New Delhi: After Virat Kohli’s decision to leave the T20 captaincy, the way has been cleared for Rohit Sharma to become the new T20 captain, but there is a reason that can make the hitman disappointed soon. Actually, it does not seem possible for Rohit Sharma to get India’s ODI captaincy.
Why will Rohit not be happy?
The way for Rohit Sharma to get the T20 captaincy is clear, but considering his age, it is difficult for him to get India’s ODI captaincy. Rohit Sharma is currently 34 years old and ODI as a youth
Rohit Sharma hardly gets a chance as a captain. As far as Virat Kohli is concerned, he can continue the captaincy of ODIs till the 2023 ODI World Cup. The 2023 ODI World Cup will be played in India itself, which Virat Kohli will do his best to win.
Rohit’s number will come late
By the time Rohit Sharma’s captaincy number comes in ODI cricket, he would have been 36 years old. In such a situation, BCCI would not like to give ODI captaincy to Rohit Sharma at the age of 36. Rohit Sharma may become the T20 captain, but it is difficult for him to become the ODI captain. Rohit Sharma’s T20 captaincy will also not last more than four years, because by then he will be 38 years old.
BCCI Targets Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul
Virat Kohli got the captaincy of Tests at the age of 27, while he got the command of ODIs and T20s at the age of 29. Virat Kohli has got a lot of time to enjoy his captaincy. Maybe Rohit didn’t get that much time. In such a situation, the target of BCCI will be to prepare Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul as new captains. If India has to make a new captain then KL Rahul is a good option. He has performed well. In England also his batting was very good. He is doing well at the international level in IPL as well as 50 overs cricket.
