Rohit Sharma enters the 400-club

This happened on the very first delivery of the third over bowled by left-arm pacer Sheldon Cotterell. The Windies pacer who had bowled a fuller outside off was dispatched into the fence effortlessly by the 'Hitman' which was also the first six of the contest. By the virtue of this big hit, the Indian limited-overs vice-captain brought up his 400th six in international cricket. Rohit is the only Indian to have entered the 400-club. Meanwhile, Sharma also is the third-highest six-hitter in international cricket. He is currently behind West Indies power-hitter Chris Gayle (534) and Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi (476). Apart from Rohit Sharma, former skipper, MS Dhoni is the other Indian with the most number of maximums in international cricket with 359 big hits to his name.
