Recently, he overtook captain Virat Kohli to become the top-ranked Test batter from India. He is currently sitting at a career-best fifth posting, seven rating points more than Kohli for an aggregate of 773.

Meanwhile, a popular Twitter user Madhav Sharma took to his social media and posted a special Tweet for Rohit Sharma. In his Tweet, Madhav talked about the impact of Rohit as an opener for the Indian Test side. He also explained why Rohit Sharma’s late promotion is bad luck for the Indian side. Madhav wrote:

“Considering how late he plays the ball, Rohit Sharma always had the technique to do well in Test cricket. It’s just Indian cricket’s bad luck that he didn’t start opening in red-ball cricket after 2013.”
