Batsmen play responsibly and often score big totals, even double centuries. Only a few batters have consistently performed at the highest level and scored the most runs. The ODI fixture of 2023 was a bit hectic compared to other years on account of cricket's biggest festival, the 13th edition of the ODI Cricket World Cup which was recently played in India. It makes quite difficult for many players to adjust their approach in every format, especially in test cricket where patience and technique play vital roles.

The Indian Captain Rohit Sharma makes his way by displaying his aggressive approach this entire year. He scored 1,800 runs in 35 matches with 4 centuries and 11-fifties. Rohit Sharma had many chances to score centuries by playing a bit passive, but he decided to set the tone of the innings by playing attacking and always putting his team ahead.

Rohit Sharma brought back the old hit-man whom we used to know and luckily he delivered his typical performances this year that too on crucial stages like the Asia cup and ODI World Cup.
