Rohit Sharma eyes 'world record' in third T20I against New Zealand
New Delhi : Indian skipper Rohit Sharma turned highest run-scorer in the T20Is after he scored a quick 50 against New Zealand in the second match of ongoing series. Now, he eyes a world record that he can accomplish as he plays third T20 against the Kiwis. Sharma needs just two sixes to surpass New Zealand’s Martin Guptill and West Indies batsman Chris Gayle (both with 103 sixes) to become the batsman with most sixes in T20Is.
During the recently concluded ODI series against New Zealand, Rohit Sharma had slammed two sixes in the last encounter, with that he shares the joint highest six-hitter for India tag with MS Dhoni. Both have scored 215 hits.
Rohit Sharma has captained India in 14 T20I matches and the team has won 12 out of them with their only loss coming against Sri Lanka in the Nidahas Trophy in 2018. On the other hand, Kohli has led India in 20 T20Is in which they won 12 games, lost seven while one game against Australia in 2018 was abandoned due to rain.
