Ravindra became the first New Zealand batsman to score three centuries in a World Cup and also the first debutant to score three centuries in a World Cup edition.
Kiwi all-rounder Rachin Ravindra has become the first player in the history of World Cup cricket to score three centuries in his debut campaign. The southpaw continued his stellar tournament with another century against Pakistan in Bengaluru. Ultimately he was dismissed for 108 (94).
Ravindra had earlier scored centuries against Australia (116) and England (123 not out) in the World Cup. He has also scored more than 500 runs in the World Cup and is currently second only to South Africa's Quinton de Kock (545).
During the opening match of the tournament (against England), Ravindra, at the age of 23 years and 321 days, became the youngest Kiwi player to score a century in the World Cup. Ravindra broke the record of former New Zealand batsman Nathan Astle, who had achieved this feat in 24 years and 152 days.
Kane Williamson played a brilliant inning of 95 runs in 79 balls in this match and during this he hit ten fours and two sixes. With this brilliant innings, Kane Williamson has become the highest run-scorer for New Zealand in the ODI World Cup. Williamson has so far scored a total of 1077 runs in 24 innings and in doing so he has broken the record of Stephen Fleming (1075).
