Rohit Sharma Stepping down from Captaincy: Rohit Sharma was appointed as the captain of the Indian team in all three formats last year. First, he got the command of T20 and ODI. At the same time, when Virat Kohli left the Test captaincy, he was also made the team India captain in the red ball.
However, now former Indian opener Virender Sehwag has given a shocking suggestion to Rohit regarding the captaincy. He said that Rohit might consider leaving the captaincy of the Indian team in the T20 format.
Since becoming the full-time captain last year, Rohit Sharma has missed many India matches for various reasons. Sometimes he got injured, and sometimes he was unavailable for selection due to a break.
Sehwag feels that if Rohit needs a regular break, he might consider giving the T20 captaincy to someone else so he can freshen up for the other two formats.
Rohit Sharma Stepping down from Captaincy?
If the Indian team management has someone else in mind as the captain in the T20 format, I think Rohit (Sharma) can be relieved, and the following things can be taken care of going forward. One will allow Rohit to manage his workload and mental fatigue, considering his age.
Second, once someone new is appointed as the captain in T20Is, it will enable Rohit to take a break and refresh himself to lead India in both Tests and ODIs.
It should be Rohit Sharma to lead in all three formats – Virender Sehwag
Different captains are rarely seen in Indian cricket. Sehwag also says that if the board does not want different captains, then Rohit is currently the best option to lead in all formats. he said,
If the Indian think-tank still wants to go ahead with the same policy, which is to let one man lead India in all three formats, then I still believe that Rohit Sharma is the best person.
