Twitter Reacts As Rohit Sharma Gets Appointed As India’s ODI Captain

On Wednesday, BCCI made two important announcements. Firstly, the Test squad for the three-match series against South Africa was selected. The board also announced that Rohit Sharma would serve as India’s T20I and ODI captain from now on. In this article, we take a look at how Twitter reacted after Rohit Sharma gets appointed as India’s ODI captain.

Rohit Sharma gets appointed as India’s ODI captain

Before the 2021 T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli had announced that the event would be his last as India’s T20I captain. After the competition, Rohit Sharma was announced as the captain. He even led in the T20I series against New Zealand at home. BCCI has now decided that Rohit would also take over the ODI captaincy duties from Virat Kohli. It should be noted that Virat had mentioned that he would be quitting only as the captain of the T20I Team. BCCI has not made an announcement regarding the vice-captaincy duties for the ODI Team. KL Rahul was Rohit’s deputy in the T20 series.

Nevertheless, as many experts felt, it would be wise to hand over captaincy duties of the entire white-ball formats to one individual. With this, Rohit Sharma will have two immediate assignments to complete. While the T20 World Cup will happen this year, the important task is to do well in the 2023 50-over World Cup that will take place in India.


Twitter reacts to the development

At the moment, the Indian Cricket Twitter is largely divided into two sections. While one group contains fans of Virat Kohli, the other group consists of Rohit Sharma’s fans. Hence, with the announcement of Rohit Sharma becoming ODI captain having been made, Twitter has gone into a frenzy. There are opinions emerging out of every corner regarding the decision taken by the BCCI. Below, we take a look at a few Twitter reactions in this regard:
