Rohit Sharma will begin a new phase as the captain of the Test team in the first Test against Sri Lanka at Mohali on Friday, March 4. It is also a landmark occasion for Rohit’s predecessor Virat Kohli, who will be turning out in his 100th Test. Rohit, who is now India’s all-format captain, said that he aims to build on the gains made by the team in Tests under Kohli’s reign as leader. India are currently placed 5th in the World Test Championship after losing their last Test series against South Africa 2-1 earlier this year.
