Rohit Sharma

Possessed all the Blueprints in the book when he emerged from the outskirts of Mumbai as the apparent heir to the great Indian hitters of the 2000s. In 2010’so he had become a blockbuster in white-ball cricket and the man in charge of possibly the most terrifying league team in the early T20 age.

Rohit had talent both the casual observer and trained eye. The Captain and Selectors kept backing him. It all clicked when he playing at open the batting in ODIs late in 2012 was one particular turning point.

Scored double-hundreds in ODI and won Six IPL in the first 15 editions, scored five hundreds at the 2019 ODI World Cup, when he finally got to open in Tests in 2019, three Hundred in his first series, one of them a double.

“Hitman”: His IPL franchise nicknamed him “Hitman”, more caresser, less hitter. But Rohit Sharma still became known as one of the foremost hitters of blockbuster sixes of his career. So spectacular and certainly his acceleration that people began to anticipate a massive score every time he went past 50.

Won five trophies in his captaincy at Mumbai Indians. He established himself as a thorough, studious, and calm leader who was not afraid to use technology and statistics to make choices. In international cricket, he was an effective deputy to Virat Kohli in limited-overs formats, winning two titles in Kohli’s absence, before taking over as captain in all formats in 2022.

Playing style

Sharma is an aggressive batter who also plays with grace and elegance. In limited overs cricket, he is normally an opening batsman, while he has spent the majority of his Test career as a middle-order batsman. Sharma is largely regarded as one of the greatest batsman in limited overs cricket. And he was known as Hitman because of his offensive batting style and six-hit skills.

Sunil Gavaskar compares Sharma’s batting style to that of Virender Sehwag and Viv Richards. In his November 2018 piece for The Times of India, Gavaskar stated.

Rohit Sharma has been the star player in both the limited overs and T20 series. He, like Virender Sehwag before him, is unstoppable once he gets going, and he, like Viru, craves huge hundreds. There was worry around the ground when Viru used to get out aiming to knock another delivery out of the park, just as there is when Rohit gets out to a seemingly innocuous shot. If Rohit is able to transfer his white ball exploits into red ball cricket, he will be the world’s most dangerous batter, behind Viv Richards and Virender Sehwag.

While Sharma is not a regular bowler, he can bowl off spin with his right arm. He typically fields in the slips and has stated that this is an aspect of his game that he strives to develop.
