After three incredible matches, Team India is ready to face England in the fourth test on Friday. The fourth test will take place at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi. Rohit Sharma has a great chance to become the first captain to beat England under Ben Stokes.

But that will not be easy because India will be without their main bowler, Jasprit Bumrah. The ace pacer has been rested for the fourth test to manage his workload. So India will have to find a good bowler, or they can go with a four-spinner attack.

Meanwhile, the Indian captain Rohit Sharma, who smashed a brilliant century in the first innings of the third test, will eye some big records in the fourth test. He has a good chance in his hands to script history and create a new world record.

The first big record for Rohit is to complete 1000 runs against England in test cricket. The Indian captain is just 13 runs short of doing it. He has scored 987 runs in 12 matches at an average of 47, with three centuries and three half-centuries. Rohit has currently scored the third-most runs among active cricketers after Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara.

Apart from this, Rohit needs 23 more runs to complete 4000 test runs in his career. He has scored 3977 runs in 98 innings at an average of 45.19 with 11 centuries and 16 half-centuries. But there is a world record on the line as well. Notably, Rohit Sharma has hit the most sixes combined in all three formats of the game.

He just needs 7 more maximums to reach a massive figure of 600 international sixes. It has never been done before. The way he played in the third test makes it likely that he can hit seven sixes in the fourth game. Rohit has hit 593 sixes in 495 innings so far in international cricket.
