Star Sports Network has come up with #NayaCaptainRohit promo as the Indian Men’s cricket team gets ready to face West Indies in three One-Day Internationals and as many Twenty20 Internationals at home, beginning February 6, 2022.
The promo #NayaCaptainRohit is a continuation of the network’s #BelieveInBlue narrative.
The series will be broadcasted Live and exclusive on the Star Sports Network.
Captain Sharma and his team will have a point to prove and will strive to continue their dominance at home.
A Star Sports spokesperson said, “Through the aperture of this series, we want to build a larger context to galvanise support for the Indian team as the team prepares for ICC events. #BelieveInBlue provides a perspective to have a continuing narrative that strings multiple tournaments of Team India. This is an important juncture for the Indian team as they return home to play their 1000th ODI under a new Captain. We wanted to bring forward the high emotions and support of fans across the country and the world who rally behind their captain and team and stand by them in this new era.”
The series will see the return of wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who has been out of competitive cricket for the last six months. On the batting front, Rajasthan's Deepak Hooda has received a maiden ODI call-up. For the T20I series, 21-year-old wrong ‘un specialist Ravi Bishnoi has also earned his maiden call-up.
Meanwhile, West Indies pacer Kemar Roach has received an ODI recall after being out of the side for almost two-and-a-half years. Roach is among six additions to the squad that went down 2-1 at home to Ireland earlier this month. Fabian Allen makes his comeback to the 15-man squad, with Nkrumah Bonner, Darren Bravo and Brandon King adding muscle to the batting department. Hayden Walsh Jr adds the extra spin option.
The selectors will announce the T20I squad following the completion of the England series.
