India vs England: Rohit Sharma loses first match as captain, falls short of world record

After the Men in Blue were beaten by England in the third T20I on Sunday at Trent Bridge, Team India captain Rohit Sharma just missed Ricky Ponting’s world record for the most consecutive victories as captain at 20.

Rohit Sharma remained unbeaten in 19 straight games after succeeding Virat Kohli as India’s permanent captain, but that incredible streak came to an end as India lost the third T20I match against England by 17 runs.

In addition, Rohit had won 14 straight T20 International matches while serving as captain, but that winning streak also ended with the loss to England. The third and final game of the series was lost by India by 17 runs after they egregiously fell short of the necessary total of 216 runs.
