Rohit Sharma, Vice-captain eyes world record of Chris Gaylein Florida T20I

Rohit Sharma Vice-captain on the cusp of fixing another feather into his already celebrated cap as he is merely a few huge scores away from becoming the batsman with most sixes in T20Is. Rohit will gain a chance to carve his name in history books when India secure horns against West Indies in the first T20I of the three-match series at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Florida on Saturday. Aside of three T20Is, India’s tour of Windies consists of three ODIs and two Tests as well.

Recently Rohit has 102 sixes to his names in the most precise format and if he succeeds to hit four more maximums in the upcoming T20I, he will go past New Zealand’s Martin Guptill and West Indies’ Chris Gayle in this distinguished list. With Gayle not being part of the T20I squad, Rohit has a clear field to transcend the mark of the West Indian.

Most sixes in T20Is:
105: Chris Gayle (WI)
103: Martin Guptill (NZ)
102: Rohit Sharma (IND)
92: Colin Munro (NZ)
91: Brendon McCullum (NZ)

Rohit is considered as one of the stable batsmen ever to perform in the precise format and he carries various records to his name as well. The swashbuckling opener is the present highest run-scorer in T20Is and he also has secured the greatest number of centuries (four) in this distinct format.

The right-hander will be anxious to get his World Cup form over to the Windies series, where he thumped five centuries and set many records on the biggest stage.
