The Indian team has to play a series of 3 T20 and 3 ODIs against Sri Lanka in their own home. The Indian team has been announced for this. Rohit Sharma has been rested from the T20 series. Hardik Pandya has been handed over the captaincy in his place.

Rohit Sharma Captaincy: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the team for the home ODI and T20 series against Sri Lanka. Taking some tough decisions, BCCI has shown the way out to many big name players. This home series will start from January 3, the first T20 match will be played in Mumbai.

Captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant have been shown the way out of the T20 series by the BCCI. In the T20 series, star all-rounder Hardik Pandya has been given the captaincy in place of Rohit. Suryakumar Yadav has been given the responsibility as the vice-captain. In such a situation, the question has already started coming in the mind of the fans, has Rohit Sharma’s captaincy really gone? Will Rohit be seen captaining or in the next T20 series against New Zealand? Officially the answers to these questions are not yet clear. The reason for their exclusion has not yet been disclosed by the BCCI in the press advertisement, but it is being speculated that Rohit and Kohli would have been rested but vice-captain KL Rahul would have been dropped due to his poor form. Has been done.

Whether Rohit’s captaincy is gone forever or not, it will be known in the upcoming T20 series against New Zealand. In the next series, if Hardik Pandya is made captain despite Rohit Sharma being fit, then it will definitely be known that Rohit’s leaf has been cut from T20 cricket. In the current situation, but it will not be right to say this, even before this many times Pandya and many other players have been seen becoming captain in the absence of Rohit.

Hardik can be the next captain after Rohit

After handing over the T20 captaincy to Hardik, he has also been made the vice-captain in the ODI series against Sri Lanka, so it is understandable that after Rohit Sharma, BCCI wants to see Hardik Pandya as the next captain.

Rohit Sharma suffered a thumb injury while playing in an ODI on Bangladesh tour in December. Rohit was seriously injured while fielding. He has been rested in such a way from the T20 series. Rohit could not even play the Test series against Bangladesh due to the same injury.

The Indian team was eliminated from the group stage itself in the 2021 T20 World Cup. After that Virat Kohli resigned from the captaincy as soon as the tournament was over. Rohit Sharma was made the captain in the same position. Regular captain Rohit Sharma’s record since November (2021) has been excellent.
