After reports of Rohit Sharma taking charges as team India captain replacing Virat Kohli, surfaced online on Monday, fans came up with interesting memes and posts on Twitter.
The change would probably take place after the T20 World Cup which is scheduled to begin in UAE on October 17.
Multiple reports suggest that Virat Kohli, the current Indian captain across all three formats, is going to step down from his responsibilities in ODIs and T20Is to focus on his batting. However, Kohli will remain the Test captain of team India.
This is not the first time, the news of such nature has been floated. Have a look at the tweets below
Kohli’s responsibilities across three formats have affected his batting, as he has not managed to hit a century across three formats since November 2019.
While the change could perhaps become a reality in the coming days, the fans of Sharma and Mumbai Indians have already accepted the Hitman as their new captain.
Kohli’s failure to lift a major ICC trophy since taking over the charge of the team is one of the biggest criticisms of his captaincy in ICC events. Recently, in June, India lost in the final of the World Test Championship as well which further fueled the talks.
In 2017, Kohli took over the white-ball cricket captaincy from former Indian skipper M.S. Dhoni who will travel UAE with team India as a mentor for T20 World Cup.
There were also fans who were excited for Rohit Sharma taking charge of team India.
