The all rounder made his ODI debut against Kenya in 2000, played a total 304 ODIs, 40 Tests and 58 T20Is matches. He amassed total 11,778 international runs including 17 hundred and 71 fifties.
Not only Rohit but also another former opener Virendra Sehwag also fells about the pain of not getting a farewell match but Yuvraj said he did not want one.
“I did not tell anyone in BCCI that I have to play the last match. Agar main accha tha, potential tha toh main ground pe se chale jaata. (If I was good enough, I would have retired from the ground). Aur mujhe is tarha ki cricket khelna pasand nahi hai, ki mujhe ek match chahiye (I don’t like to ask for a game, I have never played the game with that mindset),” he said.
