Less than a week has passed since India’s elimination from the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament and debates are already in swing concerning Rohit Sharma to become India’s next limited-overs skipper. The voices further gained momentum with few questionable tactics of Virat Kohli in the semi-final game against New Zealand.
As a result, the debate has attracted former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer who expressed his wish to see the opening batsman leading India in the next edition of the mega-event. The domestic stalwart opined that time has come for Virat to give up his captaincy in the white-ball cricket, suggesting Rohit to take that role.
Discussing his demand, the 41-year old added that Rohit is a shrewd skipper which was evident with his Mumbai Indians show in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Moreover, solid batting performances of the Maharashtra born batter will allow him to fetch the respect a captain needs. Nevertheless, the stance of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on this matter is yet to be seen.
