Rohit Sharma made his debut for the Indian cricket team in 2007, but it was in 2013 that he cemented his place in the side as an opening batsman. Since then, he has been an integral part of the Indian team and has played a pivotal role in many of India’s victories in all formats of the game. What sets Rohit Sharma apart from other batsmen is his ability to score big hundreds. He has the highest individual score in One Day Internationals (ODIs), with a mammoth 264 runs against Sri Lanka in 2014. He is also the only player to have scored three double centuries in ODIs, a feat that speaks volumes about his batting prowess.

But Rohit Sharma’s impact on Indian cricket goes beyond just his individual performances. He has been a part of many successful Indian teams, including the ones that won the 2007 World Twenty20, the 2013 Champions Trophy, and the 2015 Border-Gavaskar Trophy. He was also the captain of the Indian team that won the 2018 Asia Cup.

Rohit Sharma’s batting style is a treat to watch. He has a unique ability to score runs all around the ground and is particularly lethal against spin bowling. His effortless strokeplay and impeccable timing have earned him the nickname “Hitman.”

Off the field, Rohit Sharma is known for his calm and composed demeanor. He is a natural leader and has often been touted as a potential captain of the Indian team. He has also been actively involved in philanthropic work and has been associated with various charitable organizations.
