 “It’s Not About Personal Records

Rohit emphasized the importance of teamwork over personal milestones:

> “When I took over as captain, my focus was on fostering a unified mindset. Cricket is a team sport, and it’s about what we, as 11 players, can achieve together to win trophies, not about individual records.”


 Challenges Under Rohit’s Captaincy

Despite Rohit Sharma’s leadership, India has faced some tough losses in major tournaments:

World Test Championship Final 2021-2023: Lost to Australia.

ODI World Cup 2023: Despite being favorites, India fell to Australia in the final.

These setbacks haven’t deterred Rohit, who remains committed to leading the team to victory.
