Full list of Records Broken by Rohit Sharma During His Inning of 92 off 41 Against Australia in T20 World Cup 2024

“92 off 41 A Story of Vengeance: Streets Will Never Forget What Rohit Sharma Did to Australia in the T20 World Cup 2024”

In match no. 51 of the T20 World Cup 2024, Rohit Sharma played arguably the best innings of his career against Australia in a Super 8 game. In this match, Rohit came to the crease with a mission: the mission to get revenge, the mission to show Aussies their place, the mission to conquer the cricket world, the mission to keep 140 crores of hopes alive, and he succeeded in this mission. Rohit Sharma was playing against Australia in the T20 World Cup 2024, the same Australia team that had recently broken his dream of winning an ODI World Cup. So, this was the time for vengeance, and Rohit Sharma got his deserved vengeance in some style. 

Rohit smashed every Aussie bowler in every corner of the Darren Sammy Cricket Ground in Gros Islet, St. Lucia. He started with the ace bowler of Australia, Mitchell Starc, who has a reputation for delivering the most lethal bowling spells in the World Cup. But he would like to forget this match, as he was smashed for 29 runs in the second over of his spell, by Sharma. The next bowler in line to destroy was Pat Cummins, who took two hat tricks in the last two matches but finished this match with a bowling figure of 0/48 in 4 overs. 

Rohit Sharma scored the fastest fifty of the T20 World Cup 2024 and made arguably one of the best bowling attacks of the tournament toothless. This incredible inning by Rohit Sharma came to an end in the 12th over of India’s inning, but before his dismissal, Rohit broke numerous records in his 92 off 41 balls knock against Australia.

This is the second-highest individual score by any captain in T20 World Cups, only surpassed by Chris Gayle’s 98 in the 2010 T20 World Cup against India. 

Third-fastest fifty by an Indian in the T20 World Cup

Rohit Sharma became the third-fastest Indian to score a half-century in the T20 World Cup after reaching the milestone in just 19 balls against Australia in the India vs. Australia Super 8 game. The only two innings that were completed faster were Yuvraj’s 12-ball fifty against England in the 2007 T20 World Cup and KL Rahul’s 18-ball fifty against Scotland in the 2021 T20 World Cup.

Fourth Indian to register 19,000-plus international runs

Rohit became the fourth Indian to achieve this feat as he crossed the 19,000-run mark during his 92-run knock against Australia in the T20 World Cup 2024. Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, and Virat Kohli are the other Indian players who have reached this milestone.
