Rohit Sharma now joins Virat Kohli achieving 10,000 T20 Runs


Rohit Sharma became the second Indian hitter to achieve 10,000 T20 runs on the 13th of April. In the ongoing IPL 2022 season, the Mumbai Indians (MI) captain attained a major milestone during his team's Match 23 match versus Punjab Kings (PBKS). The skipper hit a six off Kagiso Rabada's bowling to complete the remarkable accomplishment. However, Sharma was out the very next delivery when he got a big top-edge to Vaibhav Arora at short fine leg. Virat Kohli is the only other Indian batsman who has reached this milestone.

The MI captain smashed three fours and two sixes in 17 balls to score 28 runs.

Experts and supporters consider the 34-year-old to be one of the best batsmen in T20 cricket. In 2007, Sharma became the first Indian to score a century in the format, in his sole game for Mumbai. This milestone happened in the inaugural edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy.

Sharma is also the joint-fastest centurion in T20Is (35 balls) and owns the record for most tonnes in T20Is (4).

Additionally, Sharma has the most tonnes in T20Is (4) and is also the joint-fastest centurion in the format (35 balls).

With 427 maximums, he also leads the Indians in the six-hitting statistics in T20 format.

With almost 5700 runs, including a century and 40 half-centuries, the Team India captain is also third all-time among IPL run scorers.

On the other hand, Mumbai Indians were defeated for the fifth time in a row in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 encounter against Punjab Kings (PBKS) on Wednesday.

Sharma commented that it is difficult to say whether there are any drawbacks, but he thinks they played well and came close to winning. A few of run-outs didn't help their cause. They were cruising along at one point, but they couldn't keep their cool, and kudos to PBKS for bowling brilliantly in the second half.

He also mentioned that they are attempting to experiment with a new cognitive process, but it's not going well. But he doesn’t want to take credit away from the players who performed admirably today, and Punjab did just that. He admitted that they aren't playing excellent cricket; they need to learn how to read situations and respond appropriately.
