Bio

An exciting batsman who made his one-day international debut in 2010, Rohit Sharma had appeared in more than 60 ODIs and 20 T20Is 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 150 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.

He made two centuries in his first two Tests but has struggled from then on to score consistent runs.
