India vice-captain Rohit Sharma is just two big hits away from breaking MS Dhoni’s record of hitting most number of sixes for India in ODIs. Rohit, who missed out against Afghanistan after getting out cheaply to Mujeeb ur Rahman, will have the opportunity to break the most sixes record in India’s next ICC World Cup 2019 match against West Indies at Old Trafford, Manchester on Thursday.
Rohit currently has 224 sixes to his name in 210 ODIs and needs just two more sixes to go past Dhoni’s tally of 225 ODI sixes. If Rohit achieves the same against West Indies then he will also climb to the 4th spot in the most sixes in ODIs list.
The list is currently led by former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi, who has a staggering 351 sixes to his name. Afridi is followed by West Indian talisman Chris Gayle, who has so far hit 324 sixes in ODIs.
The Indian vice-captain has been in tremendous form in this World Cup. With two centuries to his name against South Africa and Pakistan, he is currently India’s highest run-scorer in World Cup 2019. Rohit has 320 runs to his name in just 4 innings.
India would hope Rohit continues his stellar form against West Indies on Thursday to take India on the doorstep of a semi-final berth
