Rohit v short ball - 27 balls, 53 runs


85 - Balls for Rohit Sharma to complete his century, the joint third-fastest among his 24 hundreds. His fastest was off 82 balls, against England at Trent Bridge last year. He also got an 85-ball hundred against Sri Lanka in Colombo in 2017. Both those innings came in chases.

136.5 - Rohit's strike rate against the fast bowlers; against the spinners, it fell slightly, to a still-impressive 110.7. Rohit was especially scathing on Hasan Ali (41 off 26 balls) and Wahab Riaz (32 off 23). Mohammad Amir bowled only eight balls to him, and conceded five. Among the spinners, Imad Wasim was the best, conceding only 20 off 24.

196 - Rohit's strike rate off back-of-a-length or short balls off Pakistan's fast bowlers - he scored 53 off 27 such balls, including six fours and two sixes. Amir escaped unscathed, however, conceding only four off seven balls of those lengths, while Wahab conceded 25 off 12, and Hasan Ali 24 off 8.

58 - Runs scored by Rohit off the pull and cut shots - he scored 30 from 14 cuts, and 28 from eight pulls. Against the pacers, he scored 21 from seven cut shots, and 20 off six pulls. Overall, his most productive scoring region was backward point, where he scored 28 of his 140 runs.

125 - Rohit's strike rate in his first 20 balls, which was surprising considering he generally gets off to measured starts. In fact, his innings progression in Manchester highlights how well he stepped up at the start of the innings, in the absence of his regular partner Shikhar Dhawan. He kept up an impressive 100-plus strike rate through each of the 20-ball intervals, except in the 41-60 ball period, when he scored 16.
