India captain Virat Kohli is facing calls to hand over some of his leadership duties to Rohit Sharma after another missed opportunity in the Indian Premier League.
Sharma led the Mumbai Indians Tuesday to a fifth IPL title -- something that has eluded Kohli in the 13 editions of the tournament -- prompting calls for him to take over the captaincy of the national T20 side.
India leave for Australia this week to begin a two-week coronavirus quarantine before playing three T20s, three one-day internationals and four Tests.
Following the IPL final, former India batsman Gautam Gambhir and ex-England captain Michael Vaughan said Sharma should take over as the national T20 captain.

LIVING HIS DREAM: Rohit Saraf
As Rahul Avasthi in Anurag Basu’s ensemble film Ludo, he was trying to escape a bunch of goons with a bag full of money. As Rishi in Netflix’s Mismatched, he was trying to woo his ‘future wife’. What actor Rohit Saraf didn’t have to try too hard for, is all the love and appreciation coming his way post these projects. “It is overwhelming because I did not expect to get such an amazing reaction from the audience,” the actor tells us. From minor roles in movies such as Dear Zindagi and Hichki to playing Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ son in The Sky is Pink, to now the lead in a web series, it’s been a roller-coaster journey for the actor who was born in Nepal, brought up in Delhi but now considers himself a full-fledged Mumbaikar. The 24-year-old tells us that he thrives on appreciation because that’s what drives him to give it his all! Excerpts from a conversation:
