Consequently, after India‘s poor performance in World Twenty20, the Indian team was expected to be uprooted and now in the home series against New Zealand, Rohit Sharma has been given the leadership of the team while KL Rahul has been appointed as his deputy.

Virat Kohli had announced that he would step down as captain of the team after the ICC T20 World Cup and rumours were disseminating that Rohit Sharma would get the captaincy.
