IND vs NZ 2021: Here’s why Rohit Sharma’s old tweet has gone viral

New Zealand tour India for a 3-match T20 series, followed by a 2-match Test series. India won the first T20I at Jaipur. The second match will be played on Friday in Ranchi and is a must-win for New Zealand. Meanwhile, a nine-year-old tweet of newly-appointed India Captain Rohit Sharma has gone viral.

The BCCI had recently announced the appointment of Rohit Sharma as captain in the shortest format of the game. Moreover, even the head coach position has a new suitor in Rahul Dravid. The series against New Zealand is the first time the duo will take charge of their roles.

Social media platform Twitter has gone berserk after a tweet from the Hitman went place.

In his tweet from 2012, he talked about how he is excited about the added responsibility to lead the team. Rohit Sharma plays for Mumbai in the domestic circuit. For the reference of the tweet, he was captaining Mumbai in a Ranji Trophy match in 2012.

Surprisingly, his first match as Indian Captain (yesterday) was played at Jaipur. His first match as Mumbai Captain (Ranji Trophy) was also played at Jaipur. Life is such a beautiful coincidence.

“Touched down in Jaipur and yes I will be leading the side, looking forward to the added responsibility :)” he expressed his feelings via Twitter on November 7, 2012.

Twitter has compared Rohit Sharma to England pacer Jofra Archer. Archer’s tweets from past years often seem relevant in the current times.

Rohit Sharma guides India to a convincing win

After failing to qualify for the knockout rounds in the recently-concluded T20I World Cup, India starts the Dravid Era with a convincing victory. Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma comfortably sailed the ship past the New Zealand bowling terror.
