Rohit Sharma did a quick batting against the Windies.
Hitman hit a total of seven sixes in 3 innings.
New Delhi. Everyone is aware of the batting style of the current captain of the Indian team, Rohit Sharma. From India, he is the king of sixes in international cricket. The Indian captain, known as Hitman, does not miss hitting sixes in any format. In the two-Test series against West Indies, Rohit has scored 1 century and 2 half-centuries in 3 innings. In which he hit a total of 7 sixes. Now Hitman is going to do that feat soon where Sixer King Chris Gayle took 22 years to reach.
Universe Boss is famous all over the world for his dashing style. He has tested the bowlers with his aggressive batting in every format. But Rohit Sharma is also seen one step ahead of Gayle. At present, Chris Gayle is on top of the players who have hit the most sixes in international cricket. He has hit 553 sixes in 551 innings from 1999 to 2021. But if we compare Rohit Sharma’s matches and innings with Gayle, then Hitman appears one step ahead of him. Rohit Sharma has hit 529 sixes in just 462 innings. He is now just 24 sixes away from Gayle.
Gayle’s record will be broken this year itself.
Rohit looked very aggressive in the Test series. After seeing which it can be guessed that Hitman will soon demolish this great record of Gayle. Chris Gayle took 22 years to hit 553 sixes, while Rohit Sharma started his career in 2007. Hitman can demolish this record of Chris Gayle only in the 16th year. If Sharma ji continues to bat in this style, he would need only a few matches to hit 24 sixes. It is expected that Hitman will match Chris Gayle till the World Cup or Asia Cup.
