Senior opener Rohit Sharma on Thursday became the second Indian to complete 9000 runs in T20 cricket after skipper Virat Kohli.

Rohit achieved the feat when he drove spinner Adil Rashid for a single during the fourth T20 International against England at the Narendra Modi Stadium.

He scored 12 runs in Thursday’s match. He was dismissed by pacer Jofra Archer.

Across T20s, he has amassed 9001 runs from 342 matches with a strike rate of 133.36. He has to his credit six centuries and 63 fifties in the game’s shortest format. Rohit also has over 500 runs ti his name in the IPL.

Last January, Rohit became the third fastest player in the world to reach 9000 runs in One-day Internationals.
