Rohit Sharma is one of the biggest names that India has produced in the game of cricket. He started his career as a middle-order batter and batted at No. 5 or 6. But a decision by MS Dhoni to promote Rohit at the top changed everything. Since then, Rohit has never looked back and climbed up the ladder of success.
Rohit made his international debut in June 2007 against Ireland but couldn’t bat. But he impressed everyone with a fighting half-century against South Africa in the 2007 T20 World Cup, which was a must-win game for India. However, since then, the time has changed, and Rohit has become one of the modern-day greats and is the backbone of Indian batting across formats, along with Virat Kohli.
Rohit is the only player with three ODI double centuries and the highest individual score of 264 runs in the 50-over format. Adding to that, he is the only player with four T20I hundreds, including the joint-fastest off 35 balls. He has achieved immense success and has also scored a number of hundreds across formats.

He followed it up by another hundred in his second game against the same opposition. Rohit’s highest score of 212 came against South Africa in 2019 at Ranchi.
