    Profile

    The only batsman to have hit two double-centuries in One-Day Internationals and the record holder for the highest individual score (264 against Sri Lanka in November 2014), Rohit Sharma is an elegant batsman with a lot of time on his hands for shot-making. Rohit first came to notice in the 2005-06 Deodhar Trophy when his unbeaten 123-ball 142 overshadowed Gautam Gambhir’s ton and led West Zone to a win over North Zone. Lack of application, however, has meant that his international career has been far from consistent. Having missed out on a Test debut against South Africa in 2010 because of a twisted ankle on the morning of the match, Rohit had to wait till 2013 when he made his mark with two hundreds in two Tests at home against West Indies, but since then has fallen behind in the pecking order. The selectors have backed him in the limited-overs cricket, where he is now the preferred opener and recently registered the highest score by an Indian at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.  A key part of the erstwhile Deccan Chargers that won the IPL in 2009, he was bought by Mumbai Indians, who shelled out $US2m of their available purse of $US4.5m to secure his services in the 2011 auctions. He duly repaid them in 2013 when he led the side to its first IPL and Champions League title.
