Rohit Sharma was given the captaincy of the T20 and ODI side late last year and the charge of the test team early this year. Rohit won the series against New Zealand, West Indies and Sri Lanka in the T20 format. He also led India to a clean sweep in the 2 match test series against Sri Lanka. He suffered a loss in form during the IPL where he failed to register a single half century. Mumbai Indians for the first time at the bottom of the table. Rohit Sharma will also be seen leading India in the Asia Cup and also the T20 world cup later this year in Australia. Rohit who has 5 titles as the IPL captain will want to replicate the success with the men in blue.
