People on Twitter had some great reactions when Rohit Sharma reached 10,000 runs in his ODI cricket career with a stunning straight drive. Rohit and Shubman Gill had a strong start in their match against Sri Lanka, reaching 80 runs without losing any wickets in 11 overs. While Gill started aggressively, Rohit Sharma took control of the game in his own style, eventually crossing the 10,000-run mark.
To achieve this milestone, Rohit needed just 22 more runs. In the seventh over, facing Kasun Rajitha, he played a perfect lofted straight drive that sailed over the bowler’s head and straight to the boundary. It was a fantastic shot that everyone will remember for a long time.
Rohit Sharma became the sixth Indian player to reach 10,000 runs in ODIs and did it in the second-fastest number of innings, with only Virat Kohli being faster. After reaching this milestone, Rohit continued to play aggressively, hitting four boundaries in an over from Dasun Shanaka and completing his 51st ODI half-century in just 44 balls. Twitter users were delighted by his performance and the stunning shot he played to reach 10,000 runs.
