Watch: Rohit Sharma signals Ravi Shastri to send MS Dhoni at No 3

Rohit Sharma played a captain’s innings to steer India to a 88-run win over Sri Lanka in the second Twenty20 International at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore on Friday.

In the absence of regular skipper, Rohit has taken the responsibility of leading an international side in his stride and done quite well. He has been praised by former India players for the way he has handled his bowlers and captained the side and Rohit’s pro-active captaincy was on showcase again in Indore right after he was dismissed following his brilliant knock.

Rohit smashed 118 off 43 balls to decimate the Sri Lankan bowling attack, notching the joint-fastest T20I hundred. But what caught the eye was the fact that even after his blitz, Rohit was in captain mode and when asked by coach Ravi Shastri who to send in next, Rohit signalled for MS Dhoni.

Even VVS Laxman, who was in the commentary box at the time, praised Rohit his decision to bring Dhoni up the order.
