Rohit Sharma has got off to a great start as his journey and performance as India’s permanent captain has resulted in massive praise from around the cricket fraternity, and Mohammed Kaif become the next to join the long line of list of names.

Opening batsman Rohit Sharma was appointed the Indian cricket team’s permanent captain following former captain Virat Kohli’s decision to step down as India’s T20I skipper after the T20 World Cup 2021, following which, he was also stripped of his ODI captaincy too.


Sharma has got off a great start to his life as India’s permanent captain, winning all of the series since taking over the role from November 2021. The most recent success takes us back just of couple of days back only when India registered series clean sweep over the West Indies team in both the T20I and ODI series.

India have also won the currently ongoing 3 match T20I series against Sri Lanka after winning the first 2 matches. Meanwhile, Sharma has also made some changes into the team combination after that and has all turned into a success. A example of that could be promoting Shreyas Iyer to number 3 in Kohli absence and sending Jadeja to bat higher up the batting order.

Speaking on Rohit Sharma’s such decision making, former India captain Mohammad Kaif took to his Twitter account and called every decision of Rohit Sharma a ‘masterstroke’.


He also added that whatever currently Rohit Sharma is touching, is all turning into a gold, referring to the decision to promote Shreyas Iyer and Ravindra Jadeja up the batting order.

Team India currently holds a unassailable 2-0 lead in the 3 match T20I series against Sri Lanka, winning the first two matches in Lucknow and Dharamshala. The 3rd match is take place tonight, on the 27th February in Dharamshala.

Following which, India will also place a 2 Test series against the neighbouring country and Rohit Sharma will be in-charge of the Test team as well after Virat Kohli quit from that capacity following series defeat against South Africa earlier this year.
