Cricket World Cup 2023: Rohit Sharma is poised to record a historic first in one-day international cricket


In ODI cricket, Rohit Sharma is about to accomplish a historic first. He needs two more sixes to make history as the first hitter from India to score 50 in an entire calendar year.

Already this year, Sharma’s ODI cricket career has taken off. In only 20 games, he has amassed over 1,000 runs at a strike rate of over 100 and an average of over 50. In addition, he has smashed the most sixes of any Indian batter in a calendar year—19.

In 2011, Sachin Tendulkar struck 49 sixes, and Sharma is on track to surpass that record. It is also possible for Sharma to surpass David Warner’s record of 50 sixes in an ODI season, which was set in 2016. Additionally, in the 2023 World Cup ODI rankings, he surpassed Virat Kohli.

Nonetheless, Sharma has demonstrated incredible fortitude and tenacity in recovering from his injuries and giving it his all. As the Indian ODI team’s captain right now, he is setting the example for the group.

Sharma’s accomplishments are evidence of his diligence and commitment. He is among the world’s most reliable batsmen and is constantly trying to get better. Young batsmen look up to him as a role model and are motivated to pursue their goals by him.
