Rohit Sharma and the Wankhede Stadium go way back with the Indian batting superstar playing a lot of his cricket on this particular ground thanks to his allegiance with the Mumbai team in domestic cricket and Indian T20 League franchise Team Mumbai.

He’s also played quite a few matches at this stadium while representing India and has enjoyed some success on the ground at the international, domestic, and franchise level.

The Hitman as the Nagpur-born right-hander is fondly known courtesy of his power-hitting ability, Rohit Sharma has only scored one century in this stadium at the international level.

His sole ton at international level on this ground came against West Indies in the second match of a two-Test series against West Indies.

Coming into bat at No. 6 for India after West Indies were bowled out for 182 in the opening inning of the Test, Rohit Sharma would go on to make an unbeaten 111 as India ended up posting 495 en route to an innings and 126-run win to seal the series 2-0.

However, here we take a more in-depth look into Rohit Sharma’s Wankhede Stadium records at both the domestic and international levels.
