Mumbai: Indian opener Rohit Sharma is on the brink of clinching the 7th spot on the list of Indian batsmen with most runs in ODI cricket. India are scheduled to take on West Indies in the 3rd ODI of the 3-match series in Trinidad on Wednesday.

Rohit Sharma needs 26 runs to surpass World Cup-winning all-rounder Yuvraj Singh in the list. Currently, Rohit Sharma has gathered 8676 runs in 217 matches while Yuvraj Singh hung his boots with 8701 runs in 304 matches.

 

Sachin Tendulkar (18426), Virat Kohli (11406), Sourav Ganguly (11363), Rahul Dravid (10889), MS Dhoni (10773), Mohammad Azharuddin (9378), Yuvraj Singh (8701) are above Rohit Sharma on this elite list.

In the previous match, the Virat Kohli-Rohit Sharma duo registered a 50-run stand for the second wicket and in the process, moved past Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag to post the most number of 50-run stands for India in ODIs.

Post the match, skipper Kohli stated that since both Dhawan and Rohit had not got going, it became his responsibility to step up and score a century.

 

“Feels good to get a hundred when the team wanted me to get one. Shikhar and Rohit didn’t get a big one. One of the top three has always got the big one. A senior man had to step up and today was my opportunity to step up,” said Kohli.
