Rohit Sharma – The Hitman

Making his debut back in 2007, Rohit Sharma has established himself as an integral part of the Indian national cricket team, especially in limited-overs cricket. A new feather in his cap was added when he succeeded Virat Kohli as the captain of the Indian team in all three formats. He is popularly known as “The Hitman” for his superior batting skills and is the face of the Mumbai Team, whom he led to 5 titles.

Rohit has been a prolific run scorer in the Indian T20 League over the years, ranking third in the list behind Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan, with over 5500 runs to his name. However, for a large part of his career, it seemed Rohit Sharma's biggest gift was his biggest burden. While he had the talent, it took time for that to translate into runs. Once it clicked, it did spectacularly. The move to open the batting in ODIs late in 2012 was the turning point in his career. He became a double-hundred machine and Indian T20 League-winning phenomenon.

With over 15 years of international cricket experience, Rohit Sharma has a long list of records and achievements. He will always be known for his record ODI knock of 264 against Sri Lanka at Eden Gardens in 2014.
