India captain Rohit Sharma shared a heartwarming note on social media as he completes 15 years in international cricket on Thursday. It was on June 23, 2007 that Rohit made his India debut, during an ODI against Ireland in Belfast.

A young Rohit, who did not get to bat in the match, went on to become one of the most successful limited-overs batters of all-time, having piled over 12,000 runs in ODIs and T20Is. As Rohit is expected to turn up for India in their four-day practice match for Leicestershire, the India captain had the following so say.

“Hello everyone. Today I’ll be completing 15 years of international cricket since I made my debut for India. What a journey it has been, surely one that I’ll cherish for the rest of my life,” Rohit stated in a note on Twitter.

In a glorious career, Rohit has featured in 45 Tests, 230 ODIs and 125 T20Is, scoring 15,733 international runs in total. He is the only batter to have struck three double hundreds in one-day cricket.
