There is talk of making ‘Hitman’ Rohit Sharma the captain after the T20 World Cup-2021. It is believed that if the team does not win the title under Kohli’s captaincy, then Rohit Sharma will replace him.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) recently announced the team for the T20 World Cup to be hosted by it. Due to Kovid-19, Virat Kohli has been made the captain for this tournament to be held in UAE and Oman.

For the past several years, he has often been compared with his vice-captain Rohit Sharma. Some former cricketers like Rohit Sharma’s cool style more than the aggressive captain on the field. Some even called his captaincy influenced by MS Dhoni. The biggest reason for this has been the success of Mumbai Indians under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma in the Indian Premier League.

Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, Team India has participated in 3 ICC tournaments so far, in which the team has lost the title match twice, while once it was defeated in the semi-finals. The 2017 ICC Champions Trophy was defeated by Pakistan, while New Zealand defeated New Zealand in the title match of the ICC Test Championship. Earlier, Team India was eliminated after losing to New Zealand in the semi-finals of the 2019 ODI World Cup.
