Rohit Sharma has been a consistent performer for the Indian cricket team when it comes to limited overs cricket in the recent times. With a record shattering century against West Indies, he proved once again why he is considered to be a run machine in the T20Is and ahead of the series against Australia, even his opponents are singing praises of the India opener.

Glenn Maxwell, in an interview to directhit.com.au, said that the 31-year-old makes batting look effortless. He also said that Rohit has got the highest score of 264 runs in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and “you can’t stop him.”

Rohit brought up his century in 58 balls. He had earlier slammed centuries against South Africa, Sri Lanka and England. Rohit Sharma’s blitz in Lucknow handed him a bagful of records and helped him get past Indian captain Virat Kohli yet again.
