T20 Career

When it comes to T20, you can hardly find a complete opener than Rohit Sharma.

Rohit Sharma made his T20 debut for India against England in the 2007 ICC World T20 Championships but did not get an opportunity to bat. However, he did get an opportunity against South Africa in his second match and took it with both hands.

Rohit played and scored an unbeaten 50 as India won by 37 runs. In the semi-finals against Australia, Sharma made a small cameo at the end of the innings and scored 8* off 5 balls as India won by 15 runs.

In the finals, Rohit Sharma made another late cameo and made a crucial contribution of 30* from 15 balls. India won the final by 5 runs. In 2007, Sharma was used predominately as a middle-order batsman coming at number 7 or 8.

However, under MS Dhoni’s captainship, he has been promoted up the order to open the innings. This change affected not only his T20 career but his ODI career as well.

Today he has played 28 ICC T20 World Championship matches. He has scored 673 runs at an average of 24.03 runs and a strike rate of 109.95 runs. His high score of 79* came during the 2009-10 edition against Australia.

Overall, Rohit Sharma’s statistics speak up for his T20 career. In 111 matches, Rohit Sharma has scored 2864 runs.

Sharma shares the honor with his fellow teammate and captain Virat Kohli. While their race to the top spot will be the talk of the town, Rohit can be relieved by the fact that he is the only player to hit four T20 international centuries while also leading the list of the batsmen with the most sixes in T20.
