Rohit Sharma Is Close To Create Another World Record In T20I
The Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma is on the verge of creating another world record in T20I history. He has to hit only two more sixes in T20I cricket to become the batsman with most sixes in T20Is.
Moreover, he also became the leading six-hitter in international cricket as an Indian batsman. While MS Dhoni has hit 348 international sixes, Rohit Sharma has already hit 349 international sixes.
Now, Rohit Sharma is very close to becoming the leader in the most sixes in the T20I career list. He is currently in the third position with 102 T20I sixes. Only Chris Gayle (Windies) and Martin Guptill (New Zealand) are ahead of him as both have hit 103 T20I sixes.
