Rohit Sharma became the first batsman to score four hundreds in the lowest format of international cricket, and therefore came to New Zealand’s Colin Munro, who scored three centuries.
Rohit Sharma Hit a 4Th T20 century : India Vs West Indies 2nd T20l in 2018
He had crossed the first-ever Virat Kohli, who made the most runs in T20I for India. His last century came back in July this year when he scored an unbeaten 100 against England in Bristol
Incidentally it was at this same match that he had crossed the 2000-run mark and was the fifth batsman in men’s cricket to do so.
Rohit failed in his favorite hunting ground in Kolkata, the first game to score only 6 runs in the Eden Gardens. But on Tuesday, they defeated West Indies bowlers around the park in the newly built stadium.
After playing in the first over of the innings, Rohit started the attack with Shikhar Dhawan, with the ease and comfort of the young West Indies bowlers, the fourth and sixes.
He remained unbeaten on 111 runs in 61 balls and hit 8 fours and 7 sixes as he powered India to finish 195/2 in 20 overs.

Rohit Sharma became a 2nd highest run scorer:-
He became the second Indian man and third Indian overall after women’s team star Mithali Raj and Kohli to score 2000 runs in the format.
Rohit is now the second highest run scorer with New Zealand’s Martin Guptill (2271), with an average of 33.89 in 86 T20I with 2203 runs. He left behind Pakistan’s Shoaib Malik (2190) and New Zealand’s Brendon McCullum (2140).
During his innings, Rohit gave himself the third highest in the list of most sixes in the innings. He equals Yuvraj Singh, who won twice (England v Durban, 2007 and Ahmedabad vs Pakistan, 2012).
Rohit in fact, holds the record with 10 sixes in an innings that he hit against Sri Lanka in Indore last year.
He is also India’s most prolific six hitter in T20Is. Rohit also went past New Zealand great Brendon McCullum on the list of most T20I sixes. Rohit now has 96 sixes as compared to McCullum’s 91 maximums.
