Rohit Sharma is one of the vital cogs in the Indian batting lineup, upon whose shoulders lies a huge responsibility in steering the ship during the forthcoming ICC World Cup. The hard-hitter of the cricketing ball is renowned for his lazy elegance while batting, as he effortlessly leans into his strokes, deftly putting the deliveries away for boundaries.
Although the 31-year-old often struggled during the initial part of his career, his fortunes experienced a dramatic turnaround after being promoted to open the innings. Since then, the right-hander has established his destructive reputation mustering a pile of runs under his belt.
He recently scored another half-century albeit in a losing cause against Australia in the final match of the ODI series. In the process, Rohit crossed the 8,000 runs landmark in ODI cricket, becoming the third fastest player in history to reach the milestone, behind Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.
