Rohit Sharma Aiming To Break This MS Dhoni Batting Record In 2nd ODI Against Australia

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma will return to the playing XI in the second ODI in Vizag. He missed the first ODI due to family and personal reasons. Heading into the second ODI, Rohit is eyeing to get to a massive batting milestone and overtake MS Dhoni in the process.

India won the first ODI as they chased down the target of 189 inside 40 overs. KL Rahul (75*) and Ravindra Jadeja (45*) shared an unbeaten 108-run stand to take India home. Ishan Kishan who played in place of Rohit in the first ODIs could not make the most of his opportunity and scored just three off 8 balls.

Heading into the second ODI, Rohit Sharma is now just 79 runs away from overtaking MS Dhoni‘s tally of 17,092 runs and become the fifth-leading run scorer for the Men in Blue in international cricket. The Hitman has played a total of 438 matches for India to date across formats in which he has scored a total of 17,014 runs. Another 79 runs would take him above the former Indian skipper in terms of most-run getters for India in international cricket.
