The Indian cricket team, captained by Virat Kohli, is going to face South Africa in a very big series this month. This series can also prove to be the last series in Team India’s jersey for many veteran players. Especially the captaincy of Virat rests on this series. The BCCI has already made it clear that one mistake will take away the captaincy of Virat.
Virat will have to make a single mistake
On the South Africa tour, all eyes will be on Virat Kohli as it can also prove to be the last series for him as an ODI captain. It is believed that the ODI team will be announced later as the series is to start from January 19. A decision is also to be taken on the future of Virat Kohli as ODI captain. The BCCI has already made it clear that if this series is not decided in the interest of Team India, then Virat will be removed from the ODI captaincy. Virat has already left the captaincy of the T20 team.
This player will become the new ODI captain
India have three ODIs to play in South Africa and now the biggest question is whether the country needs two captains in the white ball (limited overs) format, which could lead to a clash of ideas in the team. Rohit Sharma is already the captain of the T20 team and in view of the 50-over World Cup to be held in 2023, BCCI is discussing to have a new captain in the limited overs format.
A BCCI source told PTI, “It is finding it difficult for Virat to retain the ODI captain at the moment. There are very few matches this year so ODIs are not of much importance. In such a situation, there may be a delay in taking a decision in this regard. In such a situation, most of the people associated with this decision feel that this responsibility should be handed over to Rohit so that he can get the necessary time to prepare the team before 2023.
Recently appointed new T20 captain
Team India’s new T20 captain has recently been chosen by veteran opening batsman Rohit Sharma. Let us tell you that just after the T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli left the captaincy of this team. Rohit’s fans were waiting for a long time that he should be appointed as the captain of the team. Now there is a constant discussion that Rohit should be made the new captain of ODI after T20.
