Virat Kohli will step down as the captain of the Indian T20 team after the T20 World Cup. He has already announced this. But now the news is coming that in the coming few days, Rohit Sharma will be given the captaincy of T20 as well as the ODI team. According to reports, the selection committee will make a decision next week. The Indian selection committee will not only select the team for the home series against New Zealand. Rather, Rohit is likely to be handed over the captaincy of ODI and T20.
Kohli Announced to Step Down as Captain
Kohli had recently announced to step down as the captain of T20. But now there is every possibility that the captaincy of the ODI team will also be handed over to Rohit from his hands. According to the news of Inside Sport, senior members of the board believe that having different captains for T20 and ODI will not work.
Kohli is Still the Captain of The ODI Team
Kohli has announced to step down as T20 captain. But he is still the ODI captain of the Indian team but is being played in the UAE. Team India’s performance in the T20 World Cup has worried the BCCI and the selectors. ODI World Cup is to be played in India in 2023. And in 2022, the T20 World Cup will be played in Australia. In such a situation, the BCCI believes that there is no point in having different captains in both formats and is in favor of the same captain in T20 and ODI formats.
Rohit Sharma is a Good Choice
A senior BCCI official said that having 3 captains in 3 formats will create a lot of confusion. That the idea and direction go forward very smoothly. We feel that the Indian team should have only one captain in ODIs and T20Is and Rohit Sharma is a good option in the current plan. The selectors will make the final decision in the next meeting.
