India captain Virat Kohli may step down as limited-overs captain, and Rohit Sharma, who is presently the vice captain might take over. Speculations of this sort have been circulating for quite some time. It is expected that Kohli would make the major news shortly.
According to sources, Kohli struggles to manage three different types of cricket matches. He has wanted to concentrate more on his batting performance and return to being the greatest batsman in the world, which he has always been. On the other side, Rohit has also served as Kohli’s stand-in skipper on occasion and done well.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced Team India’s 15-member squad for the T20 World Cup 2021. The squad featured R Ashwin, the off-spinner, who returned to the white-ball side after a lay-off.
MS Dhoni was also named as the mentor for the team during the course of the tournament.
