On the 23rd of June, India’s limited-overs captain Rohit Sharma completed 13 years in international cricket. It wasn’t before 2013 that the right-handed batsman became one of the most high-impact players when he began opening the innings. And by doing that, Rohit Sharma smashed 27 centuries and over 7000 out of his total 9115 ODI runs.
Rohit also built his reputation as a batsman with incredible six-hitting abilities. His six off a pull shot to dispatch over the mid-wicket boundary is one of the sights to behold for any cricket-lover. Yet, since Rohit Sharma’s debut in 2007, several batsmen also boast of similar skills.
We take a look at five players with the most number of maximums since Rohit Sharma’s first international appearance:
Martin Guptill – 318
New Zealand’s Martin Guptill is undeniably one of the cleanest strikers of the ball. Having cemented his place in the limited-overs side, Guptill has formed a potent opening combination with Henry Nicholls and Colin Munro in ODIs and T20Is respectively.
The right-handed batsman is also one of the best fielders going around currently. He put the same in display during the 2019 World Cup, having affected crucial run-outs and taking jaw-dropping catches. The 33-year old has 318 international sixes and his score of 237 in ODIs is the second-highest in the format.
