MS Dhoni’s long run at the top of cricket comes to an end as Rohit Sharma becomes the first cricketer in the world…

The T20 World Cup got off to an incredible start for Rohit Sharma. With the exception of the blow on his shoulder, which also forced him to leave the game early due to injury, the Indian captain was unstoppable on Wednesday at the Nassau Cricket Stadium in New York against Ireland. India got off to a winning start in the T20 World Cup thanks to Rohit, who made excellent decisions from the start and then took the lead with a brilliant half-century in the chase.

After hitting three sixes and scoring 52 off 37 balls, Rohit became the only player at the recently built stadium to score more than 50 runs. However, he chose to leave the field due to a sore right shoulder. The easy eight-wicket victory for India was made possible by his innings. As if that wasn’t enough, Rohit achieved a number of important runs at the top of the bat and as captain.

In the history of international cricket, he became the first player to hit 600 sixes. After just 427 games, Rohit’s six total is at 600 at this point. Shahid Afridi (476 sixes in 524 matches) and Chris Gayle (553 sixes in 483 matches) behind him.

In T20Is, Rohit also scored over 4000 runs, making history as the second batter in history to do so (after Virat Kohli) across all three game types. At the T20 World Cup, Rohit became the second Indian player after Kohli to reach 1000 runs.

As Rishabh Pant hit the game-winning six, Rohit became the most successful captain of India in T20I cricket history. As captain of the T20Is, he surpassed MS Dhoni’s win total. Rohit is now surpassing Dhoni’s 41 (Super Over wins not included) in 73 T20I victories with 42 as captain in 55 matches. Additionally, Rohit has a substantially greater victory % (77.29) than Dhoni (59.28). In 50 T20Is, Kohli has 30 victories as captain.

Rohit joined England’s Eoin Morgan and Afghanistan’s Asghar Afghan (42 wins each) in the overall list headed by Pakistan’s Babar Azam (46 wins in 81 matches). but dropped short of Pakistan’s Babar Azam (46 wins) as the captain with the most T20I victories, remaining in fourth place. Brian Masaba of the USA ranks second with 44 T20I victories.

India’s full performance:

After Rohit’s burst at the top, India smashed Ireland for 96 runs before Rishabh Pant scored 36 not out off 26 balls to take the score to 97 for 2 in 12.2 overs.

Eight of the ten Irish wickets were taken by pace, as all-rounder Hardik Pandya took 3-27 for India, Bumrah got 2-6 in three overs, and left-armer Arshdeep Singh returned 2-35.

In Sunday’s league stage championship match, India takes on Pakistan, a formidable cricketing opponent.

“First wickets established the tone for us,” stated Sharma. Though not much changed in the second innings, it was still a wonderful wicket to spend time on. We’re going to gear up for the Pakistan match as though everything will be the same.
