Rohit Sharma cracked his fourth T20I ton when he scored 111* against West Indies at Lucknow. The ton helped India wrap up the T20I series 3-0.

Rohit Sharma, thus, became the first player to crack four tons in T20Is. Rohit has been rewriting record books since he was asked to open in 2013. And he is not letting any opportunity to have a go at the opposition bowlers.So, which of his four T20I tons is the best till date?

Crickex analyses Rohit Sharma’s T20I tons to decide the best.

Rohit Sharma’s 111* vs WI at Lucknow in 2018

Rohit Sharma’s fortunes have changed since opening the batting
This knock came against a low-ranked team West Indies who are the current World T20 champions. But the Windies, who are missing their star players, played like novices in the limited-overs series, especially the T20Is, against India. And hence, this T20I ton of Rohit would not rank high in his top T20I knocks due to the quality of the opposition. Nevertheless, Rohit was a treat to watch with his big hitting. Rohit slammed 61-ball 111* with 8 fours and 7 sixes.

100* vs Eng at Bristol in 2018

Rohit Sharma steered India to T20I series triumph in England in 2018 with his 100* at Bristol.
This was the most decisive T20I ton from Rohit Sharma’s bat as it came in the decider with the series levelled 1-1 against England. India were chasing a big target of 199 and Rohit anchored the chase with 100* off 56 balls with 11 fours and 5 sixes. He was helped by cameos from Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya as India chased down the target comfortably. Rohit showed great maturity to play a knock of value when the team needed it most and steered India to a memorable series win in England.

118 vs Sri Lanka at Indore in 2017

Rohit Sharma has always fancied the Sri Lankan bowling attack.
It was the most destructive T20I ton from Rohit Sharma’s bat as he was dismissed in the 13th over, and looked in danger to score a double ton in T20Is. He was in a punishing mood as he slammed 12 fours and 10 sixes in his 43-ball knock at a strike rate of 274.41. His opening partner KL Rahul’s brilliant knock of 89 was overshadowed by Rohit’s blitzkrieg.

106 vs SA at Dharamsala in 2015


Rohit Sharma’s first T20I ton came in a losing cause.
It was the first T20I ton of Rohit Sharma and he had to painfully see it going in vain as India lost the match by 7 wickets. JP Duminy spoiled India’s party with a knock of 34-ball 68*. However, as long as Rohit was in the crease, India looked to score beyond 220, but his dismissal in 16th over saw India settling for 200/3. India fell 20 runs short on a flat wicket. Rohit slammed 12 fours and 5 sixes in his 66-ball knock.

Verdict
Rohit Sharma’s 100 against England at Bristol was his best T20I ton so far as it came in a pressure game in a virtual final. He held his calm and composure to steer India to a T20I series win against England in England in 2018. And that was the only triumph for India in a disappointing tour of England.

Every 100 is equally valuable.
100 in a T20 is a very rare phenomenon.
Not everyone can do.
You need special skills no matter who the opposition is.
I respect all 100s in T20.
Any 100 scored in batting second facing huge target is more valuable in general than playing as opener batting first and getting a 100.
Coughsachincough. ;)

Rohit and Gayle special player in crickets shortest format t20 or t20I { t10 not yet popular }

i think Rohit is best in this regard with 10 century
in twenty 20 cricket-- 6 in t20 and 4 in t20 international. How many he scored in second innings { bats second } i do not know.

yes but in t20i his knock of 100* vs england @ Bristol off 56 balls came while he bats second vs better english bowling.

salute to rohit because both root {90*} and Virat {90*} far behind than Rohit and Gayle { 23 century --only 2 in t20I }(Gayle 892 sixes in t20)

i think Chris Gayle Innings vs england bats second was far more better than any player 48 ball 100* off 11 sixes @Bombay,india
