This time the 14th edition of the Asia Cup will be played in ODI format. There is less than a month until the 2023 Asian Cup, which begins on August 31. With the Asian Cup, the Indian team is preparing for the year 2023, which will be played on home soil. At the same time, the Indian captain Rohit Sharma can set four major records through the Asian Cup.
The Indian captain has hit 9,837 runs in 237 innings and 244 ODIs so far. It only takes him 173 runs to complete the 10,000 runs he can do in the Asian Cup. Through the Asia Cup, Rohit Sharma will become the 15th cricketer to reach 10,000 runs in ODIs, while becoming the sixth player to do so for India. If Rohit reaches that number in the Asian Cup, he will become the fastest hitter to hit 10,000 runs in ODIs after Virat Kohli (213 games).
This tournament allows Rohit Sharma to become the first Indian player to score 1000 runs in the Asia Cup. The Indian captain needs 255 runs to reach this value. At the same time, the record for most runs for India in the Asian Cup is attributed to the name of Sachin Tendulkar, who scored 971 runs.
The record for most games for India at the Asian Cup is held by Sachin Tendulkar, who played 23 games. Rohit Sharma, who played the inaugural Asian Cup in 2008, has played 22 games in the tournament so far. He only needs to play two games to break veteran Tendulkar’s record.
Rohit Sharma is currently second when it comes to capping the maximum number of sixes in international cricket. So far he has hit 534 sixes. Chris Gayle tops the list with 553 sixes. Rohit Sharma needs just 20 sixes to get past West Indies’ Chris Gayle.
