India batsman Rohit Sharma has replaced Virat Kohli as the T20I captain while former skipper Rahul Dravid has been appointed as the new head coach for the side.
Rohit has now explained Kohli’s role in the side as the batsman and has said that the right-hander is someone who leaves an impact every time he is out there in the middle.
“Virat Kohli's role won't change. He will keep on doing what he has been doing for the team for so many years,” said India's newly appointed T20I captain Rohit Sharma in a virtual press conference.
"He is a very important player for the team. Whenever he plays, he creates an impact. He always leaves his mark on the match,” he added.
India are scheduled to play a three-match T20I series against New Zealand at home which is scheduled to begin on Wednesday in Jaipur. Kohli though has been rested for the fixtures.
“Everyone has a different role in the team. And those change based on whether you are batting first or chasing so based on that, roles will keep on changing. Everyone is open to that and I'm sure when Virat comes back, it will only strengthen the team,” Sharma said.
