Rohit Sharma Bio
Rohit Gurunath Sharma, better known as Hitman is one of the most reliable limited-overs player in Indian side beside Virat Kohli. Although, you can question his technique in the Test cricket but you can’t negate his impressive 177 against West Indies coming on his Test debut. What can better define ‘Sharma Ji’ is he is the only batsman in the cricket ODI history to score three double tons, and of course the only batsman to score 250+? If still, you can’t know the power-game he posses in the limited overs, you need to better know that he is the joint most number of centuries scorer in T2OIs (3) along with Kiwi opener Colin Munro. Talking about his performances in the biggest T20 league, IPL, he is one of the leading batsmen for sure but his exceptional captaincy brings more limelight to him. Not to forget, he is the only skipper to win IPL trophy thrice apart from MS Dhoni.
