He is now the second highest six-hitter in international cricket.
Rohit has smashed 163 sixes in T20Is, 250 in ODIs and 64 in Test matches.
Indian skipper Rohit Sharma was in good knick against the West Indies in the fourth T20I, which India won by 59 runs on Saturday (August 6) to take an unassaible 3-1 lead in the five-match series. The Indian skipper scored 33 runs from just 16 balls with the help of 2 fours and 3 sixes. He was involved in a 53-run partnership with Suryakumar Yadav for the first wicket in just 4.4 overs. The opening duo of Rohit and Surya laid the foundation of the big total in Lauderhill, and India posted a total of 191 runs for the loss of five wickets.

In the fourth T20I, Rohit hammered three sixes, which has taken his tally of sixes in international cricket to 477, which is the second highest number of sixes hammered by any batter. The 35-year-old right-handed batter leapfrogged former Pakistani legendary all-rounder and captain Shahid Afridi to take the second spot. Only former West Indies captain and opening batter Chris Gayle is now ahead of Rohit in the list of batters with the most sixes in the international arena.
Rohit has 477 sixes to his name from 410 matches across three formats, while Afridi has smashed 476 sixes in total from 524 matches he played during his 22-year-long career at the highest level. The West Indies legend, Gayle, tops the list with 553 maximums from 483 matches.

The Indian skipper, who is also the leading run getter in the T20I format of the game, has scored a total of 163 sixes in 132 T20Is, 250 maximums in 233 ODIs and 64 in the 45 Test matches he has played so fmatches

Rohit is second in the list of batters with the most sixes in the shortest format of the game, which is topped by New Zealand opening batter Martin Guptill (170). He needs eight more big hits to overtake Guptill in the T20Is list, and with one more game to go against West Indies and then the Asia Cup T20 on the brink of starting, he is likely to take the numero uno spot in coming matches.
