Rohit Sharma’s milestone: Surpassing MS Dhoni and nearing Virender Sehwag’s India record



India’s Rohit Sharma scored a century on day one of the third Test in Rajkot, surpassing MS Dhoni to claim the second spot for most sixes in Test cricket by an Indian batter. Rohit has the chance to become the first Indian to hit 100 or more sixes in Tests, with only three other players achieving this feat. During the Rajkot Test against England, Rohit effortlessly deposited Joe Root for a huge six, displaying positive intent after facing challenges in previous series. He is also close to reaching the milestone of 600 international sixes, making him the first batter to achieve this feat. Despite previous struggles, Rohit displayed fluent batting skills in the third Test, forming a crucial partnership with Ravindra Jadeja and rescuing India after a tough start.
