Today we have a few of the unaccomplished IPL records of Rohit Sharma. Mumbai Indians have always boasted of a very strong and well-balanced team, a reason why they are the most successful team in the history of the IPL. Their foreign acquisitions have won them countless matches over the years. The Indian contingent of the team has also performed admirably over the years of which the Pandya brothers- Hardik and Krunal Pandya are the biggest examples. However, one man who has been their marquee player throughout this rise to ascendancy has been Rohit Sharma.
One of the finest modern-day cricketers in limited-overs cricket, Rohit has carved out a niche for himself as one of the most successful batsmen in the history of this tournament, in addition to being one of its most successful captains as well. However, few records have eluded Rohit, something he would like to accomplish this time around. Here, we talk about the unaccomplished IPL records of Rohit Sharma.

Rohit despite being one of the most illustrious names in the format has had only one solitary hundred to his credit. Although he has played numerous match-winning innings for his team, he has not been able to strike that magical three-figure mark more than once. That is something that would drive Rohit towards breaking that jinx in this edition of the tournament. Rohit’s magnificent ability to play spin by advancing down the wicket makes him a deadly prospect for any spinner, something which augurs well for pitches in UAE where the tournament is being held.

Rohit Sharma’s enviable captaincy record boasts of four title wins in IPL in 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019 respectively. He would look to achieve that fifth title win and establish his crown as the most successful captain in the history of franchise cricket. His tactical acumen and experience of playing under intense pressure will shine through his prudent decision-making ability. Also, the fact that Rohit leads from the front without waiting for anyone to take over the mantle of run-scoring is a vital trait in his captaincy style.

Rohit Sharma boasts of having one of the highest sixes counts in the history of IPL with 194 sixes. However, the list is headed by illustrious players like Chris Gayle, AB De Villiers, and MS Dhoni. MS Dhoni with 209 sixes features among the top 3. Rohit will look to break that record of MS and become the highest six hitters among the Indian batsmen in the history of IPL.

One record that would drive Rohit Sharma the most is the tag of the highest run-scorer in the history of the tournament. With 5412 runs in 177 matches, Virat Kohli is at the top of the heap. With close to 4900 runs in the format, Rohit is close on his heels. A brilliant IPL campaign for Rohit will ensure that he touches that record and reclaims the tag of becoming the most successful limited-overs batsman for India after Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, and MS Dhoni.

Virat and Rohit have undoubtedly had this silent tussle of supremacy with Virat rampaging forward continuously in the last decade scoring hundreds at will and closing in on Sachin’s ODI record. However, Rohit Sharna after 2013 has been in a league of his own accumulating close to 20 hundred in the ODI format. In IPL too, he would be eager to establish his dominance over his captain, the renowned Indian run machine. Among the unaccomplished IPL records of Rohit Sharma.
The competitive spirit between these two cricketing giants and close friends would be one of the most exciting prospects in this IPL to watch out for. Crowds would be eager to see two of the very best in the format struggle it out in the middle of the 22 yards.
