The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday confirmed that Rohit Sharma would take over the reigns of the Indian ODI team from Virat Kohli. Rohit will begin his captaincy tenure in the 50-over format during the South Africa tour, where a three-match series takes place in January 2022.

The opening batter is now India’s white-ball captain and was also named Kohli’s deputy in Test cricket, replacing Ajinkya Rahane.

Rohit played in his first T20I series as a full-time skipper against New Zealand last month, registering a clean sweep over the Black Caps (3-0).

Meanwhile, fans have come up with mixed reactions after BCCI decided to appoint Rohit as captain in ODIs.
