Four back-to-back tons in T20, Rohit bags another record

Rohit Sharma bagged another record by scoring four Twenty20 International (T20I) centuries. He achieved the milestone in 58 balls during the second T20I against the Windies at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. His century includes eight boundaries and six sixes. Rohit Sharma was also involved in a 123-run opening wicket-stand with fellow opener Shikhar Dhawan. The stand-in skipper, who notched up 2,203 runs by the end of the second match in Lucknow, also became the second-highest run-scorer in the T20Is, trailing New Zealand opener Martin Guptill (2,271).

Rohit also surpassed Kohli to become the highest run-scorer for India in the T20Is. Kohli, who has been rested in the ongoing T20I series, currently has 2,102 runs to his name, at an average of 48.88.

New Zealand opener Martin Guptill leads the tally with 2,271 runs. Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik, who has 2,190 runs to his name is now in the third position just after Rohit Sharma.
