Rohit Sharma Sets Three World Records

Rohit Sharma is known as the ‘Hitman’ around the world. On Monday, the Indian cricket team skipper demonstrated once more why he is so adored by making a star-studded Australian bowling lineup look pedestrian in a T20 World Cup Super 8 encounter in St Lucia. Rohit smashed eight sixes and seven fours against Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood, scoring 92 runs off 41 balls. Rohit ended his innings with a strike rate of 224.39.

India’s win over Australia would seal them a semi-finalspot and Rohit Sharma gave India just the start that they needed. Rohit Sharma set two world records. The first was that he is now the first player to hit over 200 sixes in T20Is. He now also has the most number of sixes against an opponent in all international cricket.
