Since making his ODI debut in 2007, Rohit Sharma had to wait six years to make his longer-format debut. And when he was finally given the Test cap in November 2013 against West Indies, he made big use of the opportunity as he scored a massive 177. It was a dream start for the Mumbai-based batsman.

However, things didn’t stay sweet for Rohit as he failed to replicate his success from his wealthy limited-overs stocks to his Test numbers. The Indian management was on two minds to give Rohit the opening position in the Tests, the slot he owned like a master in the ODIs and T20Is. But when he was made to open the bat in the whites, his numbers started hiking again, and he was made the regular opener. And now, Rohit leads the Indian side in all three formats.

This article will figure out how Rohit Sharma’s Test numbers have been projected year by year. (You can also find the same charts for his ODI and T20I career here.)
