Today, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) uploaded pics of Rohit Sharma addressing the India U-19 team. The BCCI wrote in the post:

“Priceless lessons. #TeamIndia white-ball captain @ImRo45 made most of his rehab time as he addressed India’s U-19 team during their preparatory camp at the NCA in Bengaluru.”

The series was Rohit Sharma’s first expedition after being promoted to vice-captaincy in the extensive format. Sharma, who took over as India’s T20 International (T20I) skipper after the 2021 T20 World Cup, was also recently appointed their captain in ODIs.

According to a recently released video by BCCI, Rohit spoke about Kohli’s stint as captain and said:

“He has put the team in a position where there is no looking back. Those five years that he has led the team, he led from the front every time we stepped onto the park. There was clear grit, determination to win every game. That was the message to the entire squad and we had a great time playing under him”.

Sharma also spoke about what he would bring to the table as captain and added:

“I have had very little opportunities to lead Team India but whenever I have gotten an opportunity, I have tried to keep one thing in common, which is clear communication to the players.”
