Indian cricket captain Rohit Sharma created a buzz on social media as he achieved a remarkable milestone during the ongoing Asia Cup 2023 clash against Sri Lanka. In a thrilling moment for cricket enthusiasts worldwide, Rohit joined the elite club of batters with 10,000 runs in One-Day Internationals (ODIs).

During the match against the Islanders, Rohit achieved this historic feat in a style that only he could master. It was the fifth ball of the seventh over when Kasun Rajitha, the Sri Lankan bowler, delivered a fuller-length delivery. Rohit, displaying his class and skill, extended his arms and effortlessly lofted the ball through the line, sending it soaring over the straight boundary for a massive six.

Second fastest to 10,000 ODI runs

Rohit’s journey to 10,000 ODI runs was swift, making him the second-fastest batter to reach this milestone, behind his fellow teammate Virat Kohli. Rohit achieved the feat in just 241 innings, surpassing the legendary Sachin Tendulkar, who took 259 innings to reach the same milestone. Kohli, who recently completed 13,000 runs in ODIs in the clash against Pakistan, leads the pack, having taken just 205 innings to amass 10,000 ODI runs.
