Latest Cricket News: What a journey Rohit Sharma has taken. While Virat Kohli’s limited-overs captaincy has come to an end, it is now time to welcome a new leader to the Indian white-ball setup, one who does not have much time on his hands and must perform quickly. The Hitman’s rise in all aspects of the game now demonstrates his attitude and fighting abilities.
Soon after the Board of Control for Cricket in India selected Rohit Sharma as the new ODI captain after naming him as the T20I captain, a 10-year-old tweet from the Mumbai Indians skipper surfaced, demonstrating how far the Mumbai kid has come.
The tweet came after he was left out of India’s squad for the 2011 ODI World Cup, which the Men in Blue eventually won.
“I’m devastated that I won’t be able to compete in the World Cup.
I need to get out of here…but that was a major setback…any thoughts? “In a tweet dated January 31, 2021, Rohit stated.

In a recent interview, Rohit Sharma, the recently designated white-ball captain, discussed the importance of Virat Kohli, the team’s batter, and how his leadership skills may still be useful.
“A batsman of Kohli’s calibre is always required in the lineup. It’s insane and ridiculous to have a 50+ average in the T20 format. With his expertise, he has undoubtedly batted and saved India out of numerous tight circumstances “On Backstage with Boria, Rohit stated.
“It is necessary to have batsmanship of his calibre and style. He’s also still the team’s leader. You don’t want to miss out on all of these things combined. That’s something you don’t want to overlook. His presence is critical to the team’s success “Added he.
The Hitman’s first assignment as a full-time ODI captain will be a three-ODI tour of South Africa.
