Hitman has a special association with some cricket grounds in India. The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, Brabourne Ground and the Eden Gardens in Kolkata are well liked by the Team India captain.
3 ODI Double Centuries.. 30 ODI Centuries.. 5 IPL Trophies.. These are only some of the records achieved by Team India Captain Rohit Sharma in Cricket. Hitman, who entered the team about 15 years ago, has become recognized as one of the best batsmen in the world with his stroke play. Hitman has the ability to destroy any fierce bowling. That is why he scored three double centuries in limited overs cricket in a way that is not possible for anyone else. Centuries upon centuries. He currently has 30 ODI centuries in his account. Hitman also has great records as a captain. Under his leadership, Mumbai Indians became the IPL champion 5 times. Looking at these records, Team India handed over the captaincy to Rohit. This year the 50 over World Cup will be held in our country. The Indian team will enter this tournament under the leadership of Rohit. Meanwhile, Hitman has a special connection with some cricket grounds in India. The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, Brabourne Ground and the Eden Gardens in Kolkata are well liked by the Team India captain. Cricket fans on social media are demanding that the stands in these grounds be named after Rohit as a mark of his services to Indian cricket in this event.
In fact, the cricket grounds have pavilions and stands named after many former players. However, there are very few cases where pavilions are named after the current player. Only Virat Kohli has made it possible. The pavilion at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi has been renamed the Virat Stand. Now Rohit Sharma will also join this list. There is an idea to name the stands in some stadiums after Rohit, which has a special association with him. That is..
Eden Garden- Kolkata The Eden Garden in Kolkata has a solid track record for Hitman. Rohit played eight matches in all formats here and scored 569 runs at an average of 71.12. Along with the IPL 2015 victory, this ground also became the venue for an innings of 264 runs against Sri Lanka. And his Test debut also happened here. On November 6, 2013, Rohit played a brilliant innings of 177 runs in the opening Test against the West Indies.
Wankhede Stadium- Mumbai Wankhede Stadium is like Rohit’s home. The red clay wicket here suits the Hitman’s style perfectly. That is why Rohit scored countless runs here in Tests, ODIs and T20s. The captain of the team has said on many occasions that the Wankhede Stadium is one of his favorite grounds in the world.
Brabourne Stadium- Mumbai Brabourne Stadium is one of Rohit’s favorite grounds. In 2009, Rohit scored a century in the T20 match against Gujarat at this same ground as part of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. He became the first Indian cricketer to achieve this feat. Moreover, this ground also witnessed his first first-class triple century. In 2018, he played a super innings of 162 runs in the ODI match against West Indies at the same ground.
