Rohit Sharma One Six Away From Entering An Elite List
Scoring a six seems more natural when you watch Rohit Sharma in action. The right-handed batsman has always been sensational while playing for India and always looked pretty comfortable in hitting sixes over the park. Now, he is on the verge to join the likes of Chris Gayle and Shahid Afridi in the elite list.
Rohit Sharma was at his menacing best during the second T20I against Bangladesh which India won comfortably by eight-wickets to level the three-match series. During his incredible 85-run knock, he surpassed MS Dhoni to break the record for most sixes by an Indian captain. Now, he is just one six away from entering 400-six club.
Rohit Sharma has struck 399 sixes in International Cricket:
The 32-year-old needs just one more six to join the elite 400-sixes club in international cricket. In the process, he will also become the first Indian to achieve this brilliant milestone. So far, the only two players to cross the milestone are former Pakistan batsman Shahid Afridi (476 sixes) and West Indies international Chris Gayle (534 sixes).
The Hitman was in fine form in the recently-concluded T20I series against Bangladesh where he led the team to a 2-1 win in the absence of regular skipper Virat Kohli. Rohit also overtook Kohli as the all-time highest run-getter in T20Is with a brilliant 85-run knock in the second T20I in Rajkot.
With 2539 runs from 101 matches, Rohit Sharma currently leads the run-scoring charts in T20Is but is being followed closely by skipper Kohli, who has 2450 runs to his name in 72 games and will be looking to surpass his deputy in the series against West Indies.

There is no denying the fact that Sharma is currently one of the best batsmen in the limited-overs format. He will be in action for India when the Virat Kohli-led side locks horns with West Indies Cricket Team. The first T20I will be played in Hyderabad on December 6th followed by the next two games at Thiruvananthapuram and Mumbai.
