Bio

An exciting batsman who made his one-day international debut in 2010, Rohit Sharma had appeared in more than 60 ODIs and 20 Twenty20s by the time he was 24 years old.

He suffered disappointment in 2011 when he was dropped from the ICC Cricket World Cup squad but has had some outstanding performances through more than 120 ODI games including a high score of 209 in late 2013.

But his biggest feat to date came in late 2014, when he blitzed Sri Lanka to score 264 from 173 balls – the highest individual ODI score in history.

Sharma’s Test debut was longer in the making coming in November 2013 and since then he has made seven appearances.

Impressively he scored centuries in his first two matches, but has only managed one fifty since and was only selected for one match during India’s tour of England in mid-2014.

This will be his first ICC Cricket World Cup.
