Hitman, he’s called and rightly so. In the last decade or so there is no one close to Rohit Sharma when it comes to hitting capabilities. When he gets going, he is definitely a nightmare for the bowlers. And what a match-winner Rohit Sharma has proved to be! Along with Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli, Sharma has won many matches for India.

If one decides to list down glorious achievements in Sharma’s career, his performance in the ICC 2019 Cricket World Cup will definitely be written in golden words.

His inning included 33 fours and 9 sixes! And what if I say that the entire Sri Lankan team were bowled out at a score less than Rohit’s score? Yes! Sri Lanka were bowled out at 251; thirteen runs short of that match’s top scorer, Rohit Sharma.

The journey for Rohit Sharma in tests has not been as easy as in ODIs. He had to wait a great deal of time to see himself in the test squad.

Rohit Sharma debuted against the West Indies on November 6, 2013, at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. And what a mighty debut it was. With all the top-order batsman falling prey to West Indies spin attack, Rohit took the fight head-on scoring 177 in his debut match. He along with Ravichandran Ashwin added 280 runs for the seventh wicket.

At one stage India were tottering at 156 for 6, credits to Sharma and Ashwin, India reached a mammoth total of 453. West Indies never really came back in the game. He was awarded the Man of the Match for his performance.

His second test century came in the very same series, but it was quite an emotional one. The match saw the God of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar bid adieu to international cricket. It brought generations together on the TV screens that day and thus Rohit’s century in that test was a very fine memory for him as well as all the Indians.

Highest Test score

Rohit scored 212 runs against South Africa in the 3rd test of South Africa’s tour of India played at Ranchi. This knock of 212 apparently happens to be his test score as of date.

Though he never got to bat in that game, the show was completely stolen by Yuvraj Singh who hit Stuart Broad for six sixes in an over. In the very next match against South Africa, Sharma scored an unbeaten 50 to steer India to 153.

A cricket enthusiast- is best what describes me! While Dhoni is the monument of interest for me in this sport, it is Harsha Bhogle who inspires me to just write or speak. You can discuss with me about PUBG as well!
