Additionally, the 36-year-old cricketer distinguished himself as the first player to record ten fifty-plus scores in the continental cup. Surpassing the legendary Sachin Tendulkar, who boasts nine such scores, Rohit’s consistency and ability to shine on the grand stage set a new benchmark in the tournament’s history.

Moreover, Rohit Sharma’s remarkable achievement continued as he smashed his 250th six while opening the innings in One Day International (ODI) cricket. This remarkable milestone not only secured his position as the Indian record-holder but also ranked him third globally in this category.

During the match against Nepal, Rohit showcased his batting prowess, amassing 74 runs off 59 deliveries, while his opening partner, Gill, contributed an impressive 67 runs from 62 deliveries. This stellar performance followed a challenging encounter against Pakistan, where both openers faced pressure and struggled to make a substantial impact. However, their flawless display against Rohit Paudel’s team has undoubtedly boosted their confidence.
