The India`s white-ball captain Rohit Sharma, is all set to lead the team in the upcoming limited-over series against West Indies which includes three ODI`s and three T20I matches which will be played in India. Rohit will lead the team as a full time white ball captain in the series against WI.
Recently during a press conference before the West Indies series, Rohit Sharma has seen clarifying his thoughts as who will be the next Test captain for India.
“There is time for that (Test captaincy), let us just focus on limited overs (series), which is in front of us. My focus is only on the West Indies series, the three ODIs and three T20s. “In this bubble life, we have to rotate players for workload management,” he said.
“This work-load management is a serious thing and it is not that we just speak about it. Considering the number of matches we are playing, staying continuously in the bubble, travelling in COVID time, it is important that we give many players a chance, keep rotating.”
Rohit Sharma has great success in IPL as a Mumbai Indian captain, now it`s time for him to probably lead the side in red ball format also but with the kind of fitness issues he have it`s difficult for him to lead the side as he gets injured every now and then.
In case you are not ardent cricket follower and doesn’t know why Test captaincy question was asked to Rohit Sharma it was due to Kohli who step down as skipper of India in the longest format of the game after Men in Blue lost the series against SA by 2-1 where they were considered favourites to series on SA soil for the first time.
