In Indian cricket, there has been a demand for division of captaincy for a long time and there is constant discussion about Rohit Sharma should be given the captaincy of limited overs.
The demand to share the captaincy between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli has been hooting for a long time.
There has been a lot of discussion about captaincy in the Indian cricket team for the last two years. In the three formats, Virat Kohli, who is captaining Team India, has demanded many fans and fans of cricket to reduce some weight. Especially in the ICC tournament win, Team India’s failure and Rohit Sharma (Kohli) and Kohli’s record of winning the IPL title has been constantly being ridiculed. There is a demand to implement it in India, citing the examples of worldwide captaincy divided according to the three formats. This formula has not yet been implemented in Team India, but former cricketer and selector Kiran More believes that it is likely to happen after the England tour.
The current captain of the Indian team, Virat Kohli, also took command of the Test format in 2015 and ODI-T20 formats from 2017. During this time, the Indian team has had successes in winning matches and series, but lost in the final of ICC Champions Trophy and then disappointments in the World Cup semi-finals. Apart from this, the difference in the captaincy of Kohli and Rohit Sharma and the manner of behavior in the field is also said to be important for the change.
Rohit can get a chance soon
At present, no such decision has been taken by the Board of Control for Cricket in India and no indication has been received. It is clear that in the Test, Kohli will be the captain, as well as in the T20 World Cup and ODI team, he will also have command. However, former wicketkeeper and chief selector More believes that the board may soon think about it and Rohit could get the captaincy. More said while talking to India TV,
“The vision of the board takes all these things forward. I am sure Rohit Sharma will get a chance soon. Virat Kohli is a clever captain and has played under the leadership of MS Dhoni. He himself will also think how long he wants to captain the ODIs and T20s. You will get to read a lot about these decisions after the England tour. “
2 titles to Rohit Sharma
Rohit Sharma has captained the Indian ODI and T20 team on a few occasions. Under Rohit’s captaincy, India won the Nidahas Trophy and Asia Cup 2018 titles. Apart from this, under the captaincy of Rohit, Mumbai Indians have won the IPL title 5 times in 8 years, while Kohli’s bag is still empty handed. However, Kohli has chances to win two big tournaments this year. The Indian team will play the final of the World Test Championship next month, while the T20 World Cup is to be held in India at the end of the year and the team would like to win this title.
