India T20 Captain – ICC T20 World Cup 2022: WC final on November 13 will mark an end to a World Cup…

India T20 Captain – ICC T20 World Cup 2022: WC final on November 13 will mark an end to a World Cup cycle. BCCI has already set plans in motion for the next cycle keeping in mind the T20 World Cup 2024. One big part of the puzzle is Rohit Sharma. InsideSport understands that all-format captain Rohit Sharma is unlikely to stay on as T20 captain for the next ICC T20 WORLD CUP. As part of BCCI’s transition plan, Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant besides KL Rahul will be groomed post 2023 ODI WC. Virat Kohli, meanwhile, will be asked to focus on ODI and Tests and could play T20Is only in big series and tournaments to keep him fresh. Follow T20 World Cup LIVE Updates on InsideSport.IN.

Rohit Sharma is already 35 while Virat Kohli is 34. Both stalwarts of Indian cricket do not have a lot of years left in them. As both are crucial for India’s all three formats, there will be a lot of rotation in place for T20s. Following the T20 WC, the selectors and the BCCI honchos will hold a discussion with both Rohit and Kohli to clear the air.

“It’s not that they will be forced to quit one format. But one has to understand that they are in mid-30s and are two very crucial players for India. They need to be rotated and rested constantly for big series and ICC tournaments. But one cannot rotate a captain too many times. Since, T20s will not be in focus, we have to phase out Rohit gradually when someone like Hardik, KL or Rishabh are ready to take the charge,” a senior BCCI official told InsideSport.

India T20 Captain: Will Rohit Sharma step down from T20 captaincy after WC?

  • No, Rohit Sharma will continue to be India’s all-format captain till 2023 WC.
  • However, Rohit Sharma will focus more on ODIs and Tests in 2023 leading up to 2024.
  • Hence, the likes of Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant will share the captaincy role in T20s.
  • After ODI World Cup next year, BCCI and selectors will discuss the captaincy options with Rohit Sharma.
  • With injuries and fitness concerns, it is unlikely that Rohit Sharma will be kept on as the captain for 2024 World Cup.
  • Instead, Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant are being groomed to lead. Hardik has already impressed selectors.

“Hardik and Rishabh have both done well as captains. Both are captains in IPL and have plenty of times to prove. Hardik has already proven in IPL. But there is KL too and he is also learning with Rohit and Virat around. But all these talks about change in captaincy will be done only after 2023 WC,” the official said.

What happens to Virat Kohli? – When Kohli was going through his worst phase, the idea was that T20 WC will determine his place in the T20 squad. Kohli has not only proven his doubters wrong, he has hit them out for a 6. But despite his supreme fitness, he is 34. To continue playing all three formats, he will have to give a lot more than the rest.

InsideSport understands that Kohli will not hang up his boots in T20Is after World Cup in Australia. Instead, the selectors will only pick him in T20s for major tournaments and big series against England, Australia or South Africa. Instead, he will focus on ODIs and Tests with World Cup 2023 just a year away.

“The selection committee has started this transition phase consciously as T20Is are not priority in the year 2023. ODIs are and so some players in certain slots could be tried out and seen if they are fitting in those slots. T20Is again become important in 2024 in World T20 year,” a BCCI source told PTI.
