This cricketer got the captaincy in place of Kohli
Sunil Gavaskar says that Rohit Sharma should be made the captain of the Indian team for the next two World Cups. Gavaskar says that T20 World Cup is two years in a row and Rohit Sharma should be made the captain of the team for that. Gavaskar said in the Star Sports show Cricket Connected, ‘India has the next two World Cups in front of it and in such a situation, Rohit Sharma should be given the command. One World Cup will start next month, while the second T20 World Cup is to be held next year.
Gavaskar’s big statement
Gavaskar says that Rohit Sharma should be made the captain of the Indian team for the next two T20 World Cups. You can say that there is one World Cup after another. One is starting next month and one is exactly a year from now, so obviously you don’t want to change too many captains at this point. But, Rohit Sharma will definitely be my choice for captaincy for these two World Cups.
Bet on Rahul and Pant for vice-captaincy
Gavaskar said, ‘I will go with KL Rahul for the vice-captaincy. Rishabh Pant’s name is also on my mind because he has captained Delhi Capitals very effectively. The changes that Rishabh Pant made in the bowling really impressed me. The clever way Rishabh Pant used Nortije and Rabada shows he is a smart captain and you need a captain like that.
BCCI statement on Kohli’s captaincy
Now BCCI has given a big update on Virat Kohli’s decision to leave the captaincy. On Tuesday, when BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal was asked whether Virat Kohli’s decision to step down from T20 captaincy was his own or was he forced? To this Dhumal said, ‘The board did not ask him to step down. It was absolutely his own decision. Why would we ask them to do this? He was doing a great job.
