Apart from that, he has won 5 titles in the Indian Premier League as captain and won six titles as a player.

He is the most successful captain in IPL. Coming to his batting, he is the only batsman to score 4 centuries in T20I cricket. He is one of the best in the business. Rohit Sharma registered his best score of 264 in an ODI match against Sri Lanka, which is the highest score in the T20I format. His contributions to Indian cricket has been admirable. Hitman hit a purple patch in the World Cup 2019 tournament scoring 648 runs in just 9 games at an average of 81.00 including five hundred and a half-century.

In that tourney, he became the first batsman in World Cup history to smash five centuries in a single edition. In the initial stages of his cricketing career, he used to bat lower down the order. However, his life took a drastic turn after he was promoted as an opener and there was no looking back since then. A player like Rohit Sharma is a sensational white-ball cricketer. However, he is slowly picking up the pace to carve out his niche in Test cricket as well.
