India vs Bangladesh: Rare record for Rohit Sharma during Bangladesh ODI

During the second ODI against Bangladesh here on Wednesday, captain Rohit Sharma became the first Indian and only the second batter in international cricket history to hit 500 sixes.

After injuring his hand in the field and coming out to bat at No. 9, Rohit put up a strong fight late in the run chase. He batted brilliantly (51 not out off 28 balls) with three fours and five sixes to give India a fighting chance, but he couldnt get them over the line.

Only West Indies legend Chris Gayle has more international sixes than Rohit, who has 533. There is no other Indian batter who has more than 400 sixes. MS Dhoni, with 359 sixes, is the closest Indian player to Rohit.

Shahid Afridi (476), Brendon McCullum (398), and Martin Guptill (383) are the third, fourth, and fifth most prolific six-hitters in international cricket, respectively.

Chasing a target of 272, India were 65/4 before Shreyas Iyer and Axar Patel put on a century stand to resurrect Indias innings. However, Iyer and Axar fell in quick succession and Shardul Thakur followed them too which brought Rohit to the middle. His half-century propelled India late in the run chase.

The Indian skipper brought the equation down to 12 runs needed off two balls and hit a six from there, but couldnt find the boundary off the last ball as Bangladesh won by five runs.
