Rohit Sharma

Since the 2022 T20 World Cup, Rohit Sharma has not participated in a Twenty20 International. In the meantime, Hardik Pandya appears to be the clear favorite to captain the team in the shortest format.

Who should captain India at the 2024 T20 World Cup, Rohit Sharma or Hardik Pandya? That is one significant query that is being asked a lot right now. Since the 2022 T20 World Cup, Rohit hasn’t participated in a Twenty20 international match. In the meantime, Hardik Pandya appears to be the clear favorite to lead the shorter format. Hardik Pandya has a history of injuries, though. The BCCI selectors invited Rohit Sharma to be the captain of the Twenty20 international team prior to the India Tour of South Africa.

Despite missing the white-ball portion of the Tour. Rohit Sharma is still qualified to captain India in the T20 World Cup in 2024. Gautam Gambhir’s perspective on the matter is excellent.

Rohit Sharma

According to the 42-year-old former player. If Rohit is playing well, he ought to captain the Indian side in the 2024 T20 World Cup.

Rohit Sharma should be heading the T20 World Cup if he is playing well. If not, the person who is not playing well shouldn’t be selected for the T20 World Cup. Being a captain comes with duties. You become captain after first earning a spot on the team as a player. Gautam Gambhir said in a podcast with ANI that a captain should have a permanent spot in the starting eleven, and that spot should rely on form.

When deciding which players to leave off the squad. The 2011 ODI World Cup winner stated that form should be the only consideration and age should not be taken into account.

The sole factor that should determine whether a player is selected or dropped should be form, not age. Although selectors have the authority to decline a player’s selection. A player’s decision to retire is ultimately up to him. No one can take away his bat or ball. According to him, form comes first.

The ‘Men in Blue’ relied heavily on opening batter Rohit, who had an incredible ODI World Cup 2023. The 36-year-old finished the event with the second-most runs scored. He scored 597 runs at a strike average of 125.94 in 11 innings, which became the benchmark for India’s innings in matches.
