Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli 27 runs away from creating partnership record

NEW DELHI: When India and West Indies step out on the field to play the final ODI of the three-match series, captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma would look to create another record for the Men in Blue.

The duo is just 27 runs away from completing 1,000 partnership runs against the Windies and if they manage to do so, they will become the first pair to achieve the feat against the Caribbean team in ODIs.

The 32-year-old Sharma will also eye another record as he needs 26 runs to go past Yuvraj Singh to become the seventh-highest Indian scorer in ODI cricket.

The left-handed Yuvraj ended his ODI career with 8,701 runs whereas Sharma currently has 8,676 runs.
