Virat Kohli has been removed from the captaincy of the Indian one-day cricket team. Hitman i.e. Rohit Sharma, who won Mumbai Indians the title 5 times in IPL, has been made captain by the National Selection Committee till the 2023 ODI World Cup. The selection committee took another big decision. He has dropped Ajinkya Rahane, who is facing Alona as the vice-captain of the Test team, due to his poor performance.
India has played 10 ODIs under his captaincy, while 8 have won. Lost in two. It can be gauged from this that how much better the record of Team India is under his captaincy. During this, Rohit has scored 543 runs at an average of 77.57. He has two centuries to his name including a double century. His best score is 208 not out, which he scored against Sri Lanka in the match played on 13 December 2017 in Mohali.
