IND vs SL 2022: As soon as he got the responsibility of captaining the Indian team in all three formats, Rohit Sharma has started capturing records one by one. Recently, he has won a clean sweep in the limited-overs home series played against the West Indies. After this spectacular victory, along with Team India, Captain Rohit Sharma also recorded many records in his name. And now Rohit’s eyes are now set on making another world record against Sri Lanka (IND vs SL) in the 3-match T20 series starting from February 24.
This time the eyes will be on the world record
Team India’s captain Rohit Sharma can make a special record in the domestic T20 series against Sri Lanka. He’s pretty close to it. If Rohit is able to hit 12 sixes in this series, then he will become the batsman to hit the most sixes in T20 International cricket.
At present, this record is in the name of New Zealand’s strong opener batsman Martin Guptill. Whose name is 165 sixes. At the same time, Rohit has 154 sixes in his name. From the very beginning, Rohit has been known for his ability to hit sixes. In such a situation, the break of Guptill’s record in this series is almost certain.
The batsman will become the highest run-scorer
In the Sri Lanka series, Rohit Sharma will be able to make the record of hitting the most number of sixes in T20 cricket or not, but during this time he will definitely get a special record recorded in his name, in fact, Rohit has the most number of sixes in T20 cricket. Only 37 runs are needed to become the highest run-scorer.
Right now only 2 players ahead of him are former Indian captain Virat Kohli and New Zealand’s Martin Guptill. India has to play 3 matches in the T20 series against Sri Lanka. Virat Kohli will not be a part of this series. They have been given a chance to rest. In such a situation, Rohit will easily overtake both these batsmen.
