Since the 2021 T20 World Cup, India have had as many as eight captains, which includes Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
BCCI’s selection committee had clarified that they are grooming a few players who can replace Rohit in the future. Sourav Ganguly gave a blunt response to critics on the captaincy changes.
Rohit was named India’s all-format leader after Virat left the Test captaincy following a series defeat in South Africa.
BCCI had mentioned that KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah are the top contenders for captaincy roles in the future.
India have handed captaincy duties to Ajinkya Rahane, KL Rahul, Rishbah Pant, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya and Shikhar Dhawan.
“Rohit Sharma is now the all-format captain. If he gets injured, there has to be someone who can replace him. Now we have many options who can lead the side if someone is rested or injured. India now have a pool of 30 players who can play for the country.”
