Ahead of the home series versus West Indies, Rohit urged fans to forget about the Test captaincy as the focus is on limited-overs cricket.

“Workload management is important and we need to forget about Test Captaincy now, our focus is limited over series now,” he explained.

“I’d like to wish the India U-19 team all the very best for the Final. They’ve put in a great effort so far. The chat I had with them earlier was about the challenge of playing multiple teams in an ICC Tournament. You need to plan well,” Rohit wished the very best to the Yash Dhull-led U-19 Indian side ahead of the World Cup final versus England.

After the humiliating debacle in South Africa, India would look to start afresh in their 1000th ODI. At home, India would start overwhelming favourites against the Keiron Pollard-led side.
