Besides Sachin Tendulkar, Rachin Ravindra becomes the only player to achieve a massive cricket World Cup feat

The all-rounder of New Zealand cricket team Rachin Ravindra has been a breakout star for his team in the Cricket World Cup 2023 and once again made an impact with a century against Australia at Dharamshala, though in a losing cause. The explosive century of Rachin and the death-over-striking of James Neesham went in vain as New Zealand could not chase the 389 runs set by Australia, losing by just five runs in a nail-biter on Saturday. Ravindra smashed 116 in 89 balls. His knock consisted of nine fours and five sixes, and he struck at a strike rate of over 130. His century, the second made by the talented all-rounder in his debut World Cup, came in just 77 balls, which is the fastest century by a Kiwi in the tournament's history. Ravindra broke his own record of an 82-ball century against England in the tournament opener.
Ravindra is in an elite company of greats who have smashed two World Cup tons for Kiwis: Glenn Turner in 975, Martin Guptill in 2015, and Kane Williamson in 2019.
Besides the legend of team India, Sachin Tendulkar (22 years and 313 days), he is the only player to have won two World Cups before turning 26.
In this tournament, Rachin has scored 406 runs at an average of 81.20, with a strike rate of over 107. He has scored two tons and two fifties, with the best score of 123*. He is the third-highest run scorer in the tournament so far.
