Indian batting will have to put their best foot forward while tackling the lethal in-dippers from Mitchell Starc when they face Australia in the series-deciding third ODI in Chennai on Wednesday (March 22). India vs Australia Final: Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli will create Historic World Record.
Greatest players in Indian cricket history, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have done wonders with the bat in the Indian team. In the ODI series against Australia, Rohit and Kohli haven’t had the best of outings, failing to score many runs on the board. However, they will have a chance to reach a historic milestone in the third ODI against the Aussies.
As a pair, Rohit-Kohli remains just two runs shy of completing 5000 runs in the 50-over format of international cricket. At present, Rohit and Kohli have put together 4998 runs on the board in ODI cricket. If they add two more runs in the Chennai encounter, they will go on to smash a ‘world record’ by becoming the fastest pair in the history of the game to score 5000 runs in the 50-over format.
The Indian pair has taken a total of 85 innings to aggregate 4998 runs in ODIs so far, averaging 62.47. En route to the figure, they have scored a total of 18 centuries and 15 half-centuries cumulatively. The record of the fastest 5000 runs in ODI cricket as a pair is currently held by West Indies’ Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes who had reached the landmark in 97 innings.
