Rohit could become third player to score 1000 runs

The Indian skipper is one of the decorated players in the history of the Asia Cup as he is the fifth-highest scorer in the tournament. Rohit is currently on 883 runs in the tournament an needs another 117 runs to become just the third player to score 1000 runs in the tournament. Only Sanath Jayasuriya and Kumar Sangakkara have scored more than 1000 runs in the competition history.

Rohit could also become the highest-scorer in the tournament history, but will need 338 runs to that. India could play a maximum of six matches in the tournament and with Rohit opening the innings for India, this could not be ruled out. However, he needs to be at the best of his form to achieve that.

Player Mat Runs HS Ave SR 100 50
Sanath Jayasuriya (SL) 25 1220 130 53.04 102.52 6 3

Sachin Tendulkar’s record in sight

As things stand, Rohit requires just 89 more runs to go past Sachin Tendulkar for most runs by an Indian in the Asia Cup. Currently, Tendulkar’s tally reads 971 runs and is on course to be left behind by his fellow Mumbaikar. Interestingly for Rohit he has played the Asia cup in both T20 and ODI format, compared to Tendulkar who played the 50-over format.

Virat is the third-highest scorer for India in the Asia Cup with 766 runs, while anther former India captain MS Dhoni is on 690 runs. Shikhar Dhawan who is not part of the contingent for the Asia Cup is on 613 runs.
