Rohit Sharma on Thursday marked his return to Mumbai Indians set-up by becoming the first player to score 1000 runs against a single opponent in the IPL. The Mumbai skipper achieved the feat against Kolkata Knight Riders in Match 34 of the IPL 2021.
Rohit now tops the list with over 1000 runs against Kolkata, with David Warner being the only player close to him. The Australian southpaw has 943 runs against Punjab Kings and 915 versus the Kolkata outfit.
Unperturbed by KKR’s move to start the attack with spinners Nitish Rana and Varun Chakravarthy, Rohit started with a boundary and timed the ball with perfection.
