Indian captain, Rohit Sharma becomes the player with the most sixes in international cricket. He achieved the feat against Afghanistan during the ICC Cricket World Cup game at the Arun Jaitley stadium in Delhi, surpassing West Indian legend, Chris Gayle.

New Delhi: Indian captain Rohit Sharma etched his name in the annals of the sport's history by becoming the player with the most international sixes at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Wednesday.

The Indian cricket maestro achieved this remarkable feat during India's World Cup 2023 league match against Afghanistan, surpassing West Indian Chris Gayle's record of 553 sixes.

The record-breaking six came in the eighth over of the Indian innings when Rohit Sharma elegantly dispatched a delivery from the Afghan bowler Naveen-ul-Haq over the boundary ropes for his third six of the match.

With this shot, he surpassed Chris Gayle's long-standing record, solidifying his reputation as one of the most dominant and prolific batters in international cricket.

Rohit Sharma achieved this feat of hitting 554 sixes in 473 innings across formats. He is the fastest to hit 550 sixes in international cricket. 

He is also the fastest batter to hit 200, 400 and 500 sixes and the second fastest batter to hit 300 sixes only behind former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi, who took 295 innings of 288 matches in international cricket.

Rohit Sharma is currently playing a whirlwind knock against Afghanistan at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, where it is raining sixes and fours. He took over the Indian team's captaincy from Virat Kohli and now leads the country in all the three formats.

Rohit Sharma, who hails from Mumbai, was coached by Dinesh Lad.
