Rohit Sharma confirmed his decision in the press conference afterwards 

This was my last [T20I] game as well. No better time to say goodbye to this format. I've loved every moment of this 

I started my India career playing this format. This is what I wanted, I wanted to win the cup," said Rohit Sharma.  

I wanted this badly. Very hard to put in words. It was a very emotional moment for me.
