Rohit Sharma

Rohit Sharma is a right handed batsman who plays for the Indian cricket team and represents Mumbai in the domestic cricket. He has also held leadership role in being the skipper of the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Rohit made his ODI debut at the age of 20 years in 2007 and later in the year he played his first T20I. Rohit had a slow rise to become a permanent fixture in the Indian setup but since 2013, he's maintained his foothold as the opening batsman in limited over contests. Rohit Sharma is most popular for his big scoring at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata where he scored 177 in a Test on debut. The love affair with the Eden Gardens grew when Rohit scored 264 against Sri Lanka which is the highest individual ODI score and in the process he became the first batsman to hit two double tons in ODIs.
