Rohit Sharma has been in amazing form in ODIs. The right-handed batsman played a key role in India’s series wins over Australia and New Zealand. Rohit Sharma top-scored for India with a 77-ball 62 as India chased down the target of 244 with seven overs to spare in 3rd ODI.
During the knock, Rohit hit two 6s, the second of which helped him equal former India captain MS Dhoni’s six-hitting record for India in ODIs.
MS Dhoni has hit a total of 222 sixes in 337 ODIs, seven of which came while playing for Asia XI. Meaning, Dhoni has hit 215 sixes for India in the 50-over format.
MS Dhoni did not play in the 3rd ODI due to a sore hamstring.
Rohit and Dhoni currently hold the top joint spot with Sachin Tendulkar in second place, having hit 195 sixes for India in ODIs. Sourav Ganguly (189 sixes) is third while Yuvraj Singh (153) is fourth in the list.
