New Delhi. The fourth match of the ongoing five-match T20 series between India and West Indies cricket team will be played on August 6 at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Florida. When the Indian team will enter the field in this match, all eyes will be on the 35-year-old veteran captain Rohit Sharma. Sharma had retired hurt due to back pain in the third T20 match. Regarding whether he will participate in the fourth T20 match, he says that there are few days left for the fourth match of the series and hopefully he will be fine.
If ‘Hitman’ Sharma plays in the fourth T20 match, then he will have a golden opportunity to achieve a big achievement. In fact, the record of hitting most sixes in international cricket is recorded in the name of Caribbean explosive batsman Chris Gayle. After this, the name of former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi comes in second place. After this, Indian captain Rohit Sharma is in third place.
When Sharma takes the field in the fourth T20 match, he will have a golden opportunity to leave Shahid Afridi behind. Afridi has 476 sixes in his name in international cricket. At the same time, Sharma has hit 474 sixes so far. If the Indian captain’s bat gets three more sixes in the next match, then he will leave Afridi behind in the matter of hitting the most sixes.
Let us tell you that Afridi has done this feat (476 sixes) in 508 innings while playing 524 matches for his team Pakistan between 1996 and 2018. At the same time, Rohit Sharma has achieved the feat of hitting 474 sixes in 426 innings while playing 409 matches for the Indian team since 2007.
West Indies’ explosive batsman Chris Gayle holds the record for hitting most sixes in international cricket. Gayle has hit 553 sixes in 551 innings, playing 483 matches for the West Indies between 1999 and 2021.
