Rohit said on India’s captaincy
Rohit said, “Now the opportunity has come again, then I will try to do well and we will win the match.” Captain Virat Kohli has been rested from the series against Bangladesh and Rohit has been given the command of the team. Rohit said that it is an honor for him to lead the team.
He said, ‘These things are not in our hands. Be it one or 100, it is a matter of honor. I have already captained the team before and I have a good experience of it. I do not think how long I have to remain captain. Whenever I get a chance to captain the team, I enjoy it.
Rohit also refused to speak on the future of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He said, ‘I have not heard anything about all these things. You are the one telling all these things.
