Rohit Sharma entered the record books as he broke Chris Gayle's record for the most international sixes during India's ICC World Cup 2023 clash against Afghanistan on Wednesday, October 11. Rohit pulled off a quick 30-ball fifty while chasing a 273-run target and set up a new world record after smashing his third six of the game during the eighth over.

The Indian skipper needed only three sixes to surpass Gayle's tally of 553 international sixes. Rohit started aggressively to put India ahead in the game at Delhi's Arun Jaitley Stadium and also completed 1000 runs in the ODI World Cup record. He broke Gayle's record for sixes with a huge six over deep mid-wicket on Naveen ul-Haq's delivery.
