Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will not be able to play the next World Cup! Shoaib Akhtar gave special responsibility to Hardik Pandya

ODI World Cup 2023 After the defeat in the final, Team India is ready to enter a period of change. allegedly Rahul Dravid Now he is not ready to continue on the post of chief coach. In such a situation, BCCI will have to look for a new coach. As far as Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are concerned, Rohit Sharma will be 40 years old by the 2027 ODI World Cup. Virat Kohli will turn 39 years old. In such a situation, it remains to be seen whether these two remain a part of the team in the next World Cup or not. Doubts are also being raised on Rohit Sharma being the captain. In such a situation, Hardik Pandya’s name is at the forefront in the race for captaincy. In such a situation, former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar believes that it will be the responsibility of Hardik to give a respectable farewell to Rohit and Kohli. This has happened before in Indian cricket also.

India cannot get an opener like Rohit Sharma

Shoaib Akhtar believes that India will not get a better opener than Rohit Sharma. He says that there is still a lot of cricket left in both Rohit and Kohli. Shoaib told Zee News that if you ask whether there is cricket left in Rohit and Kohli? So my answer would be yes. Certainly there is still cricket left in both. Can you find a better opener than Rohit in the world right now? Could not get.

Hardik will have to do this work

Shoaib further said that if a period of change comes then it should be the responsibility of Hardik Pandya to honorably oust Rohit and Kohli. Akhtar gave the example of how Dhoni had sent off Sachin Tendulkar, and even how Kohli handled Dhoni after he left the captaincy. This is already an example in the Indian team.

Dhoni had given respect to Sachin and Kohli had given respect to Dhoni.

Shoaib openly said, ‘When Dhoni came, he gave respect to Sachin Tendulkar. When Virat came, he respected Dhoni. When Rohit replaced Virat, he also gave him respect. Therefore, now it is up to Hardik Pandya how he wants to send off these two great players. Now it is up to them to express their views and say goodbye respectfully. Both of them deserve this honour. I am probably putting pressure on Hardik Pandya through this but he needs to give that respect to Rohit and Kohli.

Selectors will have to do this work

Akhtar said that he should repay the kind of support he has received from them in the team. And he is a legend of Indian cricket, so he should be given due respect before leaving. Talking about the World Cup, it will take time for the fans and players to recover from the grief of the final but the selectors will have to focus on the future as soon as possible.

BCCI will have to take this decision

When the next ODI World Cup takes place in 2027, the team management will have to look for alternatives to Rohit and Virat. There is no doubt that both Rohit and Kohli can perform at their best at that time. But four years may be too far for two legends of Indian cricket. Before thinking about what could happen after four years, the board and selectors will have to take an immediate decision.
