Indian opener Rohit Sharma scored 63 in yesterday’s match against the West Indies. He topped 1,490 runs in 28 ODIs this year, including 7 centuries and 6 fifties. With this, all the one-day matches in 2019 have come to an end. In 2nd place is India skipper Virat Kohli (1,377 runs) and West Indies’ Shai Hope (1,345 runs).
Rohit Sharma has amassed a total of 2,442 runs this year, including three forms of international cricket (1490 in one-day, 556 in Tests and 396 in 20 overs).

West Indies player Shai Hope has added 1,345 runs this year. West Indies player Brian Lara (1,349 in 1993) would have broken the record for most runs in a single day in a day’s match.
Shai Hope surpassed 3 thousand runs (67 innings) in one-day cricket yesterday. He became the 2nd player to reach this milestone. South Africa’s Amla 57 innings holds the record for this goal.
