Rohit Sharma will captain India in T20 World Cup for the first time
Last time Indian team played under the captaincy of Virat Kohli
New Delhi. The Indian cricket team has reached Australia after 15 years with the dream of becoming the T20 World Cup champion again. The command of the team is in the hands of Rohit Sharma. Even though his captaincy speaks in domestic cricket, but in the World Cup, Rohit will come to captaincy for the first time. The captaincy record of this stalwart, who has played all the T20 World Cups for India so far, has been excellent. This title can give a new dimension to his career.
Rohit, who won the T20 World Cup title for India in 2007 as a player, now wants to repeat the same feat as a captain. Last time when Team India lost against Pakistan, he was playing as a player. The captaincy was in the hands of Virat Kohli. This time Kohli is playing as a player and Rohit will take over the captaincy. The pair have more experience than the rest of the team playing in this tournament and can end the 15-year wait.
Rohit’s captaincy record is excellent
Till now Rohit Sharma has captained 45 T20 Internationals for India as a captain. In this, his winning percentage is 77.77. Under his captaincy, the Indian team has won 35 matches. Whereas there have been 10 matches where the team lost. Rohit likes T20 a lot and has also expressed it by making Mumbai Indians champion 5 times in the Indian Premier League. He has left behind Virat Kohli’s record of 30 T20 International wins and is now eyeing 42 wins under Mahendra Singh Dhoni as captain.
Babar’s captaincy record
Babar has captained in T20 International matches in 59 matches for Pakistan. Out of this, his team has won in 36 while in 18 it has to face defeat. Babar is the captain to win the most T20 matches for Pakistan. The win percentage is 66.66, which although looks less than Rohit, but Babar has captained in more matches.
