He followed that up with an unbeaten 101 against Sri Lanka two days later at the same venue.
While Rohit Sharma has become a household name over the years with his unique batting style, more popularly described as “lazy elegance” by the masses, during the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, he evolved into a batting sensation. Rohit Sharma was a left-handed Shikhar Dawan’s opener for Team India and scored five centuries.
Rohit Sharma has recorded six centuries in the ODI World Cup. Five of these were in the 2019 World Cup edition. The Men in Blue won most of their World Cup matches in 2019 and went on to win the knockouts before India lost to New Zealand in the semi-finals.
Rohit Sharma’s favorite opponents in ODI cricket have been Australia and Sri Lanka. The batsman scored six and eight centuries, respectively, against these countries. These opponents have also been defeated by the three double centuries of Rohit Singh.

Ironically, the ideal limited-overs batsman, tailor-made for ODI cricket with his batting nuance, Rohit Sharma was first given the international spotlight during the Indian cricket team’s 2007 T20 World Cup campaign in South Africa. Though the team had multiple match-winners led by a young MS Dhoni, Sharma’s strokeplay caught many’s attention.

Unlike his ODI and T2oI careers, Rohit Sharma got the perfect start to Test cricket with a maiden hundred in his first match against West Indies at Kolkata. Then he followed that with another century in Mumbai against the same opposition in his next match.
However, Sharma wasn’t opening for India in Test cricket, and the middle-border batting position prevented him from scoring another Test century for four years. Sharma was finally allowed to play in Tests in 2019 against South Africa. After making his debut as an opener, he became the first Test cricketer to score two centuries in Test cricket. Rohit Sharma is the proud owner of eight Test centuries, the last coming against England on September 2, 2021.
