I am the sort of person who is not satisfied (with what he has been doing), and I want to continue what I am doing, says India captain
New Delhi October 13 dmanewsdesk: After surpassing Chris Gayle’s record of most sixes in international cricket on Wednesday, India captain Rohit Sharma said he has taken some inspiration from the “Universe Boss” himself in his journey.
During his record-breaking 81-ball 131 against Afghanistan at the Ferozshah Kotla, Rohit hammered five sixes to reach 556 maximums across three formats, three more than the West Indian left-hander. Rohit reached the landmark in 453 matches, precisely 30 games less than Gayle.
“Universe Boss is Universe Boss. I have taken a leaf out of his book. Over the years, we have seen him, such a six-hitting machine he is wherever he plays. We wear the same jersey (No. 45). I am sure he is happy about it because jersey No. 45 has done it (breaking his record),” Rohit said in a video posted by the BCCI.
Rohit said a lot of work has gone into developing his six-hitting skills over the years. “When I started playing this game, I never thought I would be able to hit sixes, leave alone that many sixes. I am the sort of person who is not satisfied (with what he has been doing), and I want to continue what I am doing.”
