New Delhi: Indian cricket team is looking new with new captain. After Virat Kohli, now Rohit Sharma will be the captain of all three formats. After relinquishing the T20 captaincy, Virat Kohli was stripped of the ODI captaincy. But after this Virat Kohli also left the captaincy of the Test. Team India is now ready with a new captain. The era of Indian cricket Rohit Sharma is beginning. Rohit Sharma is ready to return to the team after getting fit. He will return to the field against West Indies.
Rohit’s career as a captain is just starting. After this, the challenge in front of Rohit Sharma is the challenge, because in the next one year, Team India has to play not one but two World Cups. The T20 World Cup will be played in Australia at the end of the year 2022, whose schedule has been released. Whereas in February-March 2023, Team India will play the ODI World Cup in its own home.
Rohit was not in the ODI team against South Africa. India lost the series 3-0. After the defeat, there were many shortcomings in Team India. Talking about the bowling unit, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravichandran Ashwin no longer have that edge to put pressure on the front team. Bumrah also looked stunned. Young players like Mohammad Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar are ready to join the team. So, an experienced bowler like Mohammed Shami can once again be given preference in the white ball.
In the spin department too, the Indian team is once again going towards Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav. At the same time, the biggest challenge for Team India in the batting unit is in the middle order, because you have options like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul in the top. But if the Shikhar Dhawan-Rohit Sharma pair is to be trusted again, then KL Rahul will have to shoulder the burden of the middle order. Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer will also have to show responsibility in the middle order.
Virat Kohli plays a different broad of cricket. He used to lead the team aggressively. Kohli also got good results, but he could not get India the ICC trophy. Now Rohit Sharma is the captain of the team. Rohit is known to be a calm captain and is expected to lead India to the ICC trophy.
