Rohit Sharma made his international debut in the one-off ODI against Ireland in Belfast. India cruised to a nine-wicket victory, but the Mumbai-born cricketer didn’t bat. He had to wait till his second T20I match to make an appearance with the bat.
The then-20-year-old struck a match-winning half-century against South Africa. It helped India post 153 and grabbed a memorable 37-run win over the Proteas.
The ‘Hitman’ had to wait till 2013 to make his Test debut. He scored 177 in his maiden innings and clinched the player of the match in the opening Test of the two-match series against West Indies at home.
In IPL, Rohit has represented two franchises – the erstwhile Deccan Chargers and Mumbai Indians. Though his maiden innings in T20I and Test cricket grabbed headlines, IPL was different. The middle-order batsman was dismissed for a duck against Kolkata Knight Riders.
