarkable 27-year-old World Cup record with a brilliant 108 from 94 balls. Rachin’s three centuries in this World Cup alone have surpassed the records held by Glenn Turner (1975, two centuries), Kane Williamson (2019, two centuries), and Martin Guptill (2015) for the most centuries by a Kiwi batter in a single World Cup edition.

In CWC history, Rachin’s three tonnes are also the most by a batter from New Zealand. The all-rounder’s third century is also the greatest score by a batter in their first World Cup.

Rachin scored three century in the World Cup before reaching twenty-five. Sachin Tendulkar turned 25 before he had two WC tonnes.

In terms of having the most runs in a single World Cup edition before the age of 25, Rachin and Tendulkar are now tied.

Rachin scored 523 runs at an average of 74.71 and a strike rate of over 107 in eight matches so far, including three hundreds and two fifties. His highest rating is 123*. With 545 runs, he is the second-highest run scorer in the competition behind Quinton de Kock of South Africa.

Prior to scoring 25 runs, Sachin previously scored 523 runs in the 1996 World Cup. Rachin has a chance to pass Sachin since there is still one group stage match and maybe one or more knockout matches left.

Rachin needs just 10 more runs to tie the record set by Jonny Bairstow, who scored the most runs by a batsman in their first World Cup with 532 runs (in 11 innings).

Fast bowler Akash Deep made a dream debut to his Test career on Friday as he picked up three crucial wickets in his first six overs, leaving England reeling after they had won the toss and elected to bat first in the fourth Test match against India at the JSCA stadium in Ranchi. Akash Deep was almost unplayable in the early part of the first session.

Captain Rohit Sharma handed Akash Deep the new ball from the other hand, and the right arm seamer impressed critics with his bowling. Akash Deep’s pace remained in the 130s and Jurel had to make quite a brilliant take off the third ball, which flew down the leg side of Duckett. He conceded just two runs off his first over.

He picked up the wicket of Zak Crawley in his second over, but the delivery was declared a no-ball by the umpire. He then picked up the wickets of Ben Duckett and Ollie Pope afterwards and smashed Crawley’s off stump. This time it was a legitimate delivery and Crawley was sent back to the pavilion.

Zak, who earlier survived due to Akash Deep’s no ball, was bowled after scoring 42.

Akash Deep hails from Sasaram, Bihar and shifted to Durgapur on the pretext of a job but went to a cricket academy and there has been no looking back for the youngster since then. Akash Deep is the third Indian player after Sarfaraaz Khan and Dhruv Jurel to make his debut in the ongoing five-match Test series.
