Rohit Sharma's 3-Year-Old Tweet Goes Viral After Being Named As India's Permanent Test Captain


Opener Rohit Sharma was named as India’s permanent Test captain on Saturday (February 19) as the BCCI announced the squad for the upcoming T20 and Test series against Sri Lanka.

Rohit has been handed the Test captaincy weeks after Virat Kohli resigned following the series loss in South Africa.

Notably, Rohit is now India’s captain in all three formats, as he was given the white-ball captaincy earlier.

ODI
… and now the test

Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma’s three-year-old tweet soon went viral after the batsman was made the Test captain. The opener had tweeted on September 1, 2018 after a fan asked about the quote describing him.

The tweet read, ‘Throw me to the wolves and I am back leading the pack’.

Earlier on Saturday, All India Senior Selection Committee chairman Chetan Sharma said that Rohit is the number one cricketer of the country.

“As far as Rohit Sharma is concerned, he is the number one cricketer of our country, he is playing in all three formats of the game. The important thing is how we manage Rohit, cricketers manage their bodies From time to time we will be in discussion with Rohit. If such a big cricketer is leading the country, we as the selection committee want to prepare further captains, and it will be tremendous to prepare them under Rohit, Chetan Sharma said during a virtual press conference.

We will groom future captains under his leadership, let’s go Let’s hope everything goes well and if things go how we want them to be, that would be really cool.”

“If Rohit continues to captain for a long time, it will be really good for us. But no one can predict that, as long as Rohit is available and fit, he will be the Test captain. When he wants to rest, So we’ll give him the rest,” he said.
