Rohit Sharma created a record, for the first time an Indian made this unique record

Rohit Sharma Six Records in WTC History: Whenever Indian team captain Rohit Sharma enters the field, some record or the other is waiting for him. Today in the last match of the Test series being played between India and England, Rohit Sharma hit a six and with that he achieved a feat which no Indian player has been able to do till now. Now he has become the second batsman in the world to hit 50 sixes in the history of the World Test Championship i.e. WTC.

World Test Championship started in the year 2019

The ICC World Test Championship started in the year 2019. Since then, most of the test matches are being held under this. Meanwhile, if we talk about the player who hit the most sixes during this period, then he is England captain Ben Stokes. He has hit 78 sixes in 82 innings of 45 matches. Rohit Sharma has played 54 innings of 32 matches so far and as soon as he hit his first six today, his number of sixes reached 50. While Ben Stokes has hit 78 sixes in 45 matches, Rohit has completed 50 in just 32. This series has not gone very well for Ben Stokes, otherwise he could have added a few more sixes to his account.

Rishabh Pant’s name after Ben Stokes and Rohit

After this, if we talk about the number three batsman, it is Rishabh Pant. He has played 24 matches and hit 38 sixes. After this comes Jonny Bairstow, who is playing his 100 Test match today. He has hit 29 sixes after playing 35 matches. That is, if seen from this perspective, it does not seem easy to match Rohit Sharma at the moment. Anyway, this is the last match of the series. After this, the Indian team will play IPL for two months and players of other teams will also get busy in it. There are not many ICC matches during IPL. But it will be interesting to see how many more sixes Rohit Sharma manages to hit in the remaining match. However, he does not seem to be breaking Ben Stokes’ records anytime soon.

England’s entire team was out after scoring 218 runs.

Meanwhile, if we talk about the match, England’s first innings was out for only 218 runs. Opener Jack Crowley has scored the highest 79 runs for the team. None of the other batsmen could even cross the 50 mark. Ravichandran Ashwin, playing his hundredth match, took 4 wickets, while Kuldeep Yadav took 5 wickets. Ravindra Jadeja also got one wicket. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj did not get any success.
