A fitting reward for a chequered 10-year career
Rohit has been a vital cog in India’s limited-overs set-up in recent years.
Ever since making his international debut in 2007, Rohit Sharma has been at the receiving end of polarised opinions when it comes to his contributions to Indian cricket. While he has been a heavyweight in the limited-overs format, he hasn’t quite been able to make a telling impression in the five-day format over the years. His numbers in first-class cricket are a justification of the talent and batting expertise that he brings to the table – more than 6000 runs at an average of 54.52 with 19 hundreds, including a highest of 309.
