After becoming the first ever batsman to cross the 3,500-run milestone in T20Is, Rohit Sharma has secured yet another record to his name in the game’s shortest format. Martin Guptill was narrowly beaten by Indian pip while Virat Kohli closed the gap to the duo in the all-time charts.
With another match-winning performance in the T20I series against New Zealand, Rohit Sharma has once again proved why he is considered one of the best batsmen in the world. Not only did he score a brilliant hundred in the series opener, but he also became the first ever batsman to cross the 3,500-run milestone in T20Is.
With this achievement, Rohit has further cemented his place as one of the all-time greats of the game’s shortest format. In doing so, he has also beaten New Zealand’s Martin Guptill to the record, who was earlier the leading run-scorer in T20Is.
What makes Rohit’s achievement all the more special is the fact that he has achieved it in just 189 innings, which is the joint-fifth fewest by any batsman. Furthermore, he is also the fastest to reach the milestone, doing so in just his seventh year of playing T20Is.
There is no doubt that Rohit is a masterclass batsman and with records like these, he is sure to go down as one of the all-time greats.
