While Team India captain Rohit Sharma has achieved a lot of impressive feats in international cricket, according to Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar, his Test century against England at The Oval last year was the signature moment of his career. Thanks to all the cricket lovers, Indian batsman Rohit Sharma, said India’s all-time leading batsman in a message. Rohit Sharma has completed his 15 years in International Cricket with India.
After completing his 15 years of international cricket, Indian captain Rohit Sharma took to social media to share a heartwarming message on this special occasion. I just wanted to thank all those who were a part of my 15 years of international cricket, and I especially want to say thanks to those who helped me be the player I am today. It is an unforgettable day in Indian cricket history because it is when one of the most devastating batters of this generation, Rohit Sharma, gets his first taste of international cricket.
Indian batsman Rohit Sharma made his Test debut for India in 2007 against Ireland in Belfast. Though he did not get the chance to bat in this game, he will become the pillar of Indian batting in years to come. Rohit Sharma’s first knock was 102 versus England, followed by 104 versus Bangladesh, ending with 103 against Sri Lanka.
Rohit Hitman Sharma stormed away in an inning comprising 33 boundaries and nine maximums with a then-world-record score of 264 at Kolkata. The young Rohit, who did not get a chance to bat in the game, became one of the most successful limited-overs batsmen of all time, amassing more than 12,000 runs across ODS and T20Is.
Rohit is currently in England with the Indian cricket team, where he is gearing up for the next Test match, which is scheduled to start on 1st July, between England and India. India’s training has been going on for three days before the four-day tour to Leicestershire, which is set to follow a rescheduled fifth Test against England at Edgbaston in early July.
A win or draw in the fifth Test would see India win the England series for the first time since 2007-08. While Rohit Sharma will be leading Team India for their warm-up game against Leicestershire, a few Indian players, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah, and Prasidh Krishna, will be playing for Leicestershire to provide an opportunity to all Indian players to play a game.
