Rohit Sharma is no stranger to create massive records in either formats of the game. And he will be on the verge of creating another feat, when he will come to bat in the second, India vs West Indies T-20 International today. In this second match at Thiruvananthapuram, he will be more than willing to add an another feather to his already illustrious career. The destructing Indian opener just need one more six to join the elite 400-sixes club in international cricket. A club which is a dream to many stroke hitting players.
Rohit Sharma will also become the first Indian to achieve this milestone. That makes it an ever bigger feat to achieve.
Right now, there are only two players who have ever achieved this milestone. And you can easily guess their names as they are known for power hitting. This point makes it even more sweeter for Rohit sharma, as he is more of an elegant cricketer who is knows for his timing and placement.
Rohit Sharma had a chance to clinch this record even in the first India vs West Indies match. Unfortunately, he ended up gifting his wicket at a small score of 8.
Apart from this massive feat, he is even threatening Virat Kohli’s 3 year old domination on International cricket. How?
Currently, Virat kohli is sitting on the top with 2183 runs to his name across all International formats in 2019. He is the leading run scorer in the world in the current year. However, Indian opener Rohit sharma is not far behind him.
Rohit Sharma, who has played lesser amount of matches then Virat kohli in this calendar year but still he have managed to secure the second spot with 2090 runs.
Now, the ball is in Rohit’s court, if he played well in the second, India vs West Indies t-20 match.
Since 2016, Virat Kohli has finished as the top run getter across all the formats of the game but this time it can be changed. We can get a new run machine this year, if Rohit sharma produces some magic with bat.
Regarding the India vs West Indies match at Thiruvananthapuram, Indian team will be looking for an improved show with the bowling and fielding department. On the other hand, West Indies will be looking for a redemption against India.
A win for India on Sunday will seal a yet another series win in the shortest format of the game. And it will be very crucial for the Indian T20 world cup campaign.
