I don't know when I will captain India again, says Rohit

Indore: Rohit Sharma wants to savour every moment of his brief stint as India captain, wondering when he would again get a chance to walk out with the team sheet in future.
Rohit's brief tenure as stand-in captain will come to an end with the final T20 International against Sri Lanka tomorrow as Virat Kohli will be back in the hot seat for the South Africa tour after a month-long break.
"Since I am leading the side for the first time, there was pressure and there will be pressure when we play next match in Mumbai. I don't know when will I captain the side again, so every minute spent on ground is important for me," a pragmatic Rohit said after hitting the record equalling 35- ball hundred in the second T20 International against
Sri Lanka.
He has led Mumbai Indians to IPL treble but this stint has made Rohit realise how tough it is to captain the national team with te burden of expectations from billions of people.
"There is lot of pressure, especially after first match in Dharamsala. We were in such a position that we were on the verge of getting all out on our lowest score," he said.
"I thought a lot about my captaincy and team and that it is very difficult. We are representing 140 crore people and there is lot of pressure of that," he said.
