Rohit Sharma stands as one of the most formidable openers in the annals of limited overs cricket. Renowned for his blistering stroke play, Rohit currently ranks as the fourth-highest run-scorer in the Indian Premier League (IPL) with over 6000 runs. While he may not boast the same level of association with batting records in the IPL as some others, Rohit has etched his name in history as the most successful captain the league has seen.

Taking over the reins from Ricky Ponting midway through the 2013 season for Mumbai Indians (MI) and subsequently becoming the face of the franchise alongside Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit has achieved feats unparalleled in the past decade. Beyond leading MI to five IPL titles, he also holds numerous other records within the tournament.

In the forthcoming 17th edition of the IPL, Rohit is slated to represent Mumbai Indians solely as a batter, setting the stage for the ‘Hitman’ to potentially rewrite some records.

Let’s delve into five records that Rohit Sharma could potentially shatter in the upcoming IPL season:

1. Most Ducks in IPL

While Rohit Sharma boasts an illustrious career, an unwanted record lurks – he is just two ducks away from holding the record for the most ducks in IPL. Dinesh Karthik currently leads with 17 ducks from 242 matches, while Rohit closely trails with 16. Despite his numerous positive records, navigating this particular statistic will be an intriguing subplot for the seasoned opener.

2. Most Centuries for MI

In the illustrious history of MI, only six players have achieved the feat of scoring a century, and Rohit Sharma stands among them. To secure the record for the most centuries for MI, he needs just one more ton in the 2024 edition. Competing with the likes of Lendl Simmons and Suryakumar Yadav, Rohit could potentially target becoming the Indian player with the second-most IPL centuries, chasing Virat Kohli (7) and Shubman Gill (3).
