Sehwag’s big statement, ‘Rohit can be removed from the captaincy of T20’


New Delhi. Former India opener Virender Sehwag believes that Rohit Sharma can be rested from the captaincy of the T20 team so that he can manage his workload better. Rohit has not been able to play since becoming the captain due to injuries and workload management. Sehwag said in an interview to PTI, “If there is someone else’s name in the mind of the Indian team management as T20 captain, then Rohit can be removed from the captaincy. “This will enable them to manage workload and deal with mental fatigue better, especially considering their age,” he said.

Regarding the India and England series, Sehwag said on Sony Sports, “With the new captain in T20, Rohit will be able to take a break and freshen up for Tests and ODIs.” Sehwag, however, said that if the team management wants only one captain in every format, then Rohit is the best option. He said, ‘If the Indian team management wants to have the same captain in all three formats, then I think Rohit Sharma is the best option’

India have experimented a lot ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia later this year but Sehwag says his picks for the top three batsmen are Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul. Currently Virat Kohli bats at number three.

Sehwag further said, ‘India have many attacking batsmen in T20 but I see Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul in the top three order. Rohit and Ishaan have left and right hand coordination and Ishaan and Rahul will also be a good pair in the T20 World Cup. He praised fast bowler Umran Malik and said that he will also be a part of the Indian attack along with Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami.
