Rohit Sharma beats Virat Kohli with a spectacular batting milestone during India’s 3rd T20 match against the West Indies
Rohit Sharma beats Kohli, hit a pull-almost a catch at deep backward square leg for his sole six during his brief stint, and he scribed a remarkable batting accomplishment as India’s skipper on Tuesday.
Rohit Sharma may have retired injured due to a back spasm, but his 5-ball 11 with a four and six in the third Twenty20 International against West Indies on Tuesday ticked a box. Rohit looked to injure his lower back when swinging aggressively to the on-side and departed the field following a quick on-field chat with the physio. The BCCI’s medical staff is “watching his development,” according to an update. Suryakumar Yadav displays tremendous agility and pulls off an unbelievable ramp shot during the IND versus WI T20I.
Rohit hit a pull-almost a catch-at deep backward square leg for his solitary six during his brief visit. However, fielder Dominic Drakes palmed it over the line, allowing India’s skipper to surpass his predecessor in a one-of-a-kind batting list.
In 34 innings as India’s Twenty20 captain, Rohit currently has 60 sixes, whereas former captain Virat Kohli got 59 sixes in 50 games. MS Dhoni has 34 maximums to his name.
Indian captains with the most sixes in men’s T20Is:
Rohit Sharma (60 points)
Virat Kohli (59 points)
MS Dhoni, 34
Suryakumar led the Indian team’s aggressive attitude after Rohit’s early withdrawal with a blistering 76 that included eight fours and four sixes. His 44-ball innings assisted the visiting team in regaining the series lead.
Yadav, who reached his half-century in only 26 balls, dominated an 86-run stand with Shreyas Iyer (24) that virtually finished the game. Rishabh Pant’s undefeated 33 then propelled India across the finish line.
After the game, Rohit suggested that his injury was not as significant, implying that he would be available for the series’ next two games. “It’s fine for the time being. “We have a few days till the next game, so hopefully everything will be fine, “he stated.
“It was vital how we bowled in the middle overs,” Rohit continued. “They were about to form a hasty alliance.” We made excellent use of the weather and our changes. And then we chased in a very clinical manner.”
Rohit lavished accolades on Yadav, who formed a game-changing relationship with Iyer. “Surya batted wonderfully, and he had a nice relationship with Iyer.” The surface had something for the bowlers, and it was not an easy target. On a ground like that, it was critical to choose the appropriate swings and balls.”
