Don’t you think that from last two-three years, it has become too common to appreciate Rohit Sharma after a match. Either a ODI or a T-20 match, viewing Rohit Sharma in the tally of maximum run getter has become so casual that sometimes we ignore the fact.
The fact that not a long time ago, it was difficult to even picture him in the playing eleven. Seeing him raising his bat after a century was like a dream. For his fans it was a sigh of relief, when he started opening for India in the shorter format of the game.
And that was the turning point of his career. After that the pattern has been same in all the matches. Rohit Sharma being at the top of the run tally with his opponent and counterpart Virat Kohli.
Some might say that the previous decade was Virat Kohli’s decade but no one can deny the numbers. The stats which shows how much Rohit Sharma have covered and at this current moment, he is on the brink of becoming the Sixth Indian to score 10,000 runs in ODI.
Now coming back to the topic because of which we are talking about Rohit Sharma today.
The way RoHitman Sharma has played today against New Zealand. After failing in the first two matches, this innings was really important for Rohit. Not just for him even for the Indian team as you never want a player of his caliber getting low scores on two consecutive matches.
Since these low scores drops down his morale as well as affect other players too. But with today’s innings of 69 from 40 balls, he surely get his groove back. Yes this innings looks a little slow when compared to his other t-20 innings but you cant deny the fact that Rohit Sharma is playing in foreign conditions against bowler like Tim Southee.
According to experts like Virendre Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh etc, this innings of him is one of the best innings of his in the shortest format of the game.

While talking about this match (India Vs New Zealand), how can we forget about the super over. The most thrilling part of this match was the super over in which, Rohit Sharma owned the Kiwi’s.
So it won’t be wrong calling this previous decade as Rohit Sharma’s decade and the records are a proof to it.
We hope that his form continues in the coming T-20 World cup and he brings the cup back home.
