There has been talk of Rohit Sharma being given the command of Team India for a long time. After the T20 World Cup 2021, Rohit can be given the command of T20 and ODI team instead of Virat Kohli. Rohit has not proved himself as a captain in the IPL itself. Rather, in international matches too, he has led Team India to victory in 80 percent of the matches. For this reason he is one of the trusted players of BCCI.
Talking about Virat Kohli, he has not yet won the IPL title apart from the ICC trophy. At the same time, Rohit Sharma has given Mumbai Indians the title of IPL 5 times. Rohit has captained 29 matches for Team India so far. In 23 the team has won, while in only 6 they have lost. Rohit Sharma has been seen encouraging the players to perform well even under pressure.
Have won 15 T20 matches
Rohit Sharma has led Team India to victory in 15 T20 matches under his captaincy. He is the third most successful captain for India in T20. MS Dhoni has won 41 and Virat Kohli has won 27 T20 matches. Rohit has captained in 19 T20 matches so far. They have lost in 4 matches. Talking about ODIs, under the captaincy of Rohit, the team has won 8 out of 10 matches. Lost only 2 matches.
Won the Asia Cup title
In the T20 Asia Cup in 2018, the team came under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma and also captured the title. The team defeated Bangladesh by 3 wickets in the final. Team India has to play ODI World Cup at home in 2023. Before this, Rohit will get a chance to prepare the players according to his own. So the board also wants to give them enough time for preparation.
