Rohit Sharma Profile

While his exploits in Test cricket leave a lot to be desired, there is no doubting Rohit Sharma’s ability as a batsman. He is the first player in ODI history to have scored multiple double hundreds, including a world record individual score of 264 against Sri Lanka in 2014, and that tells you what a talent he is.


After evolving as another batsman from the 'maidans' of Mumbai, Rohit had early ODI success when he toured Australia in 2008. In the first final of the Commonwealth Bank Series, he proved to be a perfect foil for the great Sachin Tendulkar as India claimed the match and eventually the best-of-three contest with another win in the next game. Rohit had earlier scored an important fifty in India’s win against South Africa in the 2007 World T20. The team under MS Dhoni had gone on to lift the trophy in the inaugural tournament.


Despite success in limited overs cricket, Rohit failed to get into the Test team, largely because of huge competition for places. He was even unlucky at one point in time when he injured himself in a practice session of the morning of the Test that he was supposed to make a debut in 2009. As fate would have it, Wriddhiman Saha took his place and Rohit had to wait a long time till he eventually broke through against the West Indies in 2013 in what was Tendulkar’s last international series. Rohit ended up having a whale of a time while batting with hundreds in the first two innings he played as India registered innings victories in two Tests. The move to open with him in the shorter formats of the game worked wonders for him as well as India. In 2013, he racked up more than 1,000 ODI runs. But his Test form dipped a bit and he lost his place.


Rohit was ruled out of cricket due to a finger injury but came back with a bang, hitting 264 against Sri Lanka in November 2014. In 2015, he was the second highest run-scorer for India in the World Cup. Just when it looked he would cement his place in the Test side after a good short run, another finger injury sidelined him during the New Zealand series at home. Sharma missed most of India's successful home season in 2016. He returned to cricket in 2017 and led Mumbai to their third Indian T20 league title in 6 years, something he will be proud of for a long time. 2018 was a solid year for him in the Blue jersey of India, he even successfully captained the country in the Asia Cup and the Nidahas Trophy. Runs in whites though are still what eludes him and he will hope he can become an all-format great for the country in the coming years.
