‘Hitman’ Rohit Sharma turns 35 | Cricket News


MUMBAI: As Team India captain Rohit Sharma turned 35 on Saturday, here’s a trip down memory lane to relive some of the accomplishments of the opening batsman who recently took over the reins of Team India from Virat Kohli.
Widely hailed as one of the best of his generation, Rohit continues to be a star batsman for India, especially in white ball cricket.
Rohit made his international debut in 2007 against Ireland and went on to compete in the ICC Men’s World T20 in South Africa the same year, from where India returned home as champions. Since then, he has cemented his place among the greats of white-ball cricket.

Most hundreds in a World Cup
Rohit holds the record for most centuries in a World Cup over 50. He reached five centuries in nine matches India played in the 2019 ICC World Cup.

Rohit has scored 9283 runs in ODIs, 3137 in Tests and 3313 in T20 Internationals. He has broken 41 international centuries so far, including eight in Tests, 29 in ODIs and four in T20 internationals.
He is also the only player to score three double centuries in ODIs, scoring 264, 209 and 208 not knocked out.

In the Indian Premier League, Rohit is the only IPL captain to have won the title five times. In second place is former Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni with four titles.
