India has been blessed with the best when it comes to top-order batting, and who better to lead the line of assault other than their skipper, Rohit Sharma.
Stitching together a fiery knock against hapless neighbors, he went on to rack up a milestone surpassing the likes of his best friend in the national team, Virat Kohli.
In the list of highest international runs in the shortest format of the game, Rohit Sharma went passed Virat Kohli and Martin Guptill to kiss the pinnacle.
As Sri Lanka came knocking, he continued his blitzkrieg exactly from where he left it against West Indies. Ripping apart the fast bowlers and the spinners alike, Sharma hammered a fine 44 from just 31 balls before being dismissed.
Kohli had a golden opportunity to go to the zenith before Roston Chase bested him with a skitter in the second T20I of the series. He was rested from the third T20I while the entire Sri Lanka T20I series will not see him in action because of the break that he is on.
Martin Guptill has also been one of the fiery strikers of the cherry and is undoubtedly a man with some intricate finesse in the shortest format of the game.
Rohit and Ishan Kishan went on a rampage right from the word go. Kishan played a very special knock today as he destroyed the Lankan bowlers completely.
Shreyas Iyer joined the party late but rocked the Lankan bowling with extreme prejudice into every single corner of the park that would be stoking the Indian hopes for a middle-order that has been tested way too frequently in recent times.
Twitter couldn’t hold back their joy as Rohit Sharma kissed the pinnacle with a knock that had class and aggression written all over it in the brightest livery.
