Rohit Sharma, often regarded as the most stylish India player, is in scintillating form in the ongoing World Cup 2019 and the 36 boundaries, including six hits over the fence so far are a testimony to that. But of all these strokes, his one shot which he played off the bowling of Pakistan's Hassan Ali over backward point during his 140-run knock has forced everyone into nostalgia, with many comparing it to Sachin Tendulkar's iconic six during 2003 World Cup in South Africa.

Even the International Cricket Council (ICC) posted a video on its Twitter handle comparing Rohit's six to Sachin Tendulkar's iconic six over backward point which he played off the bowling of fiery Shoaib Akhtar during 2003 World Cup. ICC also asked people to share their opinion on who do they think played the shot better -- Hitman or Master Blaster.

"Sachin in 2003 or Rohit in 2019 - who did it better?" ICC captioned its video.

Sachin, instead of comparing Rohit's shot to his, replied, "We both are from INDIA and in this case, AAMCHI MUMBAI as well....So heads I win, tails you lose!"

It was Rohit Sharma's powerful knock of 140 runs off just 113 balls that helped India post a huge total on board after they were invited to bat by Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed after winning the toss.

India won the rain-curtailed match by 89 runs via DLS method after Kuldeep Yadav, Hardik Pandya and Vijay Shankar picked up two wickets apiece.

Rohit has already amassed 319 runs in just three innings of World Cup 2019 at a whooping average of 159.50, with the help of two centuries and a half century.
