Rohit Sharma can be seen captaining the Indian team in the T20 World Cup next year. Rohit Sharma’s T20 record as captain is amazing. Under his captaincy, the Indian team won the Asia Cup in 2018. Apart from this, he has also proved his captaincy in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Rohit Sharma has captained the Indian T20 team in 19 matches, out of which the team has won 15 and lost in 4.

Former India wicketkeeper Saba Karim feels that Rishabh Pant may have been selected in the T20 World Cup squad but he is still an incomplete batsman and needs to work on his batting in the T20 format. Karim has said on a YouTube channel named ‘Khelneeti’ that Pant will have to play in the IPL in the same way as he plays in the Indian team. He said it should not happen (with the strike rate being low in the UAE). I am not part of the coaching staff. So I hope Pant will do well not only as a wicketkeeper but also as a batsman. Looking at what I saw in the first half, I liked his approach to the game. When I spoke to him, I had said that the way you play for India and enjoy it, you have to do the same in IPL.
Former Indian pacer Ashish Nehra has said that Hardik Pandya is such a player who changes things very fast. He also said that Hardik’s form is going through a change right now. Nehra said that even though Hardik Pandya doesn’t fulfill his full quota of 4 overs, Mumbai India should try to take his help for 2-3 overs regularly. He said that it is important to see what Hardik’s team wants with the bat. Nehra told Cricbuzz, ‘Everyone’s eyes are on him (Hardik Pandya). I am not saying that he should always bowl all 4 overs of his quota, but if he can bowl a few overs to help Kieron Pollard, it will be a huge plus for the team.
Veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been made the mentor of Team India for the T20 World Cup-2021. Dhoni is the only captain to win 3 ICC trophies. In such a situation, his experience will be of great use to the Indian team. Pacer Shardul Thakur, who was selected as a standby in the World Cup team, feels the same way. Shardul, who has been playing for Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings in IPL since 2018, said that Dhoni’s understanding of the game will come in handy for captain Kohli as well as coach Ravi Shastri. Shardul said, ‘I am very happy with this decision of BCCI. I have been playing with him (Dhoni) for 3 years and I know his experience comes in handy. He will bring new ideas to the team. I think Virat and Ravi bhai will also get some help from him. Mahi bhai will come up with another idea. Especially, in times like these, when the team is under pressure, his experience will really come in handy.
