Rohit has a chance to come out of Chris Gayle
The record of hitting most sixes in international cricket is in the name of West Indies’ stormy opener Chris Gayle, who has hit 553 sixes so far. Rohit now has a chance to leave Gayle behind. Gayle is not playing international cricket right now, while Rohit is playing cricket continuously. In such a situation, Rohit can soon overtake Gayle.
