Rohit Sharma’s highest score in T20: Reliving the Mumbai star’s top knocks in 20-overs cricket
Rohit Sharma’s highest score in T20 is a 43-ball 118 for the Indian cricket team against Sri Lanka in 2017.
The Mumbai-born cricketer, who is now the captain of the senior team across all formats, is one of the greatest players in the T20 format given he holds the records for most runs and most centuries (4) in T20 internationals.
Rohit made his T20 debut against Baroda in 2007, five months before earning his maiden senior T20I cap for India at the 2007 T20 World Cup.
With 125 matches under his belt, Rohit Sharma is the leading T20I run-getter at the moment with 3,313 runs at a strike rate of 139.55.
As far as T20 records are concerned, the 34-year-old has 9,895 runs in 370 games and is 105 short of amassing 10,000 runs in the 20-overs format.
He has featured for two sides in the Indian T20 League - Team Deccan and Team Mumbai. Rohit made 1,170 runs in 44 matches for Deccan between 2008 and 2010.
Rohit’s T20 career, though, skyrocketed after Team Mumbai bought his services for INR 13 crore at the 2011 Indian T20 League auction.
Rohit Sharma has averaged 394.6 runs across the last 11 editions of the Indian T20 League since 2011, with his most successful campaign coming in 2013 when he amassed 538 runs.

His innings saw him equal David Miller’s record for the fastest century in T20I cricket after the South African took 35 balls to reach triple figures against Bangladesh in 2017.
KL Rahul contributed 46 runs to the opening wicket partnership of 165 runs with Rohit Sharma as the opening pair set up a comfortable 88-run win.

Rohit Sharma’s highest score in a domestic T20 match came back in 2007 against Gujarat at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. The right-hand batter slammed an unbeaten 101 runs off just 45 balls.
He smashed 13 fours as well as five sixes and Rohit’s efforts helped Mumbai clinch a five-wicket win in the Inter State Twenty-20 Tournament West Zone game.
