IND vs AUS 2017: It’s an Honour to be Vice-Captain, My Job is to Help Captain – Rohit Sharma
After spending a total of ten years in international cricket, Rohit Sharma finally got his due when he was appointed as the vice-captain of Indian cricket team in limited-overs cricket.
The only man on the planet to score two double centuries in ODI cricket, went past the likes of Ajinkya Rahane and R Ashwin to get the post, which he is enjoying at present,
“It’s an honour. My job is to help Virat in the field. He is the captain and whenever he looks up around, I should be around to complement him and help as much as I could,” Rohit told PTI.
It was a major concern, as IPL was the only tournament where he had to show his form so as to make a comeback for ICC Champions Trophy, but an injury to KL Rahul meant the competition was over and Rohit along with Dhawan went onto open the innings for India once again.
Commenting on the injury layoff, the ODI vice captain said that it’s always difficult to make comebacks and they are much difficult than said,
“Comebacks are not at all easy. After a major surgery, the difficult part is to conquer the inner demons. It’s all in the mind. Only an individual can overcome his fears. My batting may look easy to the eye but trust me, it’s not that easy,” he added.

Further commenting on the upcoming series against the Aussie, he played down the talk of this being an inexperienced side due to the absence of Mitchel Starc and Josh Hazlewood,
“Of course, Starc is a quality bowler and his presence makes a difference but most of the Aussie boys have played IPL and are familiar with Indian conditions. They are a quality side and we can’t take them lightly,”.
