After reports of Rohit Sharma taking charge of captainship from Virat Kohli in white-ball cricket started doing rounds, Indian cricket fans came up with interesting reactions on Twitter. Some reports claim that Rohit Sharma might replace Kohli as the skipper for at least in T20Is after the conclusion of ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
Virat Kohli might step down from the captaincy in the limited-overs format to concentrate on his batting. Currently, Kohli is the skipper of the Indian team in all three formats. However, too many responsibilities look to affect his batting, as he has not managed to hit a century across three formats since November 2019. He also largely failed to hit big knocks during the recent England vs India 2021 Test series.

Kohli has so far led India in 95 ODIs. Under his leadership, team India have won 65 matches and lost 27 games, accounting for a win percentage of 70.43. He has also led the team in 45 T20Is, winning 27 games and losing 14. On the other hand, Rohit Sharma has led the team on 10 occasions in ODIs. He has won 8 games and lost just 2. In T20Is, Rohit Sharma captained team India in 19 games, winning 15 and losing 4.
Notably, Rohit Sharma has been far more successful as a skipper in the Indian Premier League. As a captain of Mumbai Indians since the 2013 season, he has led Mumbai Indians to 5 titles, most than any other team. Mumbai Indians won IPL titles in the 2013, 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2020 seasons. On the other hand, Kohli has led Royal Challengers Bangalore since the 2012 season. However, he has not managed to bag a title for the team under his captaincy.
