Rohit Sharma, the veteran Indian cricketer, turned 33 years on Thursday, April 30. He is one of the most successful batsmen in international cricket along with skipper Virat Kohli. He started as a batsman, who used to throw his wicket away at crucial stages. However, as his career progressed, he passed the test of times and developed himself into the match-winner for the Men in Blue.
On his birthday, his teammates wished him, showing their love and admiration. Even his teammates from the Mumbai Indians poured praises on him. Recently, the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise released a video where the team’s players told how Rohit meant to them and the team. It included Yuvraj Singh, Mitchell McClenaghan, Kieron Pollard and Herschelle Gibbs.
Seeing the wishes, Rohit was in awe and he expressed gratitude towards his loved ones. But he also took it as a chance to tag at Yuvraj. The MI captain said the lockdown period has taken a toll in the southpaw’s head. In the clip, the left-hander’ wore a head-band with a rather messy head.
The Nagpur-born Rohit took to Twitter and wrote, “thank you so much guys. @YUVSTRONG12 lockdown has seriously hit your hair the hardest.” Currently, India is going through a lockdown until May 3 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Rohit shining for MI
Back in 2013, Rohit took over as the skipper of the Mumbai team from Ricky Ponting. It changed MI’s fortunes from the outset. In the very year, he guided the side to their maiden IPL victory. Then in 2015, 2017 and 2019, Rohit scripted glory for the team. The pressure of captaincy didn’t affect his batting by any means as he is one of the leading run-scorers of the T20 tournaments.
Last year, MI won the title for the fourth time, beating the Chennai Super Kings by a solitary run in Hyderabad. Back in 2018, Rohit also sacrificed his opening slot to make way for a few talented cricketers. Even going forward, Rohit is expected to take down a few records. Recently, Gautam Gambhir felt that Rohit has the ability a few more IPL title before he calls time on his career.
