Rohit Sharma-Virat Kohli: Virat Kohli has been appointed captain of the Indian ODI and T20 squad in place of Virat Kohli. The first series will be against South Africa.
Rohit Sharma has been appointed as the regular captain of the India ODI and T20 squad. On Wednesday, December 8, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) snatched the ODI captaincy from Virat Kohli and handed over the reins to Rohit. With this, the coincidence of the month of December, which Rohit has proved to be the greatest in his career and personal life, seems to have once again revealed his luck.
December is a very special month for Rohit from captaincy to batting. Rohit captained Team India for the first time in ODIs and T20s. Rohit then captained the Indian team in the series against Sri Lanka in the absence of Virat Kohli.
As captain in December 2017, Rohit set a joint record for the fastest century at T20 Internationals in a series against Sri Lanka. Rohit equaled David Miller of South Africa by completing a century off just 36 balls.
December is very special for Rohit Sharma not only on the field but also in his personal life off the field. On 13 December 2015, Rohit Sharma married Rhita Sajde. With this he started a new part of his life. Not only this, Rohit, Rhita’s daughter was also born on 30th December 2018. This means that overall, December has become one of the most exciting and memorable months of Rohit’s career.
