Rohit Sharma Is Set To Achieve A Huge Milestone In The Fourth Test

India’s star opener Rohit Sharma is one of the most destructive batsmen around the world right now. He has given many top-notch performances in all three formats of the game. He is fondly called ‘Hitman’ for his aggressive batting performances and his ability to hit stunning sixes out of the ground. Over the years, Rohit Sharma has achieved many milestones and has emerged as a consistent run-scorer across formats.

Rohit has looked like India’s best batsman in the ongoing Test series against England. So far, he has displayed solid defense and sturdy strokes while tackling the English seamers in tricky conditions. He has registered two 50+ scores in the 5-match Test series.

Rohit would want to continue with his dynamic form in the fourth Test at the Kennington Oval, which will kickstart from today. Meanwhile, ahead of the 4th Test match at Oval, the 33-year-old is just 22 runs away from completing 15,000 runs in international cricket. So far, he has aggregated 14,978 runs from 380 international games at 44.18. The star cricketer can become the only 8th cricketer from India to achieve the landmark.

Rohit will join other cricketers on the elite list from India are:

1. Sachin Tendulkar

2. Rahul Dravid

3. Virat Kohli

4. Sourav Ganguly

5. MS Dhoni

6. Virender Sehwag

7. Mohd Azharuddin

Apart from this, Rohit is also set to complete 3000 test runs. So far, he has racked up 2,909 runs from 42 Tests at an average of 46.17, including 7 centuries and 14 half-centuries. He only needs 91 more runs to complete 3000 runs in Test format.

He will also be the first one to reach the 1,500-run mark as an Indian opener. He is presently the 3rd-highest run-scorer in the ongoing World Test Championship with 230 runs.
