India T20I captain Rohit Sharma's 12-year-old tweet resurfaced and took Twitter by storm. Sharma, who has been appointed India's T20I captain after Virat Kohli stepped down, will lead the side in the three-T20I series against New Zealand starting Wednesday.
Sharma first captained Mumbai in a Ranji Trophy game in 2012 in Jaipur. The original tweet was about that.
