The league round of the Cricket World Cup has ended with India’s 160-run win against the Netherlands at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. After 39 days of superb cricketing action, India and New Zealand will lock horns with each other in the first semi-final at the distinguished Wankhede Stadium.

Following the first knockout game, a mouthwatering contest between Australia and South Africa will be played at the iconic Eden Gardens. In the league round, some players looked extraordinary and shattered several feats. Witnessing their exceptional performances thus far, it’s time to pick the best XI of the league round.

India captain Rohit Sharma has justified his role superbly in this World Cup, scoring 503 runs with a ton and three fifties in nine matches. With these numbers, he is also the second-leading run-getter for the Men in Blue. Against the Afghan side, he guided Team India to an eight-wicket victory with his 131-run innings off 84 balls.

This ton helped him better his compatriot Sachin Tendulkar’s World Cup record of six hundreds. Following this match, the 36-year opener looked sensational with his bat against Pakistan in Ahmedabad. In the seven-wicket win against the arch-rivals, Rohit chipped in with his 86-run knock (63 deliveries).

In this tournament, he has consistently delivered fierce starts to his team in this competition. The hosts will expect their captain to continue their excellent form in the knockout round so that they clinch the coveted trophy after 12 years.
