Purnima Sharma’s touching message warms the heart

Purnima took to Instagram, where she shared a photo from Rohit’s childhood along with a joyous birthday song. Throughout his upbringing, Rohit didn’t live with his parents in Nagpur. Rather, he resided with relatives in Mumbai, dedicating himself to cricket practice with determination.

Started his career as a bowling all-rounder

At the start of his career, Rohit batted at number 6 and bowled off-spin, aiming to become a bowling all-rounder. However, during a school tournament, Rohit’s childhood coach, Dinesh Lad, watched him bat and suggested to move up in his batting order. This decision altered Rohit’s life trajectory, propelling him to become one of India’s finest batters.

Remarkable achievements by Rohit Sharma

Rohit’s career is studded with an impressive array of records, and now he stands at the helm to guide India in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. Since 2013, Rohit has consistently showcased his indispensable value to the Indian team in white-ball cricket. His accolades include holding the record for the most double centuries (3) in ODIs, alongside the highest individual score of 264. Moreover, he boasts the most centuries in World Cup matches (7) and has notched up the highest number of T20I centuries (5) in global cricket.

In Test Cricket, though initially facing limited opportunities since his debut in 2013, Rohit’s emergence as an opener in 2019 transformed his performance trajectory. His leadership prowess is evident through victories such as clinching 5 IPL titles, 2 Asia Cups, and notably, steering India in the Cricket World Cup 2023 , where they remained undefeated until the final match, when Australia defeated the Men in Blue by 6 wickets.
