    Can Rohit Sharma break Shahid Afridi's record of 351 ODI sixes?

    Rohit Sharma has today hit his 200th six, in his 188th inning.

    Afridi hit 351 in 369 innings.

    Rohit is 31 1/2 yeard old. Is it possible for him to come close to or overtake Afridi?

    I don't think so. Rohit will play for 6 more years at best. India is playing much less ODIs these days. Also, you may never know when his form dips.

    300 six is possible.

    No. 350 sixes are too much. But he can cross 300.

    I hope its not the priority. Tendulkar wouod have hit 800 sixes in his ODI career if he went out there with the aim to have such a record. Aim is to score important runs and win matches for the team. This is just for fun. Hes already ahead at hitting rate wise.

    Has hit 178 sixes in his last 105 innings (since becoming an opener in 2013) and with each year, his six hitting rate got better. In AST 2 years, in 40 ODIs, it’s 85 sixes, and 52 sixes in last 22 matches. Going by that he could get there in another 75-80 ODIs which is another 40 months away.

    He will be around till 2023 WC in India, so 12000+ ODI runs, 45 100s and most sixes should be his target.

    He is among the best timer of ball. Gifted with hand-eye coordination. Among the best puller. Deserved to get a call back to test side.

    His name hitman is an appropriate one. If Virat is a Knight, a warrior who fights with immense work, Rohit is a like a skillful sharp shooter, a bowman. Why do all the work and fight, grinding out opponents, when you can just sit and take headshots.

    If he plays as many innings as Afridi he will get there

    Afridi
    369 innings 351 sixes - 0.95 sixes per innings
    Rohit
    187 innings 202 sixes - 1.08 sixes per innings

    He is going at a faster rate than Afridi in terms of innings. In terms of balls Afridi will remain unconquered as no team would allow someone to throw his wicket away carelessly for that long

    I disagree. He wouldn't have if he went out with that aim because no other Board would have given him as many chances as Afridi received.

    Him being Tendulkar arguably one of the most gifted batting talents ever seen, would have still managed to average a respectable 35 something an had a full career. But yea given the number of matches Afridi completely bottled because he couldn't control his instinct, no other board or captains would have shown as much patience.

    Afridi played cricket with the aim of hitting sixes only and he is still behind Rohit who's already made himself one of the best ever ODI openers during the course.

    Can't match Afridi's class in six hitting.

    You have to keep in mind that he won't play all his matches on tiny IND grounds with roads and 3rd grade bowling.

    We all know what he does in places like SA.

    What a joke. Rohit has hit many sixes in big Australian ground more easy than lala can ever dream of. His failures in SA and six hitting ability both are pretty different thing which you are for no reason trying to connect. Today's ground was big and he was still hitting big sixes which could have been six on any ground. I doubt you even saw it and start to talk crap about it.

    Afridi was highly overrated and was a better bowler than a batsman who only clicked once in a blue moon.All he knew was to seeing his bat and hoping he would get lucky and hit.

    Folks, I respect Rohit for his lazy elegance and the timing when he connects bat with the ball.

    But still, Afridi was a monster, he was ruling the world in six hitting even in the 90s. When it was still far too difficult.

    His sixes are monsterous. He hits some of the longest sixes compared to others. Only guys like Yuvraj , Dhoni can match those sixes. He relies purely on timing.

    Six hitting was not difficult. Not many wanted to play that way. once T20 started every goddamn guy started hitting sixes at will where Afridi couldn't do jack. Only difference is attitude.

    It doesn't matter how you start, what matters is how you end & Rohit's strike rate in last 10 overs in odis is around 270+ & difference between him and next best is way to big.
