India skipper Rohit Sharma has become the only 3rd batsman to complete 3000 runs in the shortest format. He has joined the likes of outgoing India T20 captain Virat Kohli and New Zealand opener Martin Guptill. He achieved the record while playing for Men in Blues’ last match of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021. He went to strike a fifty off just 31 balls comprising 6 boundaries and a couple of sixes at a phenomenal strike rate of 160+.
Rohit Sharma achieved the special feat in his 116th game. He has over 3000+ runs at an average of 32+ which comprises 4 tons and 23 fifties.
Earlier today, Rohit Sharma was also sensational on the field against Namibia. He took a couple of catches to become India’s best fielder with the most catches in the shortest format. He has overtaken the likes of Suresh Raina and Virat Kohli.
Rohit Sharma is now all set to take T20I captaincy after Virat Kohli’s exit as skipper of the shortest format.
“Now I think it’s time for the next lot to take this team forward. Obviously, Rohit(vice-captain) is here and he’s overlooking things for a while now,” Kohli said at the toss.
