Apart from his batting, Rohit has also impressed everyone with his outstanding captaincy throughout the tournament, winning all 9 out of the 9 matches Team India played in the league stage of the ongoing edition of the prestigious cricket quadrennial.

Now, the men in blue under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma will lock horns with New Zealand in the first semi-final of the tournament at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Wednesday, November 15. Interestingly, India were the first team in the league stage to make it to the knockouts of the tournament with 7 consecutive wins in 7 matches before defeating South Africa and the Netherlands in the last two league matches.
