‘I will finish..’ – Rohit Sharma reveals his retirement age – Watch

India opener Rohit Sharma, like several other cricketers, has kept himself busy by interacting with his fellow cricketers. A few days after interacting with Kevin Pietersen and Mohammed Shami, Rohit held a discussion with Australia opener David Warner. The veteran cricketers spoke on a range of topics and also talked about Shikhar Dhawan, who has opened the innings with both of them.

During the interaction, Rohit also opened up on his future and hinted that he might retire soon. Rohit, who is 33 now, said that he will be finishing his career before the age of 38-39.

“When we grow up in India it’s actually like that when we grow up we say cricket is life. There is so much beyond that you cricket finishes when you’re what 38-39. I don’t know when will you finish but I will certainly finish before that,” Rohit told Warner.

A late bloomer in international cricket, Rohit made his international debut way back in 2007. A member of the 2007 T20  World Cup-winning team, Rohit mostly spent time away from international cricket due to inconsistent form.

His career graph went up when he started opening on a regular basis with Dhawan in 2013. He continues to open in white-ball cricket and has never been dropped from the playing XI since then.

Rohit is presently the only batsman to score more than one double-century in ODIs (three) and has scored 9115 runs in the 50-over format. He also has an impressive record in the shortest format.

With 2773 runs in 108 T20Is, Rohit is the second-highest run-scorers in that format. Also, he tops the list of scoring most centuries (4) in T20Is. Rohit’s white-ball form saw him earn a place in the Test squad for Australia tour in 2018/19.

He was promoted to open the innings in the 2019/20 season and did well in the home series against South Africa. A calf injury during the T20I series saw Rohit miss the two Tests against Black Caps earlier this year.
