Rohit quickly became a key part of the Deccan Chargers in the IPL and also won the 2009 League Emerging Player award.

Sharma was on the inside and out until the 2013 Champions Cup where MS Dhoni asked him to open innings and he hasn’t looked back since. His five centuries in the 2019 World Cup and three hundred ODIs in doubles is a statement that he is one of the best openers India has ever produced.
