Ravi Shastri, whose tenure as Team India’s head coach ended with a win, wants Rohit Sharma to be the next captain in the T20Is.
“In Rohit, we have got a capable guy, he has won so many IPL titles. He has been the vice-captain of this side for a long time,” Shastri told reporters.
Even the outgoing skipper Virat Kohli has confirmed Rohit Sharma as his successor for the captaincy in the shortest format of the game.
Shastri also spoke in favour of the split captaincy. “Split captaincy is the need of the hour due to bubble fatigue, the amount of cricket played these days. Players need to be rotated. You don’t get to see your parents for 6 months,” said Shastri.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli also spoke about India’s campaign in the ICC T20 World Cup.
“I know we have not gone far in this World Cup, but we have had some good results in T20 and enjoyed playing together,” Kohli said. “It’s a game of margins … you talk about two overs of cricket with intent in the first two games and things could have been different. We were not brave enough.”
