Profile

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


Rohit had early ODI success when he toured Australia in 2008. In the first final of the Commonwealth Bank Series, he provided 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. In fact not long ago, Rohit had 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 break into the Test team, largely because of huge competition for places but 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. He, however, waned after that and consequently lost his place in the Test team but he remains a powerhouse as far as ODIs and T20s are concerned. He is one of three Indians to have scored a ton in all formats of the game.
