Putting an end to the discussion on whether Rohit Sharma will lead the Indian team during the upcoming away tour, the men's selection committee announced India's squad for the series in South Africa.

Along the expected lines, Rohit will not lead the side for the T20Is and ODIs with Suryakumar Yadav donning the skipper's role in T20Is and K L Rahul leading the side in the ODI series.

Rohit along with Virat Kohli will return for the Test series. The BCCI stated that Rohit and Kohli had requested the Board for a break from the white-ball leg of the tour.
