Rohit surpassed Guptill to become the leading six-hitter in T20Is

Indian captain Rohit Sharma hit an unbeaten 20-ball 46 on Friday and became the leading six-hitter in T20I cricket after falling short in his side’s second T20I against Australia in eight overs.

Rohit, the highest run-scorer in T20Is, surpassed New Zealand opener Martin Guptill’s tally of sixes to top the list of six hitters in T20Is. Chasing 91 in eight overs, the India captain hit two sixes in the first over off Josh Hazlewood, and now has 176 sixes in the format.

He was followed by Guptill with 172 sixes and Chris Gayle with 124 sixes. Virat Kohli is the only other Indian batsman with more than 100 T20I sixes, currently with 104 sixes in the format.

Rohit, who played 138 matches, surpassed Guptill’s tally of runs in the format last month, later becoming the only male player with 3500 T20I runs.

Suzy Bates is the only batsman with more than 3500 runs at international level in the format. Diandra Dottin and Sophie Devine are the only women cricketers to record more than 100 T20 sixes.
