Opener Rohit Sharma is likely to replace Virat Kohli as captain of India’s one-day international (ODI) and T20 teams.

The change in leadership is likely to take place after the T20 world cup.

Virat Kohli is the current India skipper across all formats of the game.

“Virat himself will make the announcement. He is of the view that he needs to concentrate on his batting and go back to becoming what he’s always been — the best batsman in the world,” The Times of India quoted sources as saying.
