Is it Demotion for Rohit Sharma? The possible step of appointing two captains clearly means that Indian team’s poor show at the T20 World CUP will cost Rohit Sharma his T20 Captaincy. But when InsideSport posed the same question to the BCCI official that will Rohit lose his captaincy because of the T20 World CUP debacle?

“It’s not about losing captaincy. It’s about future and decreasing load for Rohit. See these guys are not getting any younger. We feel we need fresh approach and fresh legs for T20 Squad”, added the official from the BCCI.

Are seniors being booted out? The next T20 World Cup takes place in the West Indies and the USA in 2024. BCCI is of the view, most of the oldies in the squad will themselves get phased out.

The BCCI official said, they are not concerned about the individuals but about TEAM INDIA.

“We are not concerned about the individuals. They are capable to take their own calls. We are concerned about Indian cricket, team India. What happened against ENGLAND and what has been happening in KNOCKOUTS should stop. All our decision making will be done keeping this thing in mind on how to end this KNOCKOUT ROT”.

  • The average age of the Indian team in the T20 World Cup was 30.6, making them one of the oldest squads in the tournament.
  • At 37, wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik was the oldest player and has certainly played his last match for India.
  • R.Ashwin is another one who is unlikely to get a role with T20 TEAM.
  • Rohit Sharma (35), Virat Kohli (33), Bhuvaneshwar Kumar (32), Mohammed Shami may also be fazed out.
