On a memorable Thursday, India skipper Rohit Sharma etched his name in the history of Indian cricket by surpassing the legendary MS Dhoni to become the fifth-highest run-getter for India in international cricket. The elegant right-handed batsman achieved this remarkable feat through consistent performances and a sheer display of batting prowess across all formats of the game.

Rohit's journey to the milestone has been one of dedication, perseverance, and sheer talent. Over the years, he has emerged as one of the most prolific run-scorers for India, showcasing his ability to thrive in all conditions and against all opponents. His cricket journey started in 2007.

He made his international debut against Ireland in the shortest format of the game. Since then, he has remained an integral part of the Indian cricket team. As of now, Rohit has amassed a staggering total of 17,298 runs in 443 international matches for India. This includes appearances in Test matches, One-Day Internationals (ODIs), and Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is).

Notably, Rohit's incredible tally includes 44 centuries and 92 half-centuries, showcasing his penchant for converting starts into big scores. As he surpassed MS Dhoni's record of 17,092 runs for India in 523 matches, it was a moment of pride and celebration for Rohit's fans and cricket enthusiasts alike.

It's worth noting that Rohit Sharma's resurgence as an opener has been one of the biggest strengths of his career. He has been phenomenal while opening the inning. In Test cricket, he became the joint-fastest Indian to score 2000 runs as an opener. He achieved this in 40 innings, joining Rahul Dravid and Virender Sehwag on the elite list. Meanwhile, in the last 29 innings, Rohit has scored runs in double digits, equaling the record of Mahela Jayawardene.
