New Delhi. The Indian Premier League is the most popular and most watched league of T20 cricket. Despite this, the Indian team has not been able to achieve success as expected at the international level. India won the T20 World Cup for the first and last time in 2007. Since then, 7 T20 World Cups have been played, but the title remained away from India. When the Indian team under the leadership of Rohit Sharma goes to America and West Indies for the upcoming T20 World Cup, its eyes will be fixed on ending the long wait for the second title.

T20 World Cup was played for the first time in 2007, when India became champion under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. After this, India could reach the final of the T20 World Cup only once in 2014. Then he had to face defeat against Sri Lanka. This drought of titles is visible in other formats as well. India last won the ICC trophy in 2013. Then he won the Champions Trophy.

India last won the ODI World Cup title in 2011. After this, the Indian team has lost the final of the ODI World Cup once and the World Test Championship twice. It was not easy for the cricket fans of the cricket-crazy country with a population of 1.4 billion to digest the defeat of the World Cup 2023, as Team India reached the final by winning all its 10 matches.

The Indian team will now start its campaign in the T20 World Cup under the leadership of Rohit Sharma from June 5. This could also be the last T20 World Cup for Rohit and Virat Kohli. Rohit has been a part of the Indian team in all the T20 World Cups so far, while Kohli, who made his debut in this tournament in 2012, will participate in it for the sixth time.

Virat Kohli has scored 1141 runs in 27 matches in the tournament at a strike rate of 131.30 and an average of 81.50. Rohit has scored 963 runs in 39 matches at a strike rate of 127.88. Rohit and Kohli have not played any T20 International for India since the defeat against Australia in the semi-finals of the 2022 T20 World Cup.
