Following the 2021 T20 World Cup, Rohit took over as T20I captain, beginning with the home series against New Zealand. He then further became a captain in the ODI format for the Indian Cricket team. Rohit Sharma has missed many bilateral series as captain due to his frequent injuries. He was unable to lead the Men in Blue in his first ODI series as a full-time captain. He also did not play in the Test series.

Pandya has never captained in Ranji trophy cricket. But he has led Team India to four victories in T20 Internationals. The next match for India in limited overs cricket will be against Sri Lanka on January 3, and the squads for the series will be announced by the end of next week.
