Highlights

  • Rohit is now level with Martin Guptill for most sixes with 172
  • The Indian skipper was dismissed for 11 in the first T20I but still reached the milestone
  • Rohit also has the most runs in T20Is

Rohit Sharma had yet another forgettable day at the office after he was dismissed for just 11 of nine deliveries in the first T20I between India and Australia. Despite the disappointing note, Rohit created history by going level with Martin Guptill for most sixes at the international level in the T20 format. The Indian skipper now has 172 sixes to his name along with Guptill and could have gone past him before Hazlewood got the better of him.

Before the match, Rohit needed two sixes to go level with the Kiwi batter as he was residing with 171 sixes. On the fourth ball of the second over Rohit did not sit back and smashed pat Cummins for six that was misjudged by the fielder. This resulted in the 35-year-old going level with Guptill on 172.

Rohit Sharma vs Martin Guptill

It took 137 matches for Rohit to record the number of sixes while Guptill needed fewer games to reach the tally. As things stand Guptill is more efficient as he needed 121 matches to reach the tally of 172.  The duo is not only competing for most sixes, but they are competing for most runs as well. Currently, it is the Indian star who has the most number of runs with 3631 while Guptill is on 3497.  They both will go head-to-head in the warm-up game before the T20 World Cup as India are scheduled to meet the Kiwis.
