ind vs nz rohit sharma on the verge of two milestones against new zealand in eden gardens kolkata – Latest Cricket News

Indian opener Rohit Sharma has had a stellar start as T20 captain, with the team winning the T20I series against New Zealand at home. After winning in Jaipur and Ranchi, Rohit’s army has now reached Kolkata and there can be no better place than Eden Gardens to do a ‘clean sweep’. We are saying this because Rohit likes this ground very much and he has played the biggest innings of ODI cricket (264 runs) on this ground. In today’s match too, he has a chance to make two great records.

IND vs NZ: Many changes will be seen in Kolkata against New Zealand today, this may be India’s playing XI

Rohit has hit 147 sixes in T20 International cricket so far and in such a situation, if three sixes come out of his bat today, then the record of hitting 150 sixes will be recorded in his name. In the last match played in Ranchi, Rohit played a blistering innings of 55 runs in 36 balls with the help of five sixes. If Rohit manages to do so, he will become the first Indian and the second cricketer in the world to hit 150 sixes in T20 Internationals. Apart from him, so far only Martin Guptill of New Zealand has been able to do this feat.

Now talking about the second record, today Rohit has the chance to score the most runs against New Zealand as a captain. He has scored 252 runs in 6 matches against the Kiwi team so far. He needs 36 runs to break Eoin Morgan’s record for most runs as captain against New Zealand. Morgan has so far scored 287 runs in 10 T20 matches against New Zealand. Virat Kohli is at number three in this list, who has scored 218 runs while captaining in 8 matches.

Rohit recently broke Shahid Afridi’s record of sixes

Rohit broke a big record of sixes by former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi in the second T20 International against New Zealand. He overtook Afridi to hit the fastest 450 sixes in international cricket. While Rohit achieved this feat in the 404th innings, Afridi touched this figure in 487 innings. Rohit is the only Indian to hit 450+ sixes in international cricket.
