The India vs Afghanistan T20I series started off with the Men in Blue beating the visitors convincingly by 6 wickets in the first T20I. The Afghans could only manage to score 158 on a very good pitch at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. Even though it was the best of starts from India, a great half-century from Shivam Dube and decent cameos from Tilak Varma and Jitesh Sharma was enough to get them over the line. The Afghan bowlers were taken apart by Dube who did not only have a decent contribution with the ball, but scored a wonderful 60 from 40 balls that included 5 fours and 2 sixes.

The man we are talking about is Rohit Sharma, who might have not had the best game as a batter, but has got another T20I victory in his record as an Indian skipper. The Hitman is also one of the best T20 players in the world with over 3500 runs in T20I’s and 11000+ runs in T20’s overall. His captaincy record is amazing as well where out of 41 matches he has 39 victories to his name as the T20I skipper. Rohit has been one of the best batters in Indian cricket for a long time and will go down in history as the best opener for India in the modern era of cricket.

One game away from making history

Rohit is one of the most decorated t20 players in cricket right now with a phenomenal record. The Indian skipper is also only 1 game away from 150 T20I matches and is the first player to achieve this feat. He will also be the player to play the most T20I matches overtaking the likes of Ireland’s Paul Stirling by 15 games. Rohit will achieve this record in the 2nd T20I against Afghanistan which will be at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. This will be yet another record for the Indian opener which will be another achievement in his record books.

Rohit has been a major stalwart for the Indian side and has lived up to his talent. The story of this extremely gifted and dangerous player will always be remembered by the people, whether it is his Indian Premier League (IPL) titles or his magnificent double hundreds, he will go down as a legend in the game. The legacy of Rohit Sharma is really rich and it looks like it is going to continue even after the end of his career. He is definitely one of the best opening batters India has ever had in any format of the game.
