There was a time in Cricket history when the team’s score barely reaches 250. Around then a man opened and individually made 264 runs in only 173 balls. That was a record no one can break in professional cricket to date (at the time of writing this article).
He is the great Rohit Sharma. This attitude in the game gives him the name, Ro-Hit!!
He had experienced his childhood in a little spot in Nagpur. In an interview, he said that he had started playing cricket at the young age of 5. He used to be a bowler. The advice of the coach and his hard work groomed him as a batsman and that to the opener of the Indian cricket team.
How about we take a sneak into his life.
