Rohit Gurunath Sharma Bio

If there is someone whose batting caused awe and frustration in equal amounts, it is Rohit Sharma. At the start of his cricketing career, the hugely talented Mumbai batsman had several good knocks followed by lean patches. And even as 2014 churns on, Rohit still has not finally arrived on the big glitzy world of Indian cricket - though after a strong 2013 it appeared he might have.

He first made a mark in the CB Series in Australia in 2008, particular were his 66 in a 123-run stand with Sachin Tendulkar helped India defeat the hosts in the first final at Sydney. From that point in time, many expectations were placed on Rohit but they were all false starts. He was tipped to make his Test debut against South Africa during in 2010 but injured himself on the morning of the match while playing football. It seemed Rohit would be going down the path of the unfulfilled potentials.

However, 2013 proved to be his annus mirabilis. The year began with an attacking 83 in an ODI against England in Mohali which set in motion a run of consistent performances. Forming a solid opening partnership with Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit helped India set the base for their Champions Trophy success in England.

What transpired between October and November could well be considered career-changing for Rohit. Having blazed away to an unbeaten 141 in the second ODI against Australia in Jaipur, Rohit became only the third batsman to score a double-hundred in ODIs when he smashed 209 at Bangalore. Less than two weeks later, Rohit marked his Test debut with a match-winning century against West Indies. In his next innings, Rohit against reached three figures as India took the series 2-0; the Man-of-the-Series award was a formality for Rohit.

However, a horrible tour of South Africa followed by a poor trip to New Zealand, and then a scratchy Asia Cup, have again dented Rohit's career. His task of charting a new course for Indian cricket post Tendulkar's retirement remains an uphill challenge.
