India cruised to a victory in the second T20I in Nagpur to level terms in the three-match series after losing the opening match. Reduced to 8 overs due to rain, Rohit Sharma played a captain’s stroke scoring 46 FAST runs from 20 deliveries to secure a victory for the Men in Blue.

Echoing the same lines, opposing skipper Aaron Finch praised the Indian captain and also applauded Axar Patel for his brilliant spell.

Rohit Sharma breaks Martin Guptill’s record for plus sixes at T20 Internationals

Speaking at the post-match ceremony, Aaron Finch said: “You probably plan on a 5-overs game and then a bit more. Rohit played wonderfully and two overs from Axar made the difference. Wade is a quiet customer in the back and has become the role of that finisher. Zampa was also good.”

Rohit Sharma became the batsman with the most sixes in T20I. The 34-year-old achieved the milestone in India’s second T20I against Australia at the VCA Stadium in Nagpur. The 34-year-old overtook New Zealander Martin Guptill to become the six-hit leader in international cricket’s shortest format. Before the second T20I, Nagpur-born Rohit was level with Guptill at 172 sixes.

Rohit Sharma batted in his own world as the wickets fell around him. Matthew Wade’s 43 from 20 balls took Australia to a score of 90/5 in a match that was reduced to eight overs a side due to a two-hour delay caused by a wet pitch.

Rohit responded by scoring an unbeaten 46 from 20 balls and leading the Indian chase with brief cameos from KL Rahul, Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya. Dinesh Karthik finished the match hitting a six and a four on the first two balls of the final over, which were the only ones he faced in the entire match. The three match series is now level 1-1.
