4th Test Day 3: Rohit Sharma Becomes 6th Indian Batter to Score 17000 Runs in International Cricket

Ahmedabad: With a knock of 35 runs in the first innings of the fourth Test against Australia, India skipper Rohit Sharma became the sixth Indian batter to complete 17,000 runs in international cricket.

Rohit started to bat on Saturday morning with 17 runs to his name. By scoring four more runs in the morning session of day three’s play, he completed 17,000 runs in international cricket.

With it he has reached the elite group of Indian batters Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, and Mahendra Singh Dhoni to get past 17,000 runs in international cricket.

Rohit made his international debut for India against Ireland in June 2007 and has since played in a total of 48 Tests, 241 ODIs, and 148 T20I matches.

He is also the only cricketer in the world to have scored three double-hundreds in ODIs.

India have already retained Border-Gavaskar Trophy with victories in Nagpur and New Delhi but would need a win in Ahmedabad after the loss in Indore to get into World Test Championship final, to be held at The Oval from June 7-11.
