India ODI Captaincy – India Cricket Overhaul – With ICC World Cup 2023, Rohit Sharma will end his tenure as the India ODI captain. The newly appointed vice-captain Hardik Pandya will take over India white-ball captaincy leading up to T20 World Cup 2024. While the BCCI expects Rohit to continue in Tests. However, a call on his Test captaincy and future will be taken after the ODI World Cup. KL Rahul is the frontrunner to take over Test captaincy.

“Right now, Rohit is the man to lead India in the World Cup this year but we must plan about what next. Just can’t wait for things to happen and then react. Just in case Rohit decides to let go of the ODI format or captaincy post the 2023 World Cup, we need to have a plan in place,” a senior BCCI official told News18.

No Rohit Sharma in T20s: As things stand, Rohit Sharma has already played his last T20 for India in T20 WC. The selectors don’t foresee Rohit in T20s along with other senior players including Virat Kohli.

While BCCI hasn’t made an official announcement regarding change in T20 captaincy, broadcaster and people in the BCCI are already clear on who is India’s captain in the shortest format. The selection committee has already sent a message, promoting Hardik as the vice-captain, dropping KL Rahul following a string of poor shows.

“Hardik is doing well as captain. He is young and will only get better. For now, there is no better option than him to be looked at post Rohit. He must be backed and given a long and consistent rope,” the official said.

India Test Captaincy: BCCI isn’t totally convinced on KL Rahul as the next Test captain. However, he is the best option along with Rishabh Pant. But with Rishabh Pant set for a lengthy period on the sidelines, KL Rahul looks set to take over Test captaincy. InsideSport earlier reported that BCCI will sit with Rohit Sharma, Rahul Dravid and the selection committee on Rohit’s future after the World Cup.

Rohit is already 36 and with the history of injuries, it is unlikely he will continue post WC. If India win the World Cup, it is likely that he will announce his retirement right away.

The other candidate to succeed Rohit in Test was Jasprit Bumrah. But he is at the crossroads yet again. With another injury layoff, Bumrah hasn’t earned himself any favour. Apart from that, he is an all-format player and the selectors don’t want to put too much pressure on him.
