Rohit Sharma will definitely be the first name on the team sheet as the skipper of the side and he has been in good form in the last few games of the T20 World cup 2021. He has some staggering records for India in the format and he will have the opportunity to make up for the failure against New Zealand in the Super 12 stages as well.
