The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday (November 30) announced Team India’s squad for their next assignment, the all-format tour to South Africa, starting on December 10. KL Rahul will lead the ODI squad while SKY will lead T20I squad the in the absence of injured Hardik Pandya. Rohit Sharma will return alongside Virat Kohli to lead the Test squad.

Earlier, before the announcement, there were doubts over the availability of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in the white-ball format.
Both Virat and Rohit have been out of T20I squad since the T20 World Cup last year as the focus shifted to ODIs.

Meanwhile, questions on Rohit Sharma’s white-ball future were also lingering on social media with the reports emerging that the Indian board is keen to have the Indian opener as T20I skipper till T20 World Cup 2024. But with the omission of his name from T20I squad, it looks certain that the 36-year-old is not planning to feature in the next year’s tournament.
