Indian cricket team captain Rohit Sharma completed 15 years in international cricket on Thursday. The batting star shared a special message about the milestone on his social media accounts.
Sharma's close friend and former teammate Yuvraj Singh lauded him for the accomplishment. In an Instagram story, Singh said the batter has been exceptional over the last 15 years.
The two-time World Cup winner further suggested that there are still many more things that Rohit is going to achieve in his cricketing career.
Yuvraj Singh wrote:
"15 saal, bemisal. More power to you, Hitman. Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost."
Meanwhile, both Singh and Sharma have shared great camaraderie, both on and off the field. The two shared the Indian dressing room for several years and they both played a major role in the team's T20 World Cup win in 2007.
