Having made his international debut in 2007, Sharma made a mark for himself as an indispensable part of a powerful India batting line-up. He began his career batting in the middle-order before being asked to open the innings in the Champions Trophy 2013 and has since broken numerous records and set new milestones.

Rohit holds a host of records in limited-overs cricket including for the highest ever individual score (264 vs Sri Lanka), most centuries in T20Is (four), most centuries in a single edition of a world cup (2019 ICC Cricket World Cup), the most number of double centuries in ODIs (three) among others.

While he has been highly successful in ODIs and T20Is, consistency in the longest format of the game evaded him for some time before he was asked to the open the innings last October. He has since added a double century apart from two centuries in six innings to his Test record. However, he missed the Test series in New Zealand earlier this year due to injury.
