Rohit Sharma on the verge of making two T20I records
XtraTime Web Desk: Indian cricket team vice captain Rohit Sharma looked the only batsman who can hit a few big shots against Windies in the first game of three-match T20I series. After hitting two huge sixes and two boundaries he tried to hit ace Windies spinner Sunil Narine over long on, but failed to get much elevation and was caught by Kieron Pollard on the boundary.
He was the top scorer for the Men in Blue with 24 runs and with two sixes to move past Martin Guptill to become the player with the second-most sixes in T20Is. Hitman needs two more sixes to get past Chris Gayle & become the player with the most sixes in this format.
Also, Rohit needs one more score of more than 50 to have the most number of scores above 50 in the shortest format. Currently, he has 20 50+ scores and shares this feat with his captain Virat Kohli.
Rohit Sharma has scored 358 runs against WI in T20Is and enjoys himself against the Windies attack:
* That’s the 3rd highest runs against WI in T20Is.
*He has most runs by an Indian batsman against WI in T20Is.
*He needs 66 runs to become the highest runs scorer against WI in T20Is.
