Rohit Sharma, the captain of India and the Mumbai Indians (MI), turned 36 on April 30. Fans in Hyderabad paid a touching homage to him on this auspicious occasion by unveiling a massive 60-foot cutout in his honor.
It goes without saying that the Indian captain enjoys a huge fanbase worldwide as well as in his home country. Since making his debut in 2007, the swashbuckling right-hander has amassed tremendous numbers of runs and holds a lot of records.
In Hyderabad, the ‘Hitman’ frenzy was in full swing as he celebrated his 36th birthday. Mumbai Indians fans in Hyderabad created a massive 60-foot cutout, which was documented on the team’s social media accounts.
Poster nikla hata Ro. Tomorrow will be a memorable day. MI captioned the post with the hashtags “#Hitman10 #OneFamily #MumbaiMeriJaan #MumbaiIndians #IPL2023 #TATAIPL.”
A total of 6060 runs, including 41 fifty-pluses and one century, have been achieved by the 36-year-old in 234 games in the top division by him. In addition, his stellar career in the league includes a record six IPL championships, five with MI as captain (2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, 2020), and one as a player with the now-defunct Deccan Chargers in 2009.
Rohit is one of the IPL players with the most runs, and he recently joined the exclusive club of athletes with 6000 runs throughout the history of the competition. On Sunday, April 30, at the venerable Wankhede Stadium, Rohit Sharma will play in a game as the Mumbai Indians take on the Rajasthan Royals. The Indian Premier League (IPL) will play its 1000th match, pitting the five-time champions against the first-year victors in a historic contest.
In seven games thus far in the 16th edition, Rohit and Co. have only been successful in winning three times. To qualify for the play-offs, the team will need to resume winning ways and move up the points standings.
