“We play lot of cricket, so there will be injuries and workload management, so we have to rotate players,”

“When he became the coach here, we met and sat together in a room for a while and decided how we want to take this team forward,”

“He was pretty much on the same thought process as me. That made it easier for me to give out a clear message to the boys because the coach and captain always need to be on the same page for the team to move in the same direction. One thing we have decided and have in common is we want to send the right messages and we don’t want to create any confusion in the group”

Virtually everything that Rohit tried to explain above explains everything as we can see in the recent few matches that the team is making a lot of changes inside their teams, giving a lot of rest to their players. Also assigning different captaincy to different players. The likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant and others.
