After India’s crushing defeat in the 2021 T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli gave up the captaincy in the white-ball formats, and Rohit Sharma replaced him. A year later, Kohli stepped down from the Test captaincy as well. Thus, Rohit became India’s all-format skipper.

Months later, Rohit made his Ranji Trophy debut for Mumbai in the 2006–07 season and was a part of the victorious Mumbai team.

Rohit Sharma IPL Career

Rohit Sharma has had one of the most successful and illustrious IPL careers ever. Sharma debuted in the IPL in 2008. He was signed by the Deccan Chargers franchise, based in Hyderabad. His contract got him a whopping $750,000 a year. Although he was selected as a batsman, he proved his worth as a bowler too as he took a hat-trick against Mumbai Indians. He dismissed Abhisekh Nayar, Harbhajan Singh, and JP Duminy to bag his first hattrick.

In the next IPL auction, Sharma was bought by Mumbai Indians for a sum of $2 million. He has been with the Mumbai-based franchise ever since. Sharma has scored over 6,000 runs and is the fourth-highest scorer after Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, and David Warner.

Rohit fetched more than 2 million USD in the 2011 IPL auction as Mumbai Indians were keen to have the services of the local lad. The rest is history. Rohit replaced Ricky Ponting as captain of MI in the middle of IPL 2013 and has won five titles with the franchise to emerge as the most successful captain in the history of the competition.

Rohit has scored 6472 runs in the IPL. As of 2024, Rohit has been part of six IPL-winning teams — Deccan Chargers in 2009 and Mumbai Indians in 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2020.

He scored another century in the very next match.

Sharma was however dropped from the Test team due to inconsistency in performance. Sharma however was selected for the 2018–19 tour of Australia. He became a part of the first-ever Indian team to win a test series against Australia on Australian soil.

Rohit's initial Test journey was sporadic as he struggled for consistency. But the situation changed during the home Test series against South Africa when Rohit was played as an opener and slammed 529 runs in four innings at an average of 132.35. He scored three centuries with the best score of 212.

Rohit has since cemented his place as a regular opener in the longest format, playing several wonderful knocks, including the 127 against England in the 2021 Oval Test to register his first overseas Test hundred. He became the permanent captain of the Indian Test side in 2022 after Kohli stepped down.
