Two potential captains for WHITE BALL CRICKET are being considered by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The ODI and T20 teams for India will now have a responsible captain.
InsideSport has learned that the plan will be put into action beginning in January with a home series against Sri Lanka. India will take on Sri Lanka in 3 ODIs and 3 T20s, with unique captains for each team. The ODI team will continue to be captained by Rohit Sharma, while the T20 team will be captained by Hardik Pandya.
Although it’s too soon to say for sure, we are considering whether choosing separate leaders for the ODI and T20 squads is the best course of action. This will assist in distributing the workload among several people.
“In light of the ODI World Cup being held in India in 2023, we need a new approach for T20s while still maintaining consistency. The strategy can start working in January. One of the top BCCI officials said, “We will meet and make final calls.”
A New Year means a Fresh Start for Indian Cricket
- India will meet Sri Lanka in a three-match ODI and three-match Twenty20 series.
- Australia and New Zealand will be the next opponents in the HOME series.
- It’s likely that Hardik Pandya will be named the T20 captain permanently in January.
- India will be captained by Rohit Sharma in ODI and TEST games.
Will Rohit Sharma be bumped down?
The potential appointment of two captains makes it quite evident that Rohit Sharma would lose his T20 captaincy as a result of the Indian team’s dismal performance at the T20 World Cup.
“Losing the captaincy is not an issue. For Rohit, it’s about the future and reducing his workload. You can see that these men are not growing younger.” The BCCI official continued, “We think the T20 squad needs a fresh approach and new legs.”
A performance review meeting has been scheduled, according to InsideSport, which was confirmed by another senior BCCI official earlier on Saturday.
Rahul Dravid, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli, a former captain, will all be invited by BCCI to the meeting. The BCCI Secretary will call the meeting, and the team’s appalling performance will be evaluated and discussed.
“We have scheduled a meeting with them. We are shocked by what transpired in the semifinal; certainly, adjustments are needed. But no choice would be made without taking into account their viewpoint. The future plan of action for the Indian T20 Squad would be decided with the input of Rohit, Rahul, and Virat,” according to the top BCCI official.
India’s upcoming T20 World Cup performance review?
The selection committee, directed by Chetan Sharma, has not performed very well, and BCCI is not too pleased either. Also being evaluated will be how they performed, and Chetan will most likely be replaced.
It is unclear if the Chairman of the Selection Committee has also been invited to the meeting for the Performance Review or not.
