When he came onto the Indian cricket team circuit, he was dubbed Mr.Talent. Later on, he became the Hitman. As time wore on, he became the best captain in the country and he also gave many people a run for their money. It required the genius of MS Dhoni to forge Talent into Hitman. Rohit Gurunath Sharma is simply the greatest player at the top of the order in the Indian cricket team. Prior to 2013, Rohit was a precarious talent but he would increase the sadness of an Indian fan. He would get starts but fail to convert them.

But, in 2013, promoted to open the innings, Rohit Sharma became the epitome of brilliance and aggression. He has three double hundreds in ODIs and four Twenty20 International tons. He is the leading six-hitter for India in ODIs and T20Is. At the top, his appetite for big scores and his astuteness as a leader has boosted India tremendously. India has been blessed by the brilliance of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in batting ever since 2013. While Kohli cuts opposition down to size with his artistry, Rohit bulldozes the opponents with his aggressive batting.

When did Rohit Sharma make his international debut?

Rohit Sharma made his T20I debut during the World T20 2007 in South Africa against the hosts. In the same year, he made his ODI debut in Belfast against Ireland. Rohit had to wait six years for his Test debut, which he did against the West Indies in 2013.

Rohit Sharma Stats in International cricket

Rohit Sharma is on the cusp of reaching 10,000 runs in ODI cricket. He is already the leading six-hitter in the world, with over 400 sixes. But, Rohit has revolutionized his batting in ODIs. In 2014, he created a world record when he blasted 264, the highest individual score in the history of ODI cricket. Not content with just one hundred, Rohit actually has three. In 2013, when Rohit came up to open the batting, he smashed 209 against Australia in Bangalore. The knock included 16 sixes and it propelled Rohit Sharma into superstardom.

In 2017, he scored his third double ton when he scored 208* against Sri Lanka in Mohali. In Twenty20 Internationals, he has the record for the most tons as well as sixes. Rohit also has scored the joint-fastest T20I ton off just 35 balls which he achieved against Sri Lanka. Apart from that, Rohit is the only batsman in history to have over 100 sixes combined in all formats against Australia.

In the 2019 World Cup, Rohit Sharma blasted five centuries and ended the tournament with 648 runs. In the space of two tournaments, Rohit Sharma equaled the record of Sachin Tendulkar who hit six centuries. Rohit hit one against Bangladesh in 2015.

His Test debut coincided with Sachin Tendulkar’s farewell series against the West Indies. Rohit started his Test career with a bang as he blasted 177 and 111* in the two Tests. Although he did not score an overseas century for a long time, Rohit broke the jinx when he scored a century at The Oval against England in 2021.

Rohit Sharma record in IPL

Rohit Sharma is one of the few cricketers to go past 5000 runs in the IPL. But, his impact has been in captaincy. He is the only individual to win the IPL six times, including five times with the Mumbai Indians. As captain, he was responsible for changing the way Mumbai Indians played the IPL. Rohit has won five titles in 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2020.

One more stat that distinguishes him is that he is the only player to hit 1000 runs against one single opponent in the IPL. He has scored that many runs against the Kolkata Knight Riders. When he started out his career, Rohit Sharma was an offspinner. Unbelievably, he is one of the rare bowlers who has taken two hat-tricks in the IPL. Rohit achieved this feat in the 2009 edition of the tournament in South Africa.

Rohit Sharma vs Virat Kohli

In modern Indian cricket, Rohit Sharma has been known for his ‘rivalry’ with Rohit Sharma. Evidence of a rift between the two cricketers has never gone away totally. But, when it comes to captaincy, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are potent in international cricket. Virat Kohli may have the maximum number of wins in all formats as captain. But, whenever Rohit has stepped up to the captaincy, India has never lost a tournament.

In the IPL, Rohit has a massive advantage against Virat. Rohit has five IPL titles as captain in addition to one as a player. On the other hand, Virat Kohli has never won the IPL.

Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma when it comes to captaincy

Two of the greatest modern-day players for India. One is an opening behemoth while the other is the greatest player of all time. Although Rohit has not captained India in Tests, he has had tremendous success in ODIs and T20Is. When it comes to IPL, Rohit is the clear winner. He has secured five IPL titles for Mumbai Indians while Kohli has not had success for Royal Challengers Bangalore.

In the limited time when Rohit has captained India, he has never lost a T20I or ODI series. The lack of an ICC trophy in limited-overs cricket might be the only stain in what has been a phenomenal captaincy for Kohli.
