Indian star opener Rohit Sharma’s career took a 360 degree turn when the former Indian skipper MS Dhoni promoted him up the order as an opener alongside Shikhar Dhawan during the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy. It turned out to be a game-changing move for both Rohit Sharma and the Indian side. Over the years, Rohit has achieved many milestones and has emerged as a consistent run-scorer across formats.

Rohit Sharma, who is in a red hot form with the bat against England in the ongoing 5-match Test series, has not only managed to score runs but has also emerged out to be a most trusted opener in the longest format of the game as well.

As he batted on Day 3 of the ongoing 4th Test match, Rohit achieved another milestone in his career as an opener as he completed 11,000 runs as an opener in international cricket. During the same knock, Rohit also crossed the 15000-run mark in international cricket.

Talking about the game, England and India, both the teams have been neck to neck in the ongoing 4th Test match. At Stumps on Day 2, the Indian side was at 43/0 with openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul standing strong.
