Rohit Sharma turned 33 on Thursday and the who’s who of the Indian cricketing fraternity, ICC and BCCI wished the swashbuckling opener on his special day.
The Hitman, as he is so often referred to, has scored three double-hundreds in One-day Internationals (ODIs) and four centuries in T20 Internationals (T20Is).
Rohit holds the record for the highest individual score in ODIs. He achieved this feat against Sri Lanka when he smashed 264 runs in Kolkata in 2014.
Rohit, who captains Mumbai Indians, is the most successful captain in Indian Premier League (IPL). He has led the Mumbai-based franchise to four IPL titles.
In 2019 World Cup, the right-handed batsman smashed five centuries and finished the tournament as the leading run-scorer.
Rohit is also one of the three Indian batsmen who have scored a hundred in all three formats of the game.
Suresh Raina and KL Rahul are the other two Indian batsmen who have achieved this feat in the international circuit.
Here is how cricket fraternity wished Rohit Sharma on his 33rd birthday:
Happy B'day Rohit @ImRo45. God bless you with good health and happiness and many more elegant innings. Stay safe stay healthy.
