Rohit Sharma had a brilliant outing as he was adjudged Man of The Match and Man of The Series. He was the leading run-scorer in the tournament. India will be next playing Bangladesh in a home series starting from November 3. Kohli is rested for the Twenty20 tournament, so fans will get to see Rohit Sharma in captain's role.
