Rohit Sharma became the only second Indian captain after MS Dhoni to guide the side to the T20 World Cup win. In the final, Men in Blue defeated South Africa by a margin of seven runs to end their 13-year-old World Cup drought. However, amidst the celebrations, Sharma dropped a shock-bomb on the entire nation by announcing his retirement from the T20I format

The veteran batter followed the footsteps of his teammate Virat Kohli as the two bid adieu to the format. Sharma helped India add one more ICC trophy to their cabinet and bowed out of the format with the most T20I runs.
