Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, will be playing in the ninth consecutive T20 World Cup in his illustrious career, winning the trophy once in the inaugural edition in 2007. In his 39 appearances in the T20 World Cup, the 37-year-old doesn’t have the best of records with the bat, scoring only 963 runs at a strike-rate of 127.89, with majority of his top performances coming in the early editions of the tournament.

The right-handed batter scored his last fifty against the traditional top eight nations in the T20 World Cup in 2014 against West Indies in Mirpur. In this article, SportsTiger looks at the three top knocks of Rohit Sharma in the T20 World Cup.
