The Indian cricket team led by Rohit Sharma defeated New Zealand on Sunday to win the three-match T20I series 3-0. When it came time to celebrate the victory by lifting the trophy, captain Rohit won the hearts of the fans by giving it to the two debutants Venkatesh Iyer and Harshal Patel in the series. Let us tell you that this tradition is being followed in the Indian dressing room since the time of MS Dhoni as the captain of the team. Indian batsman Virat Kohli continued to follow this rule even while being the captain and now Rohit Sharma has carried it forward from there.

While this was not the first time Rohit has followed Dhoni’s rule, during the 2018 Asia Cup final, the Mumbai cricketer handed over the trophy to Khaleel Ahmed, the then newcomer to the team, after defeating Bangladesh.

Dhoni started this tradition

Former Indian captain MS Dhoni, while captaining Team India, laid the foundation of this beautiful tradition from the 2007 T20 World Cup. After becoming the T20 World Champion for the first time, Mahi presented the trophy to the team’s young batsman Robin Uthappa.

Recently, after the T20 World Cup 2021 played in the UAE, Rohit Sharma was appointed the captain of Team India in this format. Let us tell you that Virat Kohli had announced before the start of the tournament that he would step down as the captain of the T20 format after this mega event. Rohit Sharma’s record as T20I captain has been phenomenal and he has a win percentage of 81 per cent for India.
