Rohit Sharma, the natural 6 hitting batsman has become the highest run-scorer in T20Is on Friday. Rohit Sharma surpassed Martin Guptill's 2272 runs during the 2nd 20-20 match at the Eden Park in Auckland. He scored 2288 runs playing in 92 T20Is with an average of 32.68.
Mumbaikar reached this feat in a style by hitting the white ball into the stands in Ish Sodhi's bowling. Martin Guptill (2272), Shoaib Malik (2263) and Virat Kohli (2167) are next to Rohit Sharma in the stats.
Rohit Sharma (102) is the third batsman to slam 100 sixes in T20Is. Before him, Chris Gayle (103) and Martin Guptill (103) are on the elite list. The 31-year-old batsman made his T20 debut against the English men on September 19 in 2007.
India's stand-in-captain scored 29-ball 50 as India outclassed the Black Caps by 7 wickets in the 2nd T20. The tourist batsman has delivered 5 fours and 4 sixes in his outing.
Rohit Sharma is one step away to bag the historic maiden T20 series in New Zealand when both the teams clash together for the decider on Sunday at 12:30 pm in Hamilton.
