IPL 2021– Rohit Sharma’s birthday, MI vs CSK: Rohit Sharma turned 34 on Friday, just a day before the biggest battle of IPL 2021, Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings. With just a days gap with their last match against Rajasthan Royals, where MI won by seven wickets and CSK, there was no grand celebration in the Mumbai camp. However – fans made sure to wish the Hitman and now eagerly await for their return gift.
IPL 2021- Rohit Sharma’s birthday: What return gift can the “Master of Pull Shots” give to his fans and Mumbai Indians?
A prolific run-getter, the Hitman is one of the most naturally gifted batsmen in the world and has been enjoying a tremendous run with the bat. When it comes to the shorter format, there are few who can match his striking abilities.
Rohit proved why he is regarded as a special talent when he became the first batsman to strike two double centuries in the ODIs and he now has three. However, there is one that is missing from his otherwise spectacular white-ball records — An IPL Orange Cap.
The Mumbai right-handed batter has been part of the IPL since 2008. In 13 years, while, he has guided MI to record five IPL trophies, Rohit has never been able to become the highest run-getters of a season.
Fans and Mumbai Indians both would want the Hitman to end the drought this season.

Currently, Rohit stands at eighth place in IPL 2021 points table with 215 runs. He is 96 runs short of current IPL 20221 Orange Cap holder Shikhar Dhawan. The Delhi Capitals batsman is at No.1 spot with 311 runs but has played one extra game.
The good thing is Rohit has finished Chennai leg, which is not known to be batting friendly. The MI skipper scored impressive 201 runs in five games. He is only to get better now with Mumbai playing their remaining games in Delhi, Bangalore and Kolkata which are known for batting.
