Rohit all set to break Tendulkar’s massive India record in Asia Cup

Will Rohit Sharma Break Sachin Record?

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma is ready for the Asia Cup 2022 challenge mostly for two reasons, first to lead his side winning the Asia Cup for the 8th time, and second to overtake Sachin Tendulkar’s most runs record by an Indian in Asia Cup. Here in this article we talk about Will Rohit Sharma Break Sachin Record in The Asia Cup 2022.

The Indian opener is currently ranked second in the Asia Cup’s all-time run scorers list (883 runs in 26 innings). With 2 matches confirmed to be played by each team, Rohit Sharma will have a chance to overtake the legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar if he makes 89 more runs in those two games.

However, the top teams out of 3 will qualify for the next super four round, with India and Pakistan are the two most likely team to get through from their group. The right-handed batter will get more chances to overtake Sachin or he can even become the first batter from India to score 1000 runs in Asia Cup.

With two hundreds and seven half-centuries in 21 innings at the continental event, Tendulkar averages 51.50 in the Asia Cup. As a matter of fact, Virat Kohli, who ranks third on the list with 766 runs in 14 innings, isn’t too far behind Tendulkar.

Below is the list of highest run-scorers from India at the Asia Cup:

  1. Sachin Tendulkar – 971
  2. Rohit Sharma – 883
  3. Virat Kohli – 766
  4. MS Dhoni – 690
  5. Shikhar Dhawan – 613

India will start their Asia Cup 2022 against the arch rival Pakistan on Sunday, August 28.

India faced a defeat by 10 wickets when both the neighbours met last time in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, and India will try to take revenge of that loss by winning the game on Sunday.

The men in blue then face Hong Kong in the second and final game of the tournament on August 31. The top-2 teams from the group will then take part in the Super Four round, playing the other three sides for a place in the final.

Group B consists of Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. Sri Lanka and Afghanistan will lock horns in the opening match of the 15th edition of Asia Cup on Saturday.
