In international cricket, Rohit Sharma has been nothing short of a sensation. His ability to time the ball and hit some spectacular shots has won him a large following throughout the world. Rohit is skilled against both pace and spin, and he can cause problems for most bowlers. In his career, the Mumbaikar has set several records, and his statistics across all formats demonstrate his worth with the willow.
Rohit, who broke into the Indian team in 2007, left no stone unturned in his quest to shine on the international stage. Rohit has made his mark on the world scene with impeccable timing, a diverse repertoire of strokes, and the ability to fire off from the start.
His batting style is defined by his balance and ability to pick up the line and length. Rohit can smash some hot drives from the offside, and he generally responds to a bouncer by planting his front foot and pushing the ball in front of the square at full speed. Over the course of his career, the powerful batsman has scored 9208 runs at an amazing average of 49.0 in 227 ODIs. He’s also hauled in 29 centuries and 43 half-centuries. Rohit has also performed well in T20Is, accumulating 2864 runs at an average of 32.5, including four centuries and 21 half-centuries.
Here are the records Rohit Sharma can break in the near future:
3,000 runs in Test cricket
Sharma made his Test debut against the West Indies at Eden Gardens in Kolkata in November 2013, during Sachin Tendulkar’s farewell series. However, from December 2013 to October 2019, he only scored 1,297 runs in 45 innings pitched at 33.25 mph. Rohit’s batting average increased once he was promoted to the opener. He has 2,615 runs to his credit, with 7 hundred and 12 fifties. To reach 3,000 Test runs, he needs 385 more runs. In the year 2021, Sharma had a great home series against England. He played a key role in his team’s comeback after losing the first Test in Chennai, scoring a brilliant century.
Scoring 300 in ODIs
In limited-overs cricket, Rohit Sharma’s proclivity for high scores is well-known. He is the first batsman in ODI cricket history to reach three double hundreds, and he also owns the record for the most 150+ runs with six. With an incredible 264 in ODI cricket, Rohit also owns the record for the highest individual score. Rohit Sharma plays the entire 50-over quota since he begins the innings for India. He’s a slow starter who takes his time to carefully craft his innings. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that he’ll break the 300-run barrier in ODIs and become the first member of this exclusive club.
1,000 Test runs away from home
Rohit has already proven his worth in domestic Test cricket. He is a powerful batsman who does so with grace and style. In limited-overs cricket, he is normally an opening batsman, though he has spent the majority of his Test career as a middle-order batsman. Sharma became the first batsman to score two hundred in a match in his maiden appearance as an opening batsman on October 5, 2019, during a Test match against South Africa. Meanwhile, the next tour gives him the chance to build a name for himself away from home. In away Tests, Rohit needs 55 more runs to get 1,000 runs.
Fastest Hundred in ODI Cricket
AB de Villiers broke the record for the fastest century in one-day internationals, scoring it in just 31 balls to break Corey Anderson’s previous mark of 32 balls. He hit 16 sixes in an ODI innings, the most by a South African and the joint-highest total of sixes in an ODI innings. Rohit Sharma and Colin Munro have the joint-fastest century record in T20 cricket, both coming off 35 deliveries. If Rohit Sharma is in the proper frame of mind and decides to attack from the start right away, he has a good chance of breaking AB de Villiers’ record for the quickest century in international cricket.
