Is everything done for Rohit Sharma in the blue and gold jersey? Take a look at all the milestones he has achieved in MI colors over the years

It looks like everything is done for Rohit Sharma in the Mumbai Indian jersey. He came up in 2011 as a 24-year-old boy, and it’s fair to say that, just like a magician, he turned everything around for the Mumbai franchise.

More good than bad, under his captaincy, which lasted almost 10 years, the team has won five IPL trophies, enough to make you believe in his impact. Speaking of impact as a player, that is also not hidden to anyone, as this 36-year-old batter now has almost 7000 runs in the IPL in over 250 matches, with an impactful strike rate of 132. He is surely a legend of the game. There has been speculation that we might not see him in the MI jersey in 2025 for various reasons.
