Rohit Sharma is now only the fourth batter to enter the elite club of 6000 IPL runs after Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, skipper of Punjab Kings, and Delhi Capitals captain David Warner. Mumbai Indians and India skipper Rohit Sharma reached the 6000-run mark in the Indian Premier League during the 25th match of IPL 2023 against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

Rohit took 227 innings to reach the mark. Warner took 165 innings, while Kohli and Dhawan had taken 188 and 199 respectively to achieve the same. Rohit got to the milestone with two back-to-back boundaries. The first one over the short fine, the second through backward square leg – off the bowling of spinner Washington Sundar. Incidentally, the delivery that followed also went for four runs. He was later dismissed by T. Natarajan for 28.

Rohit now has 6014 IPL runs to his name from 231 matches with one century and 41 half-centuries. Former RCB captain Virat Kohli leads the chart with 6844 runs in 228 matches. He also made five hundred and 47 fifties. Punjab Kings skipper Shikhar Dhawan features second on the list having scored 6477 runs in 210 matches followed by Delhi Capitals captain David Warner (6109 runs in 167 games).

Rohit’s Mumbai hasn’t had the brightest of starts this season, losing two and winning as many to stay at the bottom half of the table.
