5 records broken by Rohit Sharma in 2018
#2 Fastest to 200 ODI sixes
Rohit Sharma is fondly called as "Hitman" by his fans for his incredible hitting. When he is in flow, no ground is big enough to stop him.
He smashed 39 sixes in ODIs in 2018, which was easily the most by anyone. Bairstow took the second place with 31 sixes as Rohit became only the second Indian after MS Dhoni to smash 200 sixes in ODIs.
Currently he has 202 sixes, 16 behind Dhoni, who holds the Indian record. When he reached 200 sixes, he became the fastest to that landmark. The dashing opener broke Shahid Afridi’s all time record by reaching the landmark in 187 innings, whereas Afridi got to the mark in 195 innings. Rohit also climbed to 6th place in the all time six-hitter's list.
