There has always been a debate among the fans as to who is the best batsman between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Both the stalwarts have been dominating the game for a decade now. Kohli and Rohit have often carried Team India on their shoulders and stitched many crucial partnerships in limited-overs cricket.
Both the cricketers are good in their own way. Rohit Sharma opens the innings and is known for giving the best start to the game. He initially starts the game with a sedate pace but once he gets in the comfort zone, there is no stopping him. We all know how dangerous if he is on the song.
Rohit Sharma is the only batsman to score 4 centuries in T20Is and is also the only batsman to register the highest individual score in ODIs. He scored 264 against Sri Lanka. The flamboyant opener is also the only batsman to smash as many as 3 double centuries in ODIs. Rohit Sharma is one of the best batsmen in limited-overs cricket.
