Rohit Sharma achieved a historic milestone in the second match against Afghanistan by becoming the first male cricketer to participate in 150 T20 Internationals on Sunday.

After a 14-month absence from the international T20 format, Rohit made his comeback during the initial T20I in Mohali, where he also captained the team. Despite a challenging day at the crease, with a run-out for a duck due to a misunderstanding with Shubman Gill, India secured a comfortable victory in the end.

Rohit Sharma achieved a significant world record in the match by becoming the first player to be involved in 100 victories in T20 Internationals. In terms of the highest number of appearances in T20Is, the Indian opener leads the list, with Ireland’s Paul Stirling following closely with 134 matches in his career. George Dockrell, another teammate from Ireland, holds the third position with 128 T20I appearances.

Paul Stirling’s career includes 134 matches, making him a prominent figure in T20 Internationals. George Dockrell, his Irish teammate, secures the third spot with 128 matches to his credit.

In the context of appearances for India in T20Is, Rohit Sharma leads the list, with Virat Kohli closely following with 116 matches. Kohli is also marking his comeback to the T20I side after a break of 14 months.

Hitman in T20Is

Rohit Sharma stands among the elite in the T20 format, boasting a career adorned with numerous records. Emerging onto the T20 International scene during India’s triumphant 2007 World Cup journey in South Africa, the Indian opener shares the top spot for centuries in the format, having scored four.

Additionally, Rohit holds the record for the highest number of sixes in T20 Internationals, tallying an impressive 182. He secures the second position in the list of highest run-scorers in the format with 3853 runs to his credit, with only Virat Kohli surpassing him in this regard.
