Stats highlights from the second T20I in Lucknow:
4 Hundreds for Rohit Sharma in T20 Internationals – the most by any player in this format. He went past the record of three by New Zealand’s Colin Munro. Overall, it is the seventh T20I hundred for India with KL Rahul (2) and Suresh Raina scoring the others. It was his 19th 50-plus score in T20Is making him go past Virat Kohli’s previous record of 18 fifty plus scores.
111* by Rohit is the second highest individual score for India in T20 Internationals after his own 118 against Sri Lanka in Indore last December. It is the third highest individual score against Windies in T20Is after 119 by Faf du Plessis and 114* by Morne van Vyk, both coming in 2015.

2 Rohit became the second batsman to score two T20I centuries in the same calendar year. Before today, he scored an unbeaten 100 in a run chase against England in Bristol in July. The only other batsman to do so was Colin Munro, who achieved the feat in 2017.
2203 Runs scored by Rohit in his T20 International career – second most by any player in the format after Martin Guptill’s 2271 runs. He was fifth in the leading run-getters list at the start of the innings and went past Shoaib Malik (2190), Brendon McCullum (2140) and Kohli (2102) during the course of the innings.
Most runs in T20Is
556 Runs scored by Rohit in T20 Internationals in 2018 – the fourth player to do this year after Fakhar Zaman (576 runs), Babar Azam (563) and Colin Munro (500). Rohit needs 86 more runs to go past Kohli’s record of most T20I runs in a calendar year – 641 runs in 2016 – in a maximum of four innings.
1268 Partnership runs between Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan in 39 innings in T20 Internationals. They became the leading pair in T20Is eclipsing David Warner and Shane Watson, who aggregated 1154 runs from 37 partnerships.

3 Rohit and Dhawan became the fifth pair to aggregate three century partnerships in T20 Internationals. They emulated Warner – Watson, Martin Guptill – Kane Williamson, Guptill – Munro and Rohit – Kohli pairs in doing so. It was the eighth 100-plus stand Rohit was involved in T20Is which makes him go past seven instances each by Guptill and Alex Hales.
