Indian batters Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli entered the top ten list of leading runscorers in the ICC World Cup 2023 after the Men in Blue's dominating eight-wicket win over Afghanistan on Wednesday, October 11.

Rohit registered a 63-ball hundred to continue his red-hot form in ODIs and threw his name in the list of contenders for the leading runscorers. Kohli also registered an unbeaten fifty, his second consecutive half-century in the tournament, and took his runs tally to 140 after two innings, most for India in the ongoing edition.
