3 International cricket world records Rohit Sharma might break in 2023

Rohit Sharma is one of the most talented batters that this generation has seen. Although he did take some time to get into the groove, once he converted himself as an opener, things started to change for Rohit. He is in the last few years of his career and 2023 would be a vital year for the current Indian skipper. On that note, here, we take a look at three International cricket world records Rohit Sharma might break in 2023.

1) Most runs in T20Is – 4008 (Virat Kohli)*

Rohit Sharma has held this record before but along with Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, too, has a chance to get ahead on this list. The Mumbai batter currently has 3853 runs and it is a matter of a few innings between Virat and Rohit to decide who goes to the top.

India might not afford a lot of matches for both Virat and Rohit in T20Is this year. Hence, it will be interesting to see who will stand at the top by the end of 2023.

2) Most sixes in career across formats – 553 (Chris Gayle)

Getting the most career sixes is an international cricket world records Rohit Sharma might break in 2023. Rohit Sharma currently has a total of 502 sixes. The player will be a part of a lot of games this year and hence, he can break Gayle‘s record.

Rohit Sharma is a top six-hitter and if he founds form, he can surely score a lot of them in a chunk. Indian fans will hope for the same in 2023.

3) Highest individual ODI score as captain – 219 (Virender Sehwag)

Rohit Sharma once scored 208* as an ODI skipper. He fell behind by just 11 runs to claim this record which was set by Sehwag.

It has been a while since the opener has got a double century in ODIs. However, Rohit is perfectly capable of that. If he does that, at least, once more, since he is the skipper of the squad, he will break Sehwag‘s record.
