Ahmedabad: India’s limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma added another feather to his already impressive bag as he became India’s second-only player after Virat Kohli. He scored 9,000 runs in T20 format during the T20 international and England in Ahmedabad.
Rohit Sharma ran 11 runs to finish 9,000 runs in the T20s and reached a milestone in the first over of the game. Rohit hit the sixth with a cross against Adil Rashid in the first over before Jofra Archer removed him with a 12-run run.
Chris Gayle (West Indies – 13296), Kieron Pollard (WI – 10370), Shoaib Malik (Pakistan – 9926), Brendon McCullum (New Zealand – 9922), Virat Kohli (9650 run *), David Warner (Australia – 9451), Aaron Finch (AU – 9148) and AB de Villiers (South Africa – 9111) are also part of the list.
Rohit also became the first Indian player to complete six TES T20I at home again, after opening innings with KL Rahul.
Rohit’s ability to hit runs quickly took many bowling line-ups by storm, while his ability to stay on high ground for a long time made him even more dangerous. Rohit is a serial-breaker in limited overs cricket. He was the only person to score three hundred double the world in one day and hold the record for the highest score in a format. Back in 2014, Rohit had left the world of cricket in amazement with his 264 playing for Sri Lanka at Eden Gardens.
