With a sensational 2023 Cricket World Cup performance, Rachin Ravindra smashes Sachin Tendulkar’s world record


Rachin Ravindra, an all-rounder from New Zealand, is the batter with the most WC centuries. He continued his incredible run at the Cricket World Cup 2023 in India by smashing his third century of the competition. In the Bengaluru World Cup match against Pakistan, Ravindra achieved this record. Ravindra scored 15 fours and a six while smashing 108 in 94 balls.

He scored runs at a strike percentage exceeding 114. 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 tons are also the most by a batter from New Zealand.

The all-rounder’s third century is also the highest score by a batter in their first World Cup.

Rachin Ravindra has now surpassed his idol, Indian great Sachin Tendulkar, having scored three centuries in the World Cup before turning twenty-five. Sachin turned 25 before he had two WC tons.

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 has amassed 523 runs at an average of 74.71 and a strike rate of over 107 in eight games thus 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.

Before scoring 25 runs, Sachin also 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 elimination matches left.

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

Before the game, Pakistan chose to bowl first after winning the toss. Pakistan is ranked sixth with three wins and four losses, while New Zealand is ranked fourth with four wins and three losses. For both teams to have a chance to advance to the semifinals, they must win this game.
