MUMBAI: Many are arguing that Rohit Sharma should be given the captaincy of India’s fixed-overs cricket team. Many are of the opinion that Kohli should only lead the Test. Rohit led the Mumbai Indians to four titles in the IPL. Kohli, on the other hand, has never led Royal Challengers Bangalore to the title. This fact is the basis for saying that Rohit will be the captain.
Former chief selector Kiran More is of the same opinion. More says Kohli will have to resign as captain from any format after the World Test Championship final. In his words … ” I think Rohit will be the captain of India very soon. Kohli, who grew up under Dhoni, is a talented captain. But Kohli also needs to think about how long he will continue to captain in fixed-over cricket. A decision in this regard is expected after the tour of England.
Split captaincy will also be effective in Indian cricket. India’s senior players need to think about the future of the team. It is difficult to lead in all three formats. It is not enough to lead, you have to perform well. Kohli completes all this beautifully. But there will come a time when Kohli says this is a lot. That day, Kohli will tell Rohit to take over, ”More said.
He added that the split captaincy would only benefit India and that the decision to hand over the captaincy to Rohit would be “very honorable”. “If Rohit leads well, he deserves the captaincy,” More said.
