The Mumbai-born cricketer made his ODI debut back in June 2007 and has emerged as one of the best batsman produced by India. Rohit was always regarded as a highly-talented batsman. However, his best came out when he started opening the innings for India in 2013 as since then, the star batsman hasn’t looked back and is crashing one record after another. Rohit has also registered three double centuries in ODI cricket while no other batsman has achieved the feat more than once. Well, these numbers speak volumes of the batsman's ability and he isn’t finished yet.
