India vs Australia: Rohit Sharma surpasses Martin Guptill to own another big T20I record

The Indian righthanded batter now owns the record for hitting the most sixes in the shortest form of the game, as he surpassed New Zealand opener, Martin Guptill.

At the start of the match, Rohit and Guptill were on 172 sixes in T20I. In the rain-stricken game against Australia, which was limited to 8 overs per side, the right-handed batter played an explosive knockout of 46 (not out) on 20 deliveries. Leading the way from the front, the skipper hit four maximums in his unbeaten innings as Men In Blue chased the 91 goal in 7.2 overs, with six wickets in hand.

The 36-year-old had made his intentions clear in the chase when he sent the speedy Aussie Josh Hazlewood ahead of two big sixs in the first over of the chase. His first maximum was over long-on, while the second six was over deep midwicket. In the second bowled over by Cummins, the Mumbaikar slammed the pacer over the square leg for another biggie.

He even hammered Adam Zampa long term for his fourth maximum of the evening and the crowd at VCA went crazy and the stadium began to echo with chants of ‘Rohit-Rohit’.

With 176 sixes in his T20I career, Rohit – who is known as Hitman – now holds the record for hitting the most maximums in Twenty20 internationals. Rohit, meanwhile, also became the first player in history to break 500 boundaries in T20Is.

Earlier, at the 2022 Asia Cup, the Indian cricketer reached another important milestone in his T20I career when he became the leading run scorer in the T20Is, in men’s and women’s formats. He surpassed New Zealand’s Suzie Bates to rack up the most runs in the shortest format.
