AUS vs IND: Indian captain Rohit Sharma has reached 200 sixes in T20 internationals during the match against Australia in St Lucia. He is the first player to achieve this milestone in T20s, taking only 173 matches to do so.

Rohit smashed four sixes in the previous over bowled by Mitchell Starc. He reached the landmark on the first ball of the fifth over, bowled by Pat Cummins, in the Super 8 match of the T20 World Cup 2024.

Rohit Sharma Reaches 200 Sixes in T20Is

Leading the list of most sixes by a player, Rohit now holds a comfortable margin with 200 sixes, well ahead of Martin Guptill’s 173. India remains unbeaten in the ongoing 2024 edition, securing two out of two wins in the Super 8s.

A third win for India would significantly threaten Australia’s semi-final chances, especially after their unexpected defeat against Afghanistan at St Vincent. If Australia loses to India, they will have to closely follow the match between Afghanistan and Bangladesh to gauge their semi-final prospects.

Australia faces a must-win situation against India, having won one out of two matches in the Super 8 stage. They won against Bangladesh but lost to Afghanistan in Saturday’s clash.
