- The second match of the series will be played between India and West Indies today
- Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi’s record will be the target of Rohit Sharma
- Chris Gayle has hit the most sixes in international cricket so far
IND vs WI : Team India’s captain Rohit Sharma is considered a six specialist. When he is in form and batting well, then no bowler can stand in front of him. He can hit sixes whenever and wherever he wants. This is the reason that he is included in the list of players who hit the most sixes in international cricket. Today, when Rohit Sharma comes out to play in the second T20 match against West Indies, a new record will be on his target.
Chris Gayle has put 553 sixes
Chris Gayle of West Indies holds the record for hitting the most number of sixes in international cricket. He has hit 553 sixes in his career and for this he has played 483 matches. In this case, Shahid Afridi of Pakistan is at number two, who has hit 476 sixes in 524 matches. India’s Rohit Sharma is at number three. He has hit 473 sixes in 407 matches. That is, Rohit Sharma is only three sixes behind Shahid Afridi. Rohit Sharma will equal Shahid Afridi as soon as he hits three sixes, while he will leave Afridi behind after hitting four sixes. The special thing is that Rohit Sharma may be a little behind Shahid Afridi in terms of hitting sixes, but Rohit Sharma has played very less matches than Shahid Afridi. While Afridi has played 524 matches, Rohit will take the field today to play his 408th match.
These batsmen have also set record sixes
There has been talk of number three, but who are the other two batsmen in the top 5, also know about them. Rohit Sharma is followed by New Zealand’s Brendon McCullum, who has hit 398 sixes in 432 matches, and New Zealand’s Martin Guptill at number five, who has hit 378 sixes in 356 matches. In the first match played between India and West Indies, Rohit Sharma scored 64 runs in 44 balls. It also included two sixes. It has to be seen whether Rohit Sharma’s bat plays in today’s match or not and how many runs he manages to score.
