Rohit Sharma T20 runs: Team India skipper has got his name registered in the history books with a new record under his belt.
During the first T20I of the ongoing Sri Lanka’s tour of India in Lucknow, the team India have got off to a brilliant start after Sri Lankan skipper Dasun Shanaka won the toss and elected to field first.
Having demoted himself down the order during the third T20I against West Indies, Rohit Sharma was back at the opening slot and stitched together a brilliant 111-run partnership alongside Ishan Kishan for the first wicket.
The one dominating the proceedings however, was Kishan, who brought up his 2nd T20I half-century in mere 30 deliveries, and at the time of writing was unbeaten at the score of 71* off 43 deliveries.
India skipper Rohit Sharma, on the other hand came up with a 32-ball 44 after which he was cleaned up by Lahiru Kumara on the ultimate delivery of the 12th Over.
The 34-year-old however, got his name registered in the history books during the innings, as he leapfrogged New Zealand’s Martin Guptill to became the leading run-scorer in T20 internationals (men’s) in the world.
