On Wednesday, Rohit got off to a positive start, chasing 199 against Punjab Kings. The MI skipper had been in woeful form in the new season, managing just 80 runs in 4 matches as MI got off to a horror start, remaining winless after 4 games. Indian batter Rohit Sharma was short of just 25 runs when he started playing the innings on April 13 (Wednesday) against Punjab Kings. He surpassed the mark in just 16 balls with a six against pacer Kagiso Rabada.

Rohit Sharma’s teammate Virat Kohli was the first Indian to cross 10,000 T20 runs in IPL 2021. Virat became the fifth player in the world to achieve this feat and Aaron Finch was the next player before Rohit Sharma.
