Rohit Sharma begins a new chapter of his splendid cricketing journey as India's Test captain on Friday when the two-match series against Sri Lanka kicks off, as predecessor Virat Kohli makes a landmark 100th appearance in the purest format. Rohit is now at the helm across all formats, succeeding Kohli who drove India up the world rankings and brought about a radical shift in the levels of fitness and fielding. The spotlight will be on Kohli who shocked the cricketing fraternity and fans alike when he quit as Test skipper following his 99th Test at the end of India's 2-1 series loss in South Africa in January.
