Rohit Gurunath Sharma
(Indian Cricketer)

Life often finds a way to surprise us and that is what happens with Rohit Sharma. Being an effortless stroke player in domestic cricket he got his first call to serve his nation in the World T20 in 2007. The in-form Yuvraj Singh picked up an injury and Rohit Sharma was called upon as a replacement of Singh. He got his first break in the match against South Africa and India’s top order had toppled. A mature and calm half century with some classic shots from the cricketing textbook helped India to reach a respectable score that they successfully defended, knocking out the host nation in their own backyard.

That added up with a few more half centuries, shot Rohit to the limelight of being a regular man in the upcoming away series in Australia. Rohit have the perfect mixture of timing, placement, style and that helped him score the unachieveable. The only man on the planet to have scored two double centuries in limited over cricket. His triple century in the Ranji level could have been matched in the international level had the limited overs were extended by 5 more overs. However, is monumental success has seen equal share of disappointment as he throws his wicket away very often and have been dropped multiple times but every time, the tide’s was not in his favour, he had the Indian Premier League every year to still catch on to the selector’s eyes. He started off his IPL journey with Deccan Chargers and in those two years he made over 350 runs each and then he was brought by Mumbai Indians in 2011. Since then, Rohit has not delivered with the bat but also with the title for three times.
