Will 34-year-old Rohit Sharma Replace 32-year-old Virat Kohli As The Next T20 Captain?


Indian Cricket Team Next T20 Captain: The current captain of the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli, announced on Thursday that he will step down as the captain of India in the T20 format after the T20 World Cup to be played in the United Arab Emirates and Oman next month. After this decision of Kohli, it is believed that vice-captain Rohit Sharma can be given the captaincy of the T20 team. Rohit, who has won the title for Mumbai Indians five times under his captaincy in the IPL, has a great record in T20 as a captain. Apart from this, he has also captained 19 T20 matches for India.

Questions raised after BCCI’s statement

Actually, Board of Control for Cricket in India President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah have described this decision of Kohli as a decision taken in view of the future roadmap. In such a situation, the question is, how can it be a good decision for the future to make 34-year-old Rohit the captain instead of 32-year-old Kohli.

Kohli is known for his excellent batting as well as excellent fitness. But this is not the case with Rohit. Rohit is not counted among the players with strong fitness. Looking at his age, this question is also arising that how many more years he will be seen playing for Team India.

Rishabh Pant or KL Rahul should get the responsibility

Many former cricketers believe that the Indian Cricket Board should think ahead of Rohit while thinking about the future. Many former cricketers have spoken of handing over the captaincy to Rishabh Pant or KL Rahul. Both Rahul and Pant can give their services to the team as young players and for a long time. At the same time, Rohit will be able to play cricket for India only for two or three years. In such a situation, if Rohit is made the captain, then it will not be called a decision taken keeping in mind the future.
