The Indian Cricket team is on a roll in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup at their home ground. The hosts are yet to lose a match in the tournament are remain at the top of the points table with eight wins from eight matches so far. Now India will take on the Netherlands for the last league match of the tournament on 12th November at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
Although this match will not have any effect on the points table but India will be looking to go the semis undefeated and the Netherlands aren’t a big threat to them. It will be a great opportunity for the batters to put some runs on board on a batting-friendly pitch of the Chinnaswamy and all eyes will be on the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma. Rohit has been in tremendous form and is among the leading run scorers of the tournament with 442 runs from eight matches at an average of 55.25 including 1 hundred and two half-centuries. His attacking approach in the first 10 overs turned out to be beneficial as he set the great momentum for the rest of the batters to come.

It is the same ground where Rohit smashed his maiden ODI double ton in 2013 against Australia. Let’s have a look at his records on this ground across all formats.
