Rohit Sharma has gone from being written off to a dead-on selection for Team India in 2012/13. After a solid start in 2013, where he helped India win the ICC Champions Trophy in England, he was one of the best performers in the West Indies tour. His ODI double hundred at home against Australia capped a transformational year in which he's averaged nearly 53, compared to his career average of 36. His impressive knocks earned him a Test call-up and he didn't disappoint, with back-to-back hundreds against the West Indies in Sachin's farewell series. It was somewhat poetic, since he will look to book the Little Master's now vacant #4 spot as a young Team India begins a series of tough tours overseas. His superb IPL form continued and he top scored for the Mumbai Indians, captaining his team to their first IPL title. He also guided the Mumbai Indians to their second Champions League T20 title.
Fast Fact: ?Rohit Sharma is managed by Cornerstone, the same agency that manages Virat Kohli. Like Kohli, he was recently signed as brand ambassador by Adidas.
