Indian Captain Rohit Sharma has completed 15 years in International cricket. From being a part of the Indian team that won the inaugural T20 World Cup back in 2007 to becoming India’s full-time captain in all the formats, Rohit has come a long way.
The opening batter has now taken this opportunity to thank the supporters to have always believed in his abilities. He pointed out that support from the fans makes cricketers overcome difficult situations. He went on to say that he will always cherish the opportunity to play for the Indian team.
“Today I’ll be completing 15 years of international cricket since I made my debut for India. What a journey it has been, surely the one that I’ll cherish for the rest of my life. I just want to thank everyone who has been a part of my journey and a special thanks for the people who helped me become the player that I am today,” he wrote in a heartfelt tweet.
“To all the cricket lovers, fans and critics your love and support for the team is what gets us over those hurdles we all inevitably come across,” he added.
