Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli drew curtains and retired from the shortest format of the game after India won the T20 World Cup 2024 against South Africa. Now, the young Indian cricket team is all set to take the ground against Zimbabwe in a five-match T20I series. 

Ahead of this series, Indian captain Shubman Gill appreciated the efforts of the two Indian veterans and called them his idols. He also mentioned that it is difficult to replicate the legacy of the two players. 

The players finished as the top two scorers of the format, helping India register several memorable wins over the years.
