Cricket witnessed the emergence of one of the most energetic and exciting players. This man, Rohit Sharma, destroyed bowlers around the world with his aggressive batting style and incredible strokeplay.
This blog looks at his journey to the top of the game.
Rohit Gurunath Sharma, born April 30, 1987, in Mumbai, is India’s most successful current cricketer.
He amassed many records with a strong stance and an opening batsman mentality on the cricket pitch. He earned numerous accolades throughout his career as captain of the Indian national team.
A right-handed opening batsman who also bowls occasionally makes up part of a formidable opening pair with Shikhar Dhawan.
He has captained prolifically during his international career, winning the ICC World Cup 2015 against all odds and lifting the trophy, which garnered much positive media attention globally for his look of sheer joy.
He also plays for Mumbai Indians in domestic cricket and captains them to victory in that tournament five times.
The Rise to Fame of Rohit Sharma
Rohit is currently a man with an eye for excellence.
He has broken records and kept raising the bar in the sport of cricket. His passion for the game comes across so clearly when he hits a six or strikes a four, which makes him madly adored by many supporters.
He won the ICC Men’s ODI Cricketer of the Year award in 2019 and 2020, as well as being conferred with the prestigious Major Dhyan Chand Khel Ratna award in 2020 after he scored five centuries in 2019 World Cup.
Rohit is a supremely talented batsman who puts on the show with his creativity and sense of style.
Though Sharma has typically played as an opening batsman in limited-overs cricket, he mostly played as a middle-order batsman in Test cricket.
It’s no wonder that while Sharma is widely recognized as one of the format’s greatest batting talents, he’s also considered by many to be one of the best limited-overs players around today!
