Rohit became captain last year

Rohit had taken over the captaincy across all formats from Virat Kohli in early 2022 following the Test series defeat in South Africa. Rohit Sharma first became the captain of T20, then ODI and finally Test team. Under his captaincy, the Indian team defeated Australia in the Test series earlier this year. Now Team India has to play in the final against the same Kangaroo team.

Every captain wants to take India forward: Rohit

A day before the final, Rohit was asked during the pre-match press conference about the legacy he wants to leave as captain. To this the Hitman said, "Whether it was me or anyone else, even the previous captains, their role was to take Indian cricket forward and win more and more matches and win more and more championships." It will be the same for me too. I want to win the match. I want to win the championship. That's what you play for."
