Rohit Sharma and Deccan Chargers: A tale of two ends

Rohit Sharma entered the IPL spectrum as a Deccan Chargers player in 2008. In the all-star DC side, which had the likes of Herschelle Gibbs, Andrew Symonds, Shahid Afridi, VVS Laxman, Chaminda Vaas, etc. and was led by Adam Gilchrist, it was the 20-year-old Rohit Sharma who stood out back in 2008. Deccan Chargers finished at the bottom in the inaugural IPL season but bounced back brilliantly to win the title in 2009 when the tournament was held in South Africa.


Sharma's stint with Deccan ended in 2010. Following that he was roped in by Mumbai Indians and the rest as they say is history. As an MI player, Rohit Sharma quickly came to the forefront. He was given the captain's position in 2013, and as captain, he has lifted a record 5 IPL trophies. As for the Deccan Charger, the franchise went into transition in 2013, and a change in ownership brought into existence Sunrisers Hyderabad.
