After Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma has become the captain of the Indian team. After that, he gave his best to take India to the next level. In his captaincy, India performed exceptionally well. India beat all the teams in the group stage and the semifinal stage. They were the only team to qualify in the World Cup final being unbeaten. Unfortunately, they finished the tournament as the runners-up. Rohit has done an amazing captaincy job in that tournament. BCCI is impressed by his captaincy and wants him to lead Team India in the T20 World Cup.
