Rohit Sharma could topple Yuvraj Singh with this ODI feat
The opening batsman, who had a dream 2019 World Cup, can script a special feat for Team India.
Besides Rohit, left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav could also script a massive record later tonight.
Here we look at the same.
Rohit can surpass Yuvi in terms of career ODI runs
Rohit has already amassed 8,676 runs under his belt in 217 ODIs at an average of 48.74.
The celebrated cricketer has also amassed 27 centuries and 42 fifties.
Rohit can surpass Yuvraj Singh's career ODI runs tally by scoring another 26 runs tonight.
Yuvraj, who retired from international cricket recently, managed amassed 8,701 runs in 304 ODIs.
Kuldeep Yadav has been in good form of late
Meanwhile, spinner Kuldeep Yadav has been a revelation for India in the last few years.
The wrist-spinner has continued to make his presence felt.
He has three wickets so far in the ongoing ODI series.
Kuldeep will look to bowl his heart out once again.
The Indian cricketer has made a strong impact on the side and has become a valuable asset.
Kuldeep could overtake Shami with this special record
Kuldeep has picked up 96 wickets in just 53 ODIs.
He needs just four wickets to reach hundred ODI scalps.
If he achieves the feat tonight, then this will make him the fastest Indian to scale 100 wickets in ODI matches.
Currently, right-arm pacer Mohammed Shami holds the record.
Shami achieved the feat in 56 ODIs.
Rohit has the eighth highest ODI runs by Indian batsmen
In terms of most ODI runs by Indian cricketers, Rohit is currently eighth in the list. Sachin Tendulkar (18,426), Virat Kohli (11,406), Sourav Ganguly (11,363), Rahul Dravid (10,889), MS Dhoni (10,773), Mohammad Azharuddin (9,378) and Yuvi are ahead of him at the moment.
