Moreover, even Virat Kohli has gone on to step down from the T20 captaincy. And Rohit Sharma has gone on to become the new T20 captain of team India. The men in blue also went on to win the T20 series against New Zealand recently.

It was the first assignment of Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma under the new roles. Moreover, the men in blue dominantly won the series by a scoreline of 3-0 in the end. It was a brilliant start to a new era for Indian cricket.

However, the Indian team is currently focused on the test series. The first test match was an unfortunate draw between India and New Zealand. Moreover, the Kiwis went on to grind the Indian bowlers for the last wicket.

But India will desperately be looking to win the second test match as a lot of things are at stake. The men in blue have not lost a test series since 2012 in India. And they would want to retain the record at any cost against New Zealand.

Sourav Ganguly said, “He is shifting to Bangalore for the next three years from Hyderabad just to serve Indian cricket. It’s remarkable. Of course, his earnings will drop but yeah, he has agreed.”

He further added, “His wife and kids will also shift. His children will now study in a school in Bangalore and there will be a massive change as a family to shift base. It’s not easy unless you are so devoted to Indian cricket.”
