Rohit Sharma wins first Test series as captain: Key stats
Rohit Sharma led India to a 2-0 Test series win against Sri Lanka on Monday. India claimed a dominant win against Sri Lanka in the Day/Night Test at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. Rohit won his first Test series as India's full-time captain. Notably, India have not lost an international game since Rohit took charge in all three formats. Here are the key stats.
- Virat Kohli left India's T20I captaincy after the T20 World Cup.
- The 33-year-old was stripped of captaincy duties in ODI cricket soon after, while he stepped down from the role in Test cricket.
- India are unbeaten in international cricket since Rohit has taken charge of white-ball sides.
- They routed NZ (T20Is), WI (ODIs and T20Is), and SL (T20Is and Tests) in the period.
Since November 17, 2021, India have won 14 internationals under Rohit. They are yet to lose a single game. India registered clean sweeps in each of Rohit's first series as full-time captain (T20Is: beat NZ 3-0, ODIs: beat WI 3-0, Tests: beat SL 2-0).
As of now, Rohit has led India in 43 international games. India have won 37 and lost just six matches under him. In 2018, Rohit helped India win the Nidahas Trophy, a T20I tri-series involving India, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh. A few months later, India won the Asia Cup in Rohit's leadership. And now, he has won his maiden Test series as captain.
Rohit has a formidable record while leading in One-Day Internationals. Under him, India have won 11 of 13 ODIs so far, losing just two. India are yet to lose an ODI series in the leadership of Rohit.
Rohit is arguably the greatest batter in white-ball cricket. Over the last two years, he has stamped his authority in Test cricket too. He has a slew of records across formats. As captain, Rohit has scored 1,698 runs from 43 internationals at an average of 43.53. He has a remarkable strike rate of 120.68. The tally includes four tons and 10 half-centuries.
