Apart from the jersey number, both the opening batsmen also share other similarities. Both open the batting for their respective teams (Rohit for India, Gayle for West Indies). Rohit and Gayle are popular for their six hitting abilities.

The hitman and the Universe’s boss are the top batsmen who have struck most sixes in T20Is. Both Sharma and Gayle have scored 200s in ODIs (Rohit has 264 as his highest ODI score, while Gayle has 237 as his top score).

After getting knocked out of the 2019 World Cup, India will be hoping to address their middle-order woes as they face the Caribbeans for a three-match ODI series. Following the ODI series, the Men in Blue will also face the Caribbeans for a two-match Test series.
