Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, Team India has to play one Test, three ODIs and only three T20 matches on the England tour. During this, Rohit has a chance to make a record of sixes.
The Indian cricket team is on a tour of England these days. Here under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, Team India has to play one Test, three ODIs and only three T20 matches against hosts England. That is, the Indian team has to play 7 international matches on this tour. In such a situation, Rohit has an easy chance to become the second Sixer King of the world on this tour.
Actually, Rohit Sharma is at number three in terms of hitting the most number of sixes in world cricket. Ahead of him is former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi. Rohit has hit a total of 464 sixes in 400 international matches so far.
It takes 13 sixes to beat Afridi
While the second-ranked Afridi had hit 476 sixes in 524 international matches. In such a situation, if Rohit Sharma hits 13 sixes in 7 international matches played on England tour, then he will overtake Afridi. In this way Rohit will become the second sixer king of the world.
Right now Chris Gayle is the number-1 Sixer King
However, despite hitting 13 sixes and beating Afridi, Rohit Sharma will be far away from becoming the world’s No. 1 Sixer King. In this case, Chris Gayle, who is called West Indies’ star player and Universal Boss, is at the top. Gayle has hit 553 sixes in 483 international matches so far.
Players with most international sixes (in all three formats)
