Most Sixes in T20 Internationals: Rohit Sharma inching towards a World record in Asia Cup 2022

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma has been on a record-breaking spree in recent months. Be it with captaincy or his batting skills, the Mumbai cricketer has consistently reset history. In the ongoing Asia Cup, too, Rohit is on the brink of a world record. Here, we take a look at Rohit Sharma could break the world record for most sixes in T20 Internationals in Asia Cup 2022.

Rohit Sharma could break the record of most sixes in T20 internationals in Asia Cup 2022

Rohit Sharma is one of the most frequent six-hitters in world cricket. The player has everything going in his direction to consistently get those big hits. He has the power, timing and range to hit a lot of sixes. So far, in 133 T20I games, he has hit 164 sixes. Rohit stands No.2 on this list.

New Zealand opener Martin Guptill enjoys the top spot, having scored 172 sixes in 121 matches till now. Rohit is just eight sixes away from the record. Assuming India would reach Super Four, Rohit would have five games to beat this record. The monster six-hitter that he is, it won’t be a surprise if he achieves it in one game itself.


The Indian skipper needs to step up

Rohit Sharma scored 12 runs from 18 balls in the team’s first Asia Cup game against Pakistan. He seemed to struggle to time the ball. This has actually been the case in the last few months. It is high time that Rohit steps up for the team’s cause.

Rohit is known for his quick starts in the powerplay and later stabilizes his game in the middle-overs. However, India’s approach has now changed and it is necessary for Rohit to be more aggressive at the top. He is good against the pacers and he has the ability to make the field restrictions count. Some solid cameos at the beginning will help the team going forward and the player’s confidence, too.
