Rohit is India’s highest run-scorer in T20Is, breaks world record for most centuries
Rohit surpassed Virat Kohli, who has 2101 runs in the format
Rohit Sharma on Tuesday achieved twin milestones, first by surpassing regular captain Virat Kohli to become India’s highest run-scorer in T20 Internationals, followed by the most number of centuries - 4 - in the shortest format.
Rohit hit an unbeaten 111 off 61 balls to complete his fourth ton in T20 Internationals. When he reached a personal score of 11, he surpassed Kohli’s India record of 2101 runs in 58 innings. After today’s innings, Rohit now has 2203 runs to jump to the second spot in the all-time list led by New Zealander Martin Guptill (2271).
Rohit achieved his feat in style, clobbering a 149kph delivery off pacer Oshane Thomas over the mid-off boundary in the fifth over.
Rohit took 79 matches to reach the milestone.
