T20 World Cup 2024 is scheduled to be held in West Indies and United States of America.
India, despite their stellar performance leading up to the ODI final, faced a tough challenge in a closely contested match against Australia, ultimately falling short by six wickets.
Gautam Gambhir, acknowledging Hardik Pandya’s recent role as the T20I captain, stands firm in his preference for Rohit Sharma to take the reins in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. He emphasizes the crucial need to include both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in the squad for the forthcoming tournament.
“Absolutely, both [Kohli and Rohit] need to be picked, both should be picked. I really want to see Rohit Sharma as the captain in the T20 World Cup. Yes, Hardik Pandya has led in T20Is, but my preference is still for Rohit Sharma to captain in the T20 World Cup,” expressed Gambhir in an interview with Sportskeeda.
Gambhir highlights Rohit Sharma’s leadership potential, especially evident in his impressive batting display during the recent World Cup.
The shifting dynamics of captaincy in Indian cricket continue to captivate attention, leaving fans and experts eagerly anticipating the unfolding narrative as the team readies itself for future challenges.
