Rohit Sharma percolates batting talent: the ability to find the gaps, malleable wrists, and those heaves over midwicket. However, a lot of cricket experts questioned his commitment and he himself was the one to be blamed for. He made his debut in 2007 but was in and out of the side of the national team for the next six years. His fortunes changed after he was asked to open the innings with Shikhar Dhawan. He scored runs at will in the ICC Champions trophy and followed it up in the bilateral series against Australia. He scored an ODI double hundred in that series and finally fixed his position in the national team. After such an amazing performances in ODI’s, he was finally given a test cap after representing India in over 100 ODI’s. He scored centuries in both of his first innings. In 2014, when Sri Lanka toured India, he became the first batsman in the history of ODI cricket to hit two ODI double-hundreds, after he smashed the record for the highest score with 264 at the Eden Gardens.
Then came the ICC 2015 Cricket World Cup and Rohit was India's second highest run-scorer, which included a match-winning 137 against Bangladesh in the quarter-finals, further cementing his place in the top order. He has a great home season in 2016 and 2017 and he also became one of the few players who scored more than 1000 ODI runs this year. He was also appointed as the vice-captain of the Indian cricket team and after Virat Kohli has opted for a break from the upcoming Sri Lanka series, he is all set to make his debut as a captain of the ODI team in the upcoming series against Sri Lanka. He has already proved his mettle as a captain by becoming the only captain who has lead his side to lift the coveted IPL trophy thrice.
In IPL, after representing Deccan Chargers for the first three seasons, he was roped in by Mumbai Indians in 2011 and he was made the captain in 2012. He added another feather to his illustrious career after he led Mumbai Indians to life the coveted trophy not once but thrice. His innings in the 2015 IPL final and batting throughout all the edition of IPL was key to whichever side he played in the tournament.
