Captaincy is a huge honour says Rohit Sharma

Captaincy is a huge honour says Rohit Sharma

As recently stated by MSK Prasad, the Chairman of Selectors, Sharma, in all probability, will open the batting with Shikhar Dhawan starting with the first ODI at Rangiri, Dambulla on August 20. Most thrilling for him was his appointment as the vice-captain. "You've got to be innovative and you've got to play different kind of shots to get maximum results". Giving him company were K.L. Rahul and Axar Patel. Ten years ago, I was only thinking of playing for India. Even now when I stand here being the vice-captain, it feels pretty good. "It's an honour", Rohit said. That's the opportunity I always wait for, to get on to the field and learn something. "Here I have to play a little behind-the-scene role".

Elevation to vice-captaincy means this series is going to be more special for Rohit.

Having played worldwide cricket for over ten years, Sharma finally got a taste of vice-captaincy in the Champions Trophy earlier this year, and was officially named deputy to Virat Kohli for the Sri Lanka series. It has been up and down but that's how it is for any sportsman. "I will still continue to learn and that is the greatest part of this sport, that you learn everyday and there is something to look forward to everyday".

Being benched for Tests can be a dampener but Rohit has made peace with that segment of his career. "But again, it all depends on the team dynamics, what the captain and the coach want to play", he offered. "You've got to accept the fact and move forward". That's what I have done. You can not sit and waste time. We have the talent, we have the skill. "(Winning) 3-0 outside India is a great achievement". Today, I got to learn something playing those sweeps and reverse sweeps. I am not thinking too much about it. Now, I have realised it can not be just about going out there and slogging every time, you've got to understand the situation and conditions. Every addition to your armoury is a good thing, and what better place than coming here and doing it.

Rohit's highest, world-record score in ODIs (264) was scored against Sri Lanka but he refused to take his opponent lightly.

"You got to understand the situation, the conditions and that's what I have learnt over these years with so many coaches around".

"The squad in Champions Trophy was a very good side".

Talking about their opposition, Rohit said that Lanka are a really good team who performed exceedingly well during Champions Trophy, however, adding that his side are fully focused on playing consistence cricket which they have been playing over the few years.
