Cricket News – One-day series between India and Australia is going on Saturday (March 2). 5 ODI matches will be played in this series. The first match will be played at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium of Hyderabad. When Rohit Sharma gets on the field for the first ODI against Australia today, another achievement can be added in his career.
Team India opener Rohit Sharma, if he has a six in this match, then he will match a special record of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Rohit is just one step away from the record of 350 sixes in Mahendra Singh Dhoni International cricket. He will join this elite group once he launches a six.
Let me tell you that Mahendra Singh Dhoni had scored 40 runs in 23 balls for the second T20 against Australia in Bangalore. It included 3 sixes and 3 fours. However, despite this India lost the match.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni has so far played 352 sixes in 526 matches. West Indian Chris Gayle (506 sixes) is on top of this list. As far as ODIs are concerned, both Dhoni and Rohit have made 215 sixes for the country, but Dhoni has also hit 7 sixes against South Africa in the Asia XI.
In the ODI series against New Zealand recently, Rohit has scored two sixes in the third ODI. Along with that, he reached the top (215 sixes) jointly with Dhoni. In T20, Rohit Sharma (102 sixes) was just one step away from Martin Guptill and West Indian Chris Gayle (both 103-103). If Rohit Sharma needs only two sixes to break his record.
Right now, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma need 77 runs to complete 1,000 runs in the opening partnership against Australia. After Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes, this will be the second couple to do charisma. In the recent series against Australia, both of these pair made 1, 47, 15 runs in the last three matches, but when it comes to domestic grounds, the picture is different. 57.74 percent of the runs against Australia are built on home ground.
