India vice-captain Rohit Sharma is on the verge of breaking another record in the shortest format of the game as India get down to play the three-match T20I series against West Indies on Saturday at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Florida.
Rohit, who has hit 102 sixes in 94 T20Is so far, can now go past West Indies' Chris Gayle in the list of most sixes hit in the 20-over format in international cricket.
Gayle has smashed 105 sixes in 58 matches and is followed by New Zealand's Martin Guptill, who has smashed 103 maximums in 76 T20I matches he has played till now. Rohit needs 4 sixes t reach the zenith.
However, the 39-year-old West Indian will not be able to add to his sixes tally as he has been rested for the T20Is series against India and will feature in the subsequent ODI series.
Rohit already holds the record for being the highest run-scorer in T20Is. He has amassed 2331 runs so far at an average of 32.37 with four hundreds and 16 half-centuries.
