In a dazzling display of power hitting, Rohit Sharma and Rinku Singh carved their names into the record books during the third T20I against Afghanistan. The Indian duo not only conjured a match-winning partnership but also shattered records for both individual and team brilliance.

Facing a shaky start with 22 runs on the board after five overs, India needed a spark. Rohit and Rinku provided the inferno, stitching together a staggering 190 runs off just 95 balls – the highest fifth-wicket partnership in T20 Internationals. This whirlwind stand not only rescued India but also propelled them to a formidable total of 212/4.

Their pyrotechnics reached a crescendo in the final over, where they plundered a record-equaling 36 runs off Karim Janat. This feat matched the legendary six-hitting sprees of Yuvraj Singh and Kieron Pollard in T20Is. Rohit, leading the charge, notched his fifth T20I century, the most by any batsman globally, finishing with an unbeaten 121 off 69 balls. Rinku, playing the perfect foil, blasted a swashbuckling 69 off 39 deliveries, studded with six maximums.

This sensational batting performance not only sealed a comprehensive victory for India but also etched Rohit and Rinku’s names in T20I history. Their record-breaking partnership and individual brilliance ensured an unforgettable night for Indian cricket fans.
