Rohit overtakes Gambhir
Rohit Sharma has overtaken Gautam Gambhir in completing the century by hitting six most times. ‘Hitman’ did this charisma 3 times, while Gambhir has been able to do this only 2 times. Sachin Tendulkar is still on top, completing a century by hitting six sixes.
First century outside India for the Hitman!
He gets there with a monster six over long on!

Rishabh Pant also beat
Rishabh Pant, the current wicketkeeper-batsman of Team India, has also completed his century by hitting six sixes twice in Test cricket. It is very possible that young cricketer Pant can even overtake Rohit Sharma in future.
