Vikram Rathour, Team India's batting coach, has expressed his admiration and respect for captain Rohit Sharma in a heartfelt post following India's victory in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. 

Rathour shared a post on Instagram and praised Sharma's exceptional leadership and batting performance, which were pivotal in ending India's 11-year wait for an ICC trophy and securing their first T20 World Cup win since 2007.

Rathour posted a couple of photos of himself posing alongside Rohit and wrote that the India captain's action inspired others as well. 

Praising Rohit for his leadership, He wrote: "If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and achieve more. You are a leader. 🙏🤗 well done skipper."

It is worth mentioning that the recently-concluded T20 World Cup was most-probably Rathour's last assignment as India's batting coach.

Under Sharma's captaincy, India remained undefeated throughout the tournament, winning three of their four group games, with one match against Canada was abandoned due to bad weather. In the Super 8s, they triumphed over Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Australia. 

He not only contributed with his brilliant captaincy but also notably scored 92 runs against Australia. His remarkable fifty in the semifinal against England helped India secure a spot in the final. 

Rohit Sharma after winning the T20 World Cup 2024, announced his retirement from T20Is. He made this announcement in the post-match press conference after the final. He scored 4231 runs in 159 games with the help of a record 5 centuries and 32 half-centuries. 

Rohit is also the second-highest run-scorer in the T20 World Cup with only Virat Kohli ahead of him. Meanwhile, he is not the only Indian player to retire from T20Is after the World Cup win. Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja have also brought down the curtains on their T20I careers.
