Rohit Sharma Completes 400 Sixes In International Cricket
India’s limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma completed 400 sixes in International cricket when he smashed Sheldon Cottrell to a mid-wicket six in the ongoing third T20I against West Indies at Wankhede Stadium. The talisman right-hander also completed his 350 sixes in T20 cricket. The Mumbai batsman also completed 750 fours in the shortest format of the game.
Rohit Sharma is one of the most consistent batsmen and he is a different beast altogether in the white-ball format. Rohit knows Wankhede inside out as he has played most of his cricket at his home ground.
Rohit looks set to get a big one.
Meanwhile, West Indies southpaw batsman Chris Gayle leads the chart with 534 International sixes. Furthermore, former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi had scored 476 International sixes in his illustrious career.
On the other hand, Rohit Sharma is looking in good touch in the all-important decider against the Windies. Rohit is currently batting at 55 runs off just 24 balls. Sharma has hit four sixes in this innings and five fours so far. The right-hander had two quiet games in this series and India will want their vice-captain to fire at all cylinders. KL Rahul who had scored a fine fifty in the first match is also looking alongside Rohit Sharma.
Both of these batsmen have a flamboyant style of batting and they are a treat to the eyes. Wankhede is known to be a run-fest and India is off to flying start as they have added 102 runs in the first eight overs. Hence, the hosts will look to post a gargantuan total on the board.

Meanwhile, the West Indies captain Kieron Pollard had won the toss and decided to bowl first. The series is 1-1 and both the teams have everything to play for in the decider. India had won the first match at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad by six wickets. Subsequently, the visitors bounced back in style as they won the second game at Thiruvanthapuram to win the match by eight wickets.
