Sri Lanka’s Charith Asalanka scored the first ODI century of 2024. His knock of 101 which came against Zimbabwe included 4 massive sixes.

As mentioned earlier, Rohit Sharma had a cracked of 2023, as he went bonkers from the word go. He will look to continue his onslaught in 2024 in whatever limited games he will feature in.
