In the Tuesday Asia Cup Super 4 match between India and Sri Lanka, Rohit Sharma scored 10,000 ODI runs, becoming the second-fastest player to do so.

Rohit Sharma is back in action. The Indian captain’s comeback to form, after fighting inconsistent play, couldn’t have happened 22 days before the World Cup. In preparation for the biggest cricket spectacle, Rohit helped himself to another batting record, one he will cherish long after he retires. Rohit, the only player to record three double century in ODIs, solidified his reputation as an all-time one-day great on Tuesday by becoming the sixth Indian and the 15th player overall to reach 10,000 runs in the format.

With this accomplishment, Rohit overtakes the cricket’s elite to become the second-fastest hitter to ascend Mount 10K. Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Sourav Ganguly, Brian Lara, Chris Gayle, MS Dhoni, and even his mentor Rahul Dravid were far behind. In his 241st ODI innings against Sri Lanka in India’s Asia Cup 2023 Super Four match in Colombo, Rohit accomplished the milestone with a six, surpassing Shahid Afridi to become the tournament’s all-time leading six-hitter.

After only 205 innings, Virat Kohli, who recently reached his 10,000th ODI run, is at the top of the chart. His captain Rohit is ranked second. He needed 18 less innings than the great Tendulkar, 22 fewer than Ganguly, 25 fewer than Ponting, and 32 fewer than Dhoni. Lara (278), Gayle (282), Dravid (287), and Tillakaratne Dilshan (293) are among those who are sluggish below. Along with surpassing the 10000-run barrier, Rohit also made history by smashing a six, making him the Asia Cup’s all-time leading six-hitter.

The start-up process for Rohit was quick. A delectable half-volley was sent to Rohit on the second ball of the game, which he smashed past the covers to start the game off with a boundary. As Kasun Rajitha and Maheesh Theekshana tightened their line and length, pushing Rohit to play himself in, he was forced to keep an eye out. Rohit was still scoring at a 75 percent strike rate even at that time. Charith Asalanka created a mess close to the boundary, giving Rohit his second boundary as a gift, but Rohit was itching. In two instances against Rajitha, he left himself space, but both of Rajitha’s deliveries were despatched down leg stump for wides.

Rohit played out two dots and then blasted the ball down the ground for a maximum with a little shuffle.

Rohit changed gears and went into beast mode, almost like the six broke the chains. Before Matheesha Pathirana was welcomed with a six as Rohit sped to a half-century off 44 balls, Dasun Shanaka was blasted for four boundaries in an over.

for Gill and Rohit, a new height
India got off to a great start for the second straight game, as Rohit and Shubman Gill quickly pushed the score above fifty in just 10 overs. The two scored a staggering 1000 runs while opening the innings together, contributing 50 runs in total.

The combined total of 1046 runs, including five fifty-run partnerships and four century partnerships, has been amassed by Rohit and Gill in just 12 innings, or 91.3 runs per inning. Even in this situation, Gill and Rohit scored an additional 80 runs before Dunith Wellalage snatched the young Indian for 19 off 25 balls.
