In a groundbreaking announcement, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has declared that India Captain Rohit Sharma has etched his name in the cricketing annals by hitting the most sixes in the Men’s ODI World Cup. 

This remarkable milestone cements Rohit Sharma’s legacy as a powerhouse batsman and adds a new chapter to the thrilling narrative of the ongoing tournament.

Rohit Sharma: The Six-Hitting Maestro:

Indian captain Rohit Sharma has left an indelible mark on cricket history by becoming the first player to hit 50 sixes in the World Cup. 

Achieving this remarkable feat during the semifinal clash against New Zealand in Mumbai, the 36-year-old scored an impressive 47 runs from 29 balls, surpassing Chris Gayle’s record of 49 sixes in World Cups with a powerful pull shot off fast bowler Trent Boult.

A Journey of Electrifying Strikes:

Rohit Sharma’s journey to becoming the highest six-hitter in the Men’s ODI World Cup has been nothing short of electrifying. 

Each powerful strike has not only contributed to the team’s success but has also left an indelible mark on the cricketing landscape. Fans around the world have been treated to a display of sheer talent and batting mastery.

Semifinal Showcase of Sharma’s Dominance:

Throughout the tournament, Sharma has displayed exceptional form, particularly in the semifinal against New Zealand. He aggressively took on the bowlers, laying the foundation for a robust start for the Men in Blue with a dazzling array of fours and sixes. 

Despite falling just three runs short of a half-century, Sharma’s innings featured a memorable six off pacer Trent Boult in the fifth over, consolidating his position as the leading six-hitter in World Cup history.

Setting New Records:

Beyond eclipsing Gayle’s overall record, Sharma set a new benchmark for the most sixes in a single edition of the World Cup, reaching his 27th six. 

This accomplishment surpassed Gayle’s 2019 record of 26 sixes. Notably, Sharma had already exceeded Gayle’s record for the most sixes in international cricket during a match against Afghanistan earlier in the tournament. He hit four sixes, bringing his tournament total to an impressive 28. 

Following Sharma, Glenn Maxwell holds the second position as the second-most prolific six-hitter in the current World Cup with 22 sixes.
