Unfortunately, Sharma’s innings was cut short due to an injury after the 10th over. However, his contribution, alongside brilliant bowling performances from the likes of Hardik Pandya (3/27) and Jasprit Bumrah (2/6), helped India cruise to an easy eight-wicket win.

Here’s a quick breakdown of Sharma’s achievements in the match:

600th six in international cricket (first player ever)
52 runs from 37 balls (140.54 strike rate)
4 fours & 3 sixes
The second player to score 4000+ runs across all formats (joining Virat Kohli)
Completed 4000 T20I runs
Joined the 1000-run club in the T20 World Cup (currently 3rd highest run-scorer)

Despite the injury scare, Rohit Sharma’s knock was a defining moment in the match and his cricketing career. Team India will hope for a speedy recovery as they continue their T20 World Cup campaign.
