In a historic moment, Indian captain Rohit Sharma made history on Monday by becoming the first player ever to hit 200 sixes in T20Is. This remarkable achievement took place during a crucial T20 World Cup Super 8 match against Australia in St Lucia.

Rohit's accomplishment truly sets him apart from his peers. The closest competitor to his record is New Zealand's Martin Guptill, who has 173 sixes to his credit. Despite Guptill's powerful hitting and consistent performance, Rohit's ability to consistently clear the boundary places him in a league of his own.

Following Guptill, England's dynamic wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler has hit 137 sixes. Known for his innovative shots and aggressive batting style, Buttler's tally, while impressive, still falls significantly short of Rohit's unprecedented figure.

Australia's Glenn Maxwell, renowned for his explosive batting and game-changing abilities, has accumulated 133 sixes. His unorthodox style and fearless approach have established him as a key player in the T20 format. Close behind Maxwell is West Indies' Nicholas Pooran, a rising star in international cricket, with 132 sixes. Pooran's flair and talent suggest a promising future, but he still has a considerable distance to cover to match Rohit's record-breaking feat.
