On September 12, India’s captain Rohit Sharma accomplished a significant milestone in his One Day International (ODI) career, becoming the sixth Indian batter and the fifteenth overall to reach the illustrious 10,000-run mark in ODIs. Rohit’s remarkable achievement took place during India’s Asia Cup Super 4 encounter against Sri Lanka.
Rohit Sharma reached this significant milestone in a truly memorable fashion. He struck a six off the bowling of Sri Lanka’s Kasun Rajitha, crossing the 10,000-run threshold in the seventh over of the innings. It’s worth noting that this milestone comes just a day after Virat Kohli, Rohit’s teammate and one of the world’s premier batters, became the fastest batter in the history of ODI cricket to surpass the remarkable 13,000-run milestone, achieving this feat in a record-breaking 267 innings.
2nd Fastest 10000 Runs in ODI
Rohit Sharma’s record of achieving 10,000 runs in 241 innings is impressive, as he is the second-fastest batsman in One Day Internationals (ODIs) to do so. Virat Kohli completed the feat in only 205 innings. As part of an illustrious group of Indian cricketers, Rohit Sharma has cemented his place among the all-time greats in ODI cricket. The list of Indian batters who have crossed the 10,000-run mark in ODIs is a testament to the rich batting tradition of Indian cricket:
Indian Batsman with 10000 ODI Runs
|Virat Kohli||13026 Runs|
|Sourav Ganguly||11363 Runs|
|Rahul Dravid||10889 Runs|
|MS Dhoni||10773 Runs|
Rohit Sharma’s record of three double century in One Day Internationals (ODIs) attests to his exceptional batting talent and ability to dominate opposing bowling attacks like few others in the game’s history. His record-breaking 264-run performance against Sri Lanka in November 2014 at Eden Gardens is one of the most famous and unforgettable moments in cricket history. With 30 ODI centuries, Rohit is tied for third with former Australia captain Ricky Ponting in terms of most ODI hundreds.
