Rohit Sharma Profile

A spectator's delight when in full flow, unlike most others, Rohit Sharma is blessed with the ability to often time his shots a second or two late and still execute them to perfection. Experts and commentators have frequently associated the term 'lazy elegance' with his style of batting.

Rohit confidently came off the blocks to aid India's success at the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 in 2007. The promising youngster showed early signs of maturity in the 2008 CB Series in Australia where he scored a crucial 66 in the first final at the SCG alongside Sachin Tendulkar to see India through. Hyderabad then picked him in the maiden Indian T20 League season, and it turned out to be a successful outing for Rohit as he scored 404 runs, including four fifties. The following edition, he also bagged a hat-trick, displaying his all-round abilities. It took him long but an ODI century finally came in 2010, against Zimbabwe in a tri-series in Bulawayo. He then converted it into back-to-back hundreds against Sri Lanka at the same venue.
He was later signed by Mumbai, where his form continued. Last ball finishes and a century were some of the highlights of the 2012 season.

In spite of all these heroics, Rohit's batting in domestic cricket didn't quite translate at the national level, which put his place in the side under immense scrutiny. A last-minute freak injury in 2010 deferred him his maiden Test cap, and thereafter, Rohit remained on the fringes. But, ODI form blossomed in the series against West Indies at home (Man of the Series) and away. Later, he toured the West Indies as part of India A, and surprisingly came good with the ball as well. A recall to the ODI series against Sri Lanka followed, where Rohit hit his lowest ebb, averaging just about 13 with single digit scores, most of them being ducks. Owing to inconsistency, Rohit was eventually left out of the 2011 World Cup squad. However, the selectors persisted with him for the 2012 World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka despite receiving a lot of flak.

The roller-coaster career took another turn when he was promoted to open the batting in ODIs in the home series against England in early 2013. Maturity took centre stage and he finally did justice to his talent with consistent performances and sealed his spot as an opener in the limited overs format. Taking over the reins as captain from Ricky Ponting, Rohit Sharma led the Mumbai franchise to their first Indian T20 League title in 2013 showing tremendous mental poise as a skipper. A stupendous ODI series against Australia later that year saw him add another feather to his cap as he became just the third batsman to score a double century in the history of the ODIs. Hard work paid off as he was finally handed a Test debut against West Indies. The juggernaut didn't stop as he scored twin centuries in the series, bagging the Man of the Series award in Tendulkar's farewell Test series. The ODI series against Sri Lanka in 2014 helped him reach yet another double century, the first batsman to score twin 200s in ODIs and also registering the highest ever ODI score till then.
