How has Rohit Sharma performed in T20 World Cups? – The Mumbai batter has been one of the most explosive batters in the T20 World Cup history.
Having made his maiden appearance in the T20 World Cup in its inaugural edition in 2007, Sharma has made his presence felt over the years and become an integral member of the team.
The right-handed batter is the fourth-highest run-scorer in the T20 World Cups as he has amassed 919 runs at an average of 36.76. His highest score stands at an unbeaten 79 and his strike rate stands just above 130. He, however, still has not scored a single century in the marquee event with nine half-centuries to his name.
