After taking a continuous break from international cricket, India’s captain Rohit Sharma will be back in action in the ODI series against Sri Lanka. Rohit is currently the skipper of all three formats for Team India. But, there are some speculations that the Indian Cricket Board will be adopting the split captaincy because of the workload.
Rohit didn’t have a good year in terms of his captaincy as the team under him lost the Asia Cup and the 20-20 World Cup in 2022. It will be interesting to see that who will lead the team in the upcoming T20 series against New Zealand as the Pandya-led team have already won the T20 series against Sri Lanka.
Here are the three reasons, why Rohit should lead the team in T20I
3. Leadership experience in Indian T20 League
Rohit’s elevation to India captaincy has much to do with his success in the Indian T20 League as captain of the Mumbai Franchise for close to a decade. Rohit’s captaincy qualities include tactical decision-making, man-management skills, clear communication with teammates, and backing players in their rough times.
Under his tenure, Sharma also led Mumbai to 5 cash-rich league titles, the most than any other team. Hence, Sharma owns a lot of experience as a T20I skipper. On the other hand, the stand-in T20I skipper Hardik Pandya led Gujarat in the major league in only 1 season.
