Rohit Sharma: The First Batter to Achieve a Historic Feat in Men’s T20Is



The Indian captain, Rohit Sharma, delivered a remarkable performance, smashing his fifth T20I hundred. With this achievement, Rohit becomes the sole player to have scored five centuries in the shortest format of the game, surpassing his compatriot Suryakumar Yadav and Australia’s Glenn Maxwell, who have four to their names. Despite a promising start, India found themselves in a precarious situation in the third over when both Yashasvi Jaiswal and Virat Kohli were dismissed in quick succession. Kohli’s dismissal for a golden duck left the fans in Bengaluru disappointed. However, Rinku Singh came to the crease and joined forces with the Indian skipper, forming a resilient partnership that ultimately saved the team. Rohit Sharma achieved a remarkable feat by scoring a century in a mere 64 deliveries, comprising of 10 boundaries and 6 sixes. The Indian captain concluded his innings with an unbeaten score of 121 runs off just 69 balls. This outstanding performance marked the fourth highest individual score by an Indian batsman in T20 Internationals.
