This time Rohit Brigade is expected to play a bang

In last year’s T20 World Cup, the Indian team led by Virat Kohli could not even reach the semi-finals. During that time Team India had lost its opening matches against Pakistan, New Zealand, after which its campaign was out of track. This time the command of the Indian team is in the hands of Rohit Sharma. In such a situation, it must be seen whether he is able to end the title drought or not.
