India skipper Rohit Sharma achieved the massive feat as he became the leading run-getter for India in the history of the ICC World Test Championship. The senior opener achieved the feat in the ongoing Test against West Indies.
India is taking on West Indies in the first game of the two-match series at Dominica. They were asked to field first and they did a great job with the ball as on account of Ravichandran Ashwin’s five-wicket haul they bundled out the opposition for just 150 runs.
With the bat, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma looked settled at the crease and along with debutant Yashasvi Jaiswal played excellently well. The duo stitched unbeaten 80 runs for the opening partnership before umpires called stumps on Day 1.
Rohit Sharma was unbeaten at 30 runs as he looked patient at the crease and batted beautifully. He batted for 65 balls and smashed 3 fours and 1 six in his innings. With his knock, he became the leading run-getter for India in the history of the WTC Final.
Rohit Sharma now has 1882 runs from 24 innings and also has an average of 52.27, which is the highest amongst the Indian batters. The right-hander in the World Test Championship has also smashed 6 hundreds and 4 half-centuries.
