Hyderabad, March 27: Mumbai Indians’ veteran opener Rohit Sharma is all set to mark his 200th match for the franchise via the Wednesday’s clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.
Rohit now becomes just the third player after MS Dhoni (CSK) and Virat Kohli (RCB) to play 200 games for a single IPL team. He was also given a ‘200’ special jersey by MI mentor, the legendary Sachin Tendulkar, ahead of Wednesday’s match.
Overall, this is Rohit’s 245th IPL match, including taking in the appearances he made for the now-defunct Deccan Chargers, which is the second-most to Dhoni’s 252 matches. Rohit has played in the IPL for Mumbai Indians in 14 different editions of the tournament, making him the only player to achieve this feat for the franchise.Since he became a part of the franchise in 2011, Rohit has become the all-time leading run getter for them in the IPL, scoring over 5000 runs.
