Rohit Sharma is third on the all-time charts, scoring 4,207 runs during the last 10 editions of the IPL.
Rohit is far more consistent in IPL than in ODIs
Kohli is one of the most consistent players right now.
RCB‘s players know that most of the time, their captain will score and he will score big.
Rohit might have been a little inconsistent in ODIs but he has a flawless record in the IPL.
The last edition was Rohit‘s worst campaign so far, as he managed just 333 runs in 17 games.
Batting approach is very much different
Virat is the one who will anchor the innings for RCB and comes in to bat at number three or sometimes opens the innings.
Rohit Sharma, comes to bat at number four. As a power hitter, Rohit propels his team to a higher total in the death overs.
IPL’s best players right now
King Kohli holds the record for the most runs in a season.
While Rohit Sharma is the only player to win 4 IPL titles, three of which came with Mumbai Indians and one with Deccan Chargers.
These two men are the hottest properties in the Indian Premier League right now and both are equally good at what they do.
However, our pick is Kohli over Sharma.
