New Delhi. Rohit Sharma will debut as the captain of the Indian T20 team in the first match of the 3-match T20 series against New Zealand (India vs New Zealand) on Wednesday. Rohit has commanded the Indian team on several occasions, but for the first time he will lead the Indian T20 team as a full-time captain. After the T20 World Cup 2021, Virat Kohli left the captaincy of T20 and Rohit Sharma was given the responsibility in his place.
This new journey of Rohit will start from Jaipur on Wednesday. This match will be played at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. Jaipur is very special in terms of captaincy for Rohit Sharma. There is also a very special connection between Rohit Sharma’s captaincy and Jaipur. Actually 9 years ago in Jaipur itself, Rohit Sharma was the captain of Mumbai for the first time.
It is the matter of 2012, when Rohit’s place in Team India was not confirmed and he was sharpening his weapon in domestic cricket. At the same time, Rohit took over the command of Mumbai and he captained Mumbai for the first time at the KL Saini ground in Jaipur.
After 9 years, Rohit is going to take over the command of the Indian T20 team as full-time captain at the MSS ground in the same city. Along with this, Rohit’s 9-year-old tweet is also going viral. He had made a tweet after reaching Jaipur in 2012 and expressed happiness over captaining the team. Along with Rohit, head coach Rahul Dravid will start a new journey today. Dravid was appointed the coach of the Indian team after the end of Ravi Shastri’s tenure with the T20 World Cup 2021.
