Rohit Sharma Sixes: Cricket has indisputably evolved into a batsman’s sport since the T20 format was introduced. The handle bearers now frequently go for boundaries from the very first delivery, so the bowlers are compelled to take cover for huge maximums.

The game has become significantly more favorable to batters since smaller fields and larger bats were introduced. As a result, several cricket records have been set and broken. First innings totals have reached new heights, and bowlers have made a century of runs conceded in a single period.

The powerplay regulations began to favor the batsman more as bats got heavier, boundaries got smaller, and other changes were made. Today’s wickets are constructed primarily for entertainment purposes, and more crucially, the usage of two new balls in ODIs looked to be the last straw for the bowler.

Rohit Sharma was able to smash his own records from the previous two years three times in a row to achieve the record for the most sixes in a calendar year. In 2017, Rohit broke AB de Villiers’ record for the most sixes in a year with 65.

Record after Record: Record-Breaking Machine (Rohit Sharma)

Then, in 2018, he set a new world record by hitting 74 sixes, breaking his previous mark. Rohit broke his previous year’s record for sixes by hitting 78 this year. A record in and of itself, Rohit currently holds the top three spots for the most maximums in a calendar year.

This demonstrates his ability as a brilliant player who holds a number of records. Including the highest single-player knock ever in ODI cricket.

The story is not over yet Sharma will be back in action soon after recovering from the hand injury and will look to break his own records.
