Indian opening batsman Rohit Sharma lived up to his “hitman” reputation with a blistering innings in the final T20I of the three-match series against the West Indies at home. On a flat surface at the Wankhede Stadium, Rohit spearheaded a rollicking start alongside KL Rahul as the duo set up a ‘sixathon’.
Rohit was the more aggressive batter of the two individuals as he plundered the West Indies bowlers with meaty blows to all corners of the ground.
He exhibited emphatic striking and brought up his half-century in just 23 balls before accelerating further to bludgeon 71 off 34 balls.
Rohit hit six boundaries and five maximums in his blazing knock. He also added another feather in his illustrious cap by becoming the fastest batsman to 400 international sixes. He has reached the feat in 354 matches, 60 games faster than Chris Gayle who got to this milestone in 414 matches across formats.
