Opener Rohit Sharma has now become the captain of the ODI team after the T20 team. There was speculation for the past several days that Rohit might be appointed the captain of the ODI team in place of Virat and on Wednesday, the BCCI made all things true by handing over the captaincy of the ODI team to Rohit. In such a situation, Hitman is seen targeting Virat Kohli for not winning the ICC trophy.
The 34-year-old right-handed batsman while interacting with renowned journalist Boria Majumdar said, “When you are playing you have to achieve the best. In cricket it’s an ICC tournament, so whatever run or century I score or whoever it doesn’t matter, the only thing that matters is winning the championship.”
If we try to understand this point of Rohit Sharma, then it will be seen that Virat Kohli has scored many centuries in the ODI format, but he could not win a single ICC trophy under his captaincy. In such a situation, this statement of Rohit can be seen as targeting Kohli.
Significantly, the name of Virat Kohli is counted among the most successful ODI cricket captains of India. Under Kohli’s leadership, the Indian team played 95 ODIs, winning 65 and losing 23 matches. During this, India’s win percentage in the ODI format was 70.43.
