Who is the new God of IPL?

Cricket in India is almost a religion and millions of fans look up to their favourite stars with passion and dedication. The Indian Premier League has been wildly successful since its inception in 2008 and not only does it combine cricket with entertainment, it has also been the launchpad of several superstars. Rohit Sharma’s achievements in T20 cricket as well as his domination in the Indian Premier League definitely qualifies him for the title of being the new God of IPL.

Having won the Indian Premier League six times (five times with Mumbai Indians and once with Deccan Chargers), Rohit jointly holds the record for the most number of titles won by a player in IPL history, along with MS Dhoni. He has left his mark on IPL cricket as both a player as well as a captain and has had a unique career.

Why is Rohit Sharma the new God of IPL?

Everywhere Rohit Sharma has gone in the Indian Premier League, success has followed. Rohit began his IPL career with Deccan Chargers and stayed with the franchise till 2010. Although they finished at the bottom of the table in the inaugural season, they went all the way to lift the IPL title in 2009 under the leadership of Adam Gilchrist, thus becoming the second team after Rajasthan Royals to lift the IPL title. Rohit played a fundamental role that season. He scored 362 runs and also picked up 11 wickets which included a hattrick against Mumbai Indians of all sides.

In 2011, Mumbai Indians roped in Rohit Sharma and was handed the captaincy in the middle of the 2013 IPL season when Ricky Ponting decided to step down. Since then, they’ve never had to look back. Rohit Sharma guided Mumbai Indians to five Indian Premier League titles since 2013 with the latest one arriving in IPL 2020.

The newly appointed Indian cricket captain across all formats has demonstrated his brilliant cricketing sense during his IPL captaincy stint with Mumbai Indians. Not only has he led them to five titles, Rohit also holds the second-highest win percentage of 55.08 as captain, only behind Chennai Super Kings’ MS Dhoni (58.84). He has played 158 IPL matches as captain and has won 87 of those.

Besides his captaincy genius, Rohit Sharma is also an incredible batsman. He times his shots to perfection and has an effortless bat swing. Hailing from Mumbai, comparisons with the God of cricket Sachin Tendulkar are pretty common and so far, Rohit Sharma has justified the hype. When on song, Rohit’s hard-hitting knocks are undoubtedly one of the best things in the world of cricket.

He has been a consistent run-scorer in the Indian Premier League and is a bankable option. Rohit Sharma is the fourth-highest run-getter in the history of IPL with 6,211 runs from 243 matches.
