Rohit Sharma on Tuesday scored his 4th T20 international hundred and also overtook skipper Virat Kohli to become India's highest run-getter in T20 Internationals when he scored 11 runs during the T20 match of the three-match series against the West Indies at the Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Stadium in Lucknow.


It was 86th T20I for Rohit Sharma and he surpassed Kohli's tally of 2102 runs by hitting a six over long off in the 5th over. Earlier West Indies skipper Carlos Brathwaite won the toss and opted to bowl in the second Twenty20 International (T20I) against India here on Tuesday.
