Ravi Shastri has said a big thing on Virat-Rohit’s T20 future
How is Team India for the 2024 T20 World Cup? also told
New Delhi. The next T20 World Cup is to be played in 2024. Former head coach Ravi Shastri has said a lot about the kind of team India should field for that tournament. Shastri believes that the time has come for Team India to move ahead of Virat and Rohit Sharma in T20 and young players get a chance in the team immediately.
Ravi Shastri said on ESPNcricinfo’s show, “Young players should be given a chance in whatever first T20 series Team India plays after IPL. Players like Yashasvi Jaiswal, Jitesh Sharma and Tilak Verma should be given a chance immediately. Players like Rohit and Virat Kohli have proved themselves. What they are, it is not hidden from anyone. But, now I would like to go with the young players. So that players like Virat and Rohit stay fresh for ODI and Test cricket. However, when Shastri was asked the question, what if players like Rohit-Kohli and KL Rahul want to play T20 cricket?
Current form should be the basis of selection in T20: Shastri
Ravi Shastri said in response to this question, “There is still more than a year left in the 2024 T20 World Cup. The criteria for selection in Team India should be only the current form. One year is a long time. Players can be in form or their form can go. Experience, fitness will also matter in team selection. Who is the most talked about player at the moment, who is consistent in his performance, who is scoring runs? All these aspects also have to be seen.

‘Select specialist players for each number’
Shastri is also of the opinion that specialist players should be selected for each position. No player should be forced into a role he has not played before and a good mix of left and right handed batsmen is also necessary in the team. Because whichever team has such a combination in IPL, it is doing well.

Hardik should be made full time T20 captain
Ravi Shastri once again advocated making Hardik Pandya the permanent captain of Team India in T20. He believes that seeing the way Hardik has prepared the Gujarat Titans team, it seems that he can choose the right people for the right positions for Team India as well.
According to the former Indian coach, you can understand by looking at Hardik’s Gujarat Titans team. Hardik has fixed players for every number and with this thinking he can take Team India forward in T20.
