After the defeat against Australia in the World Cup 2023 final, the Indian Cricket Board i.e. BCCI has decided to make a plan for the next four years. For this, BCCI will hold a meeting with Team India captain Rohit Sharma and chief selector Ajit Agarkar. During this time many questions can also be asked to Rohit.
What is Rohit’s future in white ball cricket and who will be the future captain of Team India? There can be discussion regarding this also.
Rohit Sharma has not been a part of the T20 International cricket team for the last one year. According to the report, he has made it clear to the selectors that he is not disappointed by not being selected in the team.
According to the TOI report, sources have also confirmed that Rohit Sharma has already told the selectors that he has no objection to his name not being considered for the T20s. The selectors are keen to invest in young players. How does Rohit see his ODI career? Rohit will be almost 40 by the time of the next ODI World Cup in South Africa in 2027. The next big ODI tournament will be the ICC Champions Trophy in 2025, which is scheduled to be held in Pakistan. At the same time, India has to play only 6 ODI matches in the next one year.
A BCCI source said, “Before the ODI World Cup, Rohit had told that he had no objection to his name not being considered for T20. The selectors have been investing heavily in youth in T20 International cricket for the last one year. With the T20 World Cup being held in June next year, they are not ready to deviate from that strategy.
The BCCI source further said that the selection committee has clearly said that it wants to prepare such players who can play together for a long time. With Shreyas Iyer back in Tests and Shubman Gill batting at No. 3, there will be little scope for Rahane in the team. KL Rahul can also be considered for Test matches. He can be a backup wicketkeeping option.
