NEW DELHI: All-rounder Hardik Pandya will, in all probability, lead India within the upcoming T20I collection towards Sri Lanka, scheduled to start out from January 3 in Mumbai, in response to BCCI sources.
The second and third matches of the collection can be held in Pune (January 5) and Rajkot (January 7).
It is known that Rohit Sharma‘s thumb damage may take some extra time to heal.
However, there isn’t any readability whether or not he (Rohit) will step down from the T20 captaincy or the matter placed on maintain in the intervening time.
While it has been clear since India’s T20 World Cup semi-final exit in Australia that there can be a change in guard as soon as the brand new choice committee takes over, there was no formal announcement but.
Also regardless of hypothesis, it may be confirmed that there was no dialogue on India’s T20 captaincy within the Apex Council assembly.
“The matter wasn’t even on the Apex Council agenda and it wasn’t mentioned on the discussion board. Only the choice committee can take a name on captaincy,” a BCCI official aware of improvement advised PTI on the situation of anonymity.
However, India’s T20 construction could possibly be completely revamped and all-rounder Hardik, who has proven his management acumen for the Gujarat Titans, is taken into account an excellent substitute.
While Rohit has had a thumb dislocation plus webbing damage, he can be dashing to get match for the Sri Lanka collection.
There are solely six T20Is in a 12 months the place ODIs will get desire as a result of 50-over World Cup and, with Rohit not within the scheme for the T20 World Cup in 2024, it’s only crucial that he may skip the T20Is except he decides on quitting the format altogether.
A BCCI previous guard, who has been an office-bearer, had a suggestion for President Roger Binny and Secretary Jay Shah.
“The first T20I is on the Wankhede, which is Rohit’s house floor. Why do not the selectors and the BCCI secretary (Shah) give him a farewell T20 match and there’s a swish changeover of the management baton?” he recommended.
However, within the case of ODIs, Hardik’s health and workload administration can be scrutinised earlier than he’s thrown into the deep finish.
