Rohit Sharma, the captain of Mumbai Indians and vice captain of India Cricket team is now set to create a new record. The MI Skipper who recently set his record of 200 IPL sixes is now on the way for a new record. Now Rohit, requires just 2 runs to join the 5,000-run club in the IPL. He will be the 3rd cricketer if he scores 2 runs to enter the 5000 runs club. Suresh Raina and Virat Kohli are the other two.

Though Mumbai Indian’s have started their season with a dull phase are looking back for a huge jump. The defending champions have just won 1 game in 3 which they have played. In this season, Sharma has scored 100 runs in this 3 matches. He has scored 12, 80 and 8 against CSK, KKR and RCB respectively. Mumbai Indians had a good chance to win against RCB but couldn’t do that.

We hope Rohit hits this milestone against KXIP in today’s match. Also he is also only 10 runs away from having scored 600 runs against KXIP, he already has crossed the 600 run mark against four different teams in the IPL.
