India captain Rohit Sharma was in a butcher mood as he ripped apart Australian spearhead Mitchell Starc in the India vs Australia T20 World Cup 2024 clash in Gros Islet, St Lucia. The Men in Blue are facing the Aussies in their last clash of the Super Eight stage and are looking to confirm their place in the semifinals of the tournament. 

Meanwhile, Starc has registered an all-time lowest record. The 29 runs leaked by Starc in the 3rd over of India's innings are the most conceded by him in a single over in International cricket ever. 

The Indian captain was in a different mood and struck him for four sixes and a four in the over. He started with a six-over deep extra cover on a fuller ball that did not move. The 37-year-old went over extra cover again on a similar ball outside off. He looked to go over mid-wicket on the next one but did not get the meat of the bat but managed to clear mid-on.

He ensured he got the meat of the bat on the next one, depositing a fuller one over deep mid-wicket for a huge six and missed only one ball in the over. Rohit then hit another six, although it came off a top-edge on a full-toss over third-man.

Rohit went on to smash 92 runs from only 41 balls in a jaw-dropping knock against the Aussies. He brought up his fifty in just 19 balls and came close to break the record for the fastest T20 World Cup ton. But he went back for 92 when the team was on 127 from 11.2 overs. Rohit also broke the record for the most runs scored by a batter in T20Is as he raced past the record-holder Babar Azam. Rohit now has 4165 runs to his name in the format.
