Rohit Sharma ODI Century: In the Indian team, two players Shubman Gill and Ishaan Kishan have scored two double centuries in two months. Rohit Sharma, the captain of the same team, has achieved this double century feat thrice. After Gill’s double century, the fans have started expecting that Rohit Sharma will now score his fourth double century.
But tell the fans here that Rohit Sharma’s ODI form is not going very well. The Indian captain has not been able to score a century in ODIs for the last three years. The fans are expecting a big score from him. Rohit scored his last ODI century on 19 January 2020.
Played 15 matches in three years, no century came
Rohit then scored an inning of 119 runs in the Bangalore ODI against Australia. After this century, Rohit played 15 ODIs, scoring only 515 runs at an average of 39.61. During this, he put 4 fifty. His highest score has been 83 runs. But Rohit could not convert a good start into a century. Now first he is expected to end the drought of the century. Then we can hope for a double century.
