Rohit Sharma Breaks MS Dhoni’s Record

Rohit shared a 139-run partnership for the first wicket with Yashasvi Jaiswal. This was the second consecutive century opening partnership between these two players.

In the first Test match against the West Indies, India registered a resounding victory and now in the second match also, Team India is looking in good shape. Not Rohit, where he played an inning of 80 runs, and because of that a big record of Mahendra Singh Dhoni has also been broken.

Rohit on Thursday surpassed Dhoni to become the fifth-highest run-scorer for India in international cricket. Rohit has so far scored 17298 runs in 443 matches in all formats, in which he has scored 44 centuries and 92 half-centuries.

On the other hand, Mahendra Singh Dhoni had scored 17092 runs in 523 international matches before retiring from cricket in 2020.

Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar tops the list in this regard, scoring 34,357 runs in 664 matches for India. In fact, he also holds the record for scoring the most runs in international cricket across all formats.

The current head coach of the Indian team, Rahul Dravid, has scored 24064 runs in 504 matches, while Virat Kohli has scored 25548 runs in 500 matches.

After Rohit’s dismissal, Virat Kohli remained unbeaten on 87 at the crease and he is moving towards his Test century. There has been a century partnership between him and Ravindra Jadeja and the Indian team is looking in a very strong position.

Former India captain Virat has also left behind 25534 runs of former South African batsman and all-rounder Jacques Kallis. Virat has now become the 5th highest run-scorer in international cricket.

Virat has currently scored 25,548 runs at an average of 53.67 and has 75 centuries and 132 half-centuries in his account. India had scored 288 runs at the loss of 4 wickets at the end of the first day’s play. Ravindra Jadeja is playing with Kohli scoring 36 runs off 84 balls.
