While he deserves his exploits in Test cricket, Rohit Sharma has no doubt about the potential as a batsman. He is the only player in ODI history who has scored two double centuries, in which he scored a world record of 264 against Sri Lanka in 2014, and it tells you how talent he is.
Regardless of the success in limited overs cricket, Rohit has failed to get a place in the Test team, whose main reason was the huge competition for the places. Eventually he broke up against West Indies in 2013 during Tendulkar’s last international series. Rohit batted with a century in the first two innings while ending the one-time whale and recorded an innings victory in two Tests against India. The move to open with them in small format of the game has also been wonderful for India as well. In 2013, he scored more than 1,000 ODI runs. But their test form had a slight decline and they lost their place.
Rohit was ruled out due to a finger injury, but returned with a bang, scored 264 against Sri Lanka. In 2015, he was the second highest run-getter for India in the World Cup. Just when it seems that he will make his place in the Test team after a good short run, then another finger injury sidelined him at home during the New Zealand series. Sharma missed India’s most successful domestic season in 2016. He returned to cricket in 2017 and led Mumbai to their third title in 6 years, something he will be proud of for a long time. Runs in whites though is what still elude him.
