Happy Birthday Rohit Sharma: Here are top 5 records held by The Hitman
Rohit Sharma is an Indian opener and is the vice-captain of Team India in the limited-overs circuit. He is also the reigning skipper of Mumbai Indians and has helped the side win five Indian Premier League titles. He has also won an ICC tournament.
When it comes to Rohit Sharma, fans recognise him as one of the prolific Indian opening batsmen. Be it any format of the game, he has tome and again delivered and proved that he has what it takes to be one of the best in the world.
Be it at the international stage or the Indian Premier League; success has hardly failed to grace him. Consequently, he has also been bestowed upon with the duties of being the vice-captain of Team India and he seems to be doing an excellent job in that part as well.
Meanwhile, he is celebrating his 34th birthday on Friday. On the same note, we present five of his outstanding records in the sport.
Top ODI score
First and foremost has to be Rohit's distinguished knock of 264 in a One-Day International innings against Sri Lanka at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata in 2014. The knock happens to be the highest individual score in an ODI innings to date, besides being the second-highest in List-A cricket. In this innings, he also scripted the record of hitting most fours in an innings (33).
Best in the IPL
Rohit has been highly successful in the IPL. He has helped Mumbai Indians win record five titles under his captaincy and is the most successful skipper of the tournament. As a player, he has won six championships, making him the most successful player as well.
Six for ton
In a unique record held by Rohit, he has scored at least one of his centuries in each format with a SIX. No other batsman in the world has ever done that across formats.
Love for 150-plus
Rohit also holds the record of having played the most ODI innings of scoring 150-plus (8). Consequently, he has surpassed the previous records maintained by Sachin Tendulkar and David Warner.
Centuries in T20Is
Rohit has four centuries to his name in the shortest format. As a result, he is the first and current record holder of having scored the most tons in the same.
