Rohit Sharma looking to get past another landmark in the second T20


Indian stand-in captain Rohit Sharma who surpassed skipper Virat Kohli as the highest runs scorer for India in T20 internationals is looking to break another record ahead of 2nd T20 against Bangladesh. 

Rohit now needs just 72 runs to go past Suresh Raina as the second-highest scorer for India in T20s. India was handed a shock defeat in the first T20 in Delhi and an innings for 72 or above will not just give Rohit the record but also boost India's chances of victory immensely. 

Regular skipper Virat Kohli leads the chart with 8556 runs while Suresh Raina currently takes the second spot with 8392 runs. Rohit currently is on the third spot with 8321 runs. 

Meanwhile speaking to media ahead of the game in Rajkot, spinner Yuzvendra Chahal said that there was no pressure on India and that they are feeling confident of themselves. 

"There is no pressure. You know there are three matches and it’s a bilateral series, not a knockout format," said Chahal in a press conference in Rajkot.

India will take on an charged up Bangladesh at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot on Thursday.
