‘I kind of like Hitman a lot’ – Rohit Sharma

On Sunday Rohit Sharma made his fifth hundred in T20 cricket, the most by an Asian batsman, his unbeaten 100 helping India seal a 2-1 series win against England.

It was also Rohit’s third century in T20Is – New Zealand batsman Colin Munro is the only other player with as many. Rohit could have achieved the feat a week earlier, but fell short by three runs in the first match of India’s UK trip, against Ireland in Malahide.

How does he do it? Dinesh Karthik, Rohit’s India team-mate, tried to find out in a bcci.tv video chat after the victory in Bristol.

On holding the record for the most T20I centuries, with Munro

It feels good to win the series first, that was the only thing that was playing in my mind. We lost the last game, and it was a decider. The only thing I was thinking was about how we can pull off this victory as a unit. Personal, individual milestones will happen along the way, but I was not at all thinking about all of that. It was important that once I got off to a good start, I was only thinking about how we can finish off the game. That was the only thing that was playing in my mind because it was an important game for us to win and build those partnerships in the middle.
