Rohit Sharma's landmark eyes as a unique record awaits Indians in all shapes



When India takes the West Indies into the third and final Twenty20 International (T20I) on Sunday, all eyes will be on stand-in-master Rohit Sharma, who will look to fasten a particular landmark in the shortest form.

Rohit, who broke a brilliant century in the second T20I, crossed Colin Munro of New Zealand to become the only batsman to hit the four centuries of the T20I.

The explosive batsman, who scored 2,203s run so far in the T20Is, is only 69 since the opening of a new New Zealander, Martin Guptill as the top T20Is Serbian.

Considering Rohit's current form – three tons in seven races – it will not be surprising to watch Rohit tighten the position between the batsmen at the shoortest during Chennai on Sunday.

If Mumba's bumman manages to overtake Guptill, it will be the first time an Indian will be at the top, in terms of current points, in all three international formats – Tests, ODIs and T20Is.

Legendary Sachin Tendulkar has been the top scorer in critical cricket since he passed by great modern Brian Lara and then was at the top of the ODI cricket tour as he passed the band of his neighbor Mohammed Azharuddin record in the early 2000s.

Since the start of the T20Is, no Indian batsman holds the pole position in terms of the runs that occurred so if Rohit managed to cross over Guptill, it would definitely mark a major achievement in Indian cricket and Chennai would hope to see it on Sunday.
