Since 2013, Rohit Sharma has become one of the most important cogs in the shorter formats for India. That’s when he started opening the batting and the tide turned for him in international cricket. He’s been one of the most successful openers around the world since then.

Moreover, he’s been getting the big scores consistently and even has three double tons to his name whereas most of the others don’t even have one. However, Rohit has never had an outstanding IPL or a season where he’s simply dominated.

Still, he’s at the top of the run charts for MI. The MI skipper has amassed 3728 runs at an average of 31.86 and a strike-rate of 130.62. His batting numbers may not be as good but his captaincy has been spot on. Rohit has led MI to four titles since 2013 – every alternate year (2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019). His win percentage as captain is 58.65% which is one of the best in the history of the IPL.
