Heart Winning Journey of Rohit Sharma in IPL

IPL is brimmed with some of the best cricket players that the world has seen. Among them is the Indian player Rohit Sharma, who has a tremendously impressive IPL Journey. When IPL started, Rohit Sharma was already considered as the future of Indian cricket, and clearly, he did not disappoint any of us in that matter.

Hitting the Jackpot at the Auction and Bumpy Start

During the first auction of IPL, Rohit Sharma was among the most popular talents in the list. He was first taken up by Deccan Chargers and later in 2011 represented Mumbai Indians. The first season of IPL was not exactly thrilling for this young player, but the team managed to seal the title. With every season, the player started to make his mark in the tournament. In his final season playing for Deccan Chargers, Rohit bagged three 50s and scored over 400 runs.

Rising to the Play

In 2011, Rohit was auctioned for USD 2 million in a new auction by Mumbai Indians. During the season, the player scored three fifties that included his career-best score of 87. Rohit also played many adventurous matches against some of his top contenders.

In 2012, merely a few hours before the first game, Sachin Tendulkar stepped down and handed over the captaincy to Harbajan Singh. This change made Rohit Sharma’s place more prominent in the team. During this season Rohit Sharma bagged his first IPL hundred against Kolkata Knight Riders. With this, he was included among the elite cricketers who hold impressive scores in the tournament. Rohit adjusted to the team quite seamlessly and soon became an internal part of Mumbai Indians.

The Breakthrough Year

The year 2013 was pivotal for this emerging Indian cricketer. Ricky Ponting stepped down from the captaincy, making Rohit Sharma the leader of Mumbai Indians. This was the year when the team won the title with four tournament wins. And, in this season Rohit scored 538 runs including four fifties in his records.

Now the fans had great hopes for the team and Rohit Sharma to win the title again, and they did have a great line-up of players to do that. Unfortunately, in the year 2014, Mumbai Indians lost the title to Chennai Super Kings.

However, the team showed tremendous performance in 2015. This is the year where the team won its second IPL under the leadership of Rohit Sharma

History in Making

Similar to 2014, the year 2016 was not good for Mumbai Indian.  They finished fifth in the season and failed to qualify for the playoff. But 2017 was a monumental moment for the team and its captain. The team was on top of the list with impressive points, and Rohit has three fifties under his season records. The team won IPL 2017 and Rohit became the first captain to win three titles.

The journey of Rohit Sharma in the IPL has truly been impressive, to say the least. And the fans are waiting for the next season to this powerful player again make a unique mark with his outstanding performance.
