India's limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma added another feather to his already-illustrious cap as he became only the 2nd Indian player after Virat Kohli to score 9,000 runs in T20 format during the ongoing fourth T20 international against England in Ahmedabad.

Rohit Sharma was 11 runs away from completing 9,000 runs across T20s and reached the milestone right in the first over of the match. Rohit hit a six and a boundary against Adil Rashid in the first over before Jofra Archer removed him for run-a-ball 12.

Chris Gayle (West Indies - 13296), Kieron Pollard (WI - 10370), Shoaib Malik (Pakistan - 9926), Brendon McCullum (New Zealand - 9922), Virat Kohli (9650 runs*), David Warner (Australia - 9451), Aaron Finch (AU - 9148) and AB de Villiers (South Africa - 9111) are also part of the list.

Rohit also became the first Indian player to complete 50 T20I sixes at home as well, after opening the innings with KL Rahul.

Rohit's ability to score runs quickly took many bowling line-ups by storm, while his knack of staying at the crease for long makes him even more lethal. Rohit is a serial record-breaker in limited-overs cricket. He is the only man to score three double hundreds in one-day internationals and holds the record for the highest individual score in the format. Back in 2014, Rohit had left the cricket world stunned with his 264 against Sri Lanka at the Eden Gardens.
