Rohit Sharma is without a doubt, one of the best to ever to play the game. A hallmark of elegance and six-hitting, the opener has made a name for himself as one of the most feared batsmen in cricket. After a slow start to his career as a middle order batsman where he couldn’t be among the runs on a consistent basis, an elevation to the opening spot worked wonders for him and once he picked up the pace, he never looked back.

Undoubtedly one of India’s openers and batsmen, Rohit Sharma is also a shrewd captain. As a vice-captain of the Indian side, he has deputized excellently to Virat Kohli while in the Indian Premier League (IPL), he has captained the Mumbai Indians (MI) side to as many as five titles – the most by any skipper. Chipping in with the ball in the early part of his career and an assured fielder as well, Rohit certainly is a master of the game.
