Rohit Sharma Becomes First Batter to Hit 600 Sixes in International Cricket

 

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma rewrote cricket history during the T20 World Cup opener against Ireland. Leading his team to a convincing victory, Rohit achieved a personal landmark – becoming the first batter ever to smash a phenomenal 600 sixes in international cricket!

 

His knock of 52 runs included four boundaries and a crucial three sixes. These mighty hits not only propelled him past the 600 mark but also made him the second Indian player, after Virat Kohli, to score over 4,000 runs across all three formats.

 

This achievement is a testament to Rohit’s aggressive batting style, aptly nicknamed “Hitman.” He’s built his reputation on his ability to effortlessly clear the ropes, entertaining fans worldwide. With a total of 499 matches played, Rohit has left legends like Chris Gayle and Shahid Afridi trailing behind him in the all-time six-hitting list.

 

Unfortunately, Rohit’s innings was cut short due to a shoulder injury. However, his contribution with the bat, along with a supportive knock from Rishabh Pant, ensured a dominant Indian victory.

 

India won the toss and elected to field first, restricting Ireland to a paltry 96 runs. Chasing a modest target, Rohit smashed three sixes to reach his historic milestone before retiring hurt. Rishabh Pant‘s unbeaten 36 runs sealed the win for India with eight wickets remaining.

 

While the injury is a concern for Indian fans, Rohit’s record-breaking feat serves as a reminder of his immense talent and power-hitting prowess. The cricketing world eagerly awaits his return to action and his pursuit of further cricketing glory.
