National selection committee chairman Chetan Sharma termed Rohit Sharma the 'No.1 cricketer' in the country. He made the statement after naming Rohit the Test captain while announcing the squads for the home series against Sri Lanka. With this, the 34-year-old is now the all-format leader of the Indian team.
BCCI’s Chairman of selectors Chetan Sharma has finally opened up on the controversy surrounding Virat Kohli’s captaincy issue. Contracting Kohli’s claim, Sharma asserted that everyone in the selection meeting had requested Kohli to continue as T20I captain after the announced that he wanted to quit. Kohli had alleged that nothing of that sort happened during an explosive press conference ahead of the South Africa tour.
Chetan Sharma is remembered for two primary reasons – being the first Indian to pick up a hat-trick in one-day internationals, and also for, infamously, being hit by Javed Miandad for a last-ball six at Sharjah.
