Sourav Ganguly wants to see Rohit Sharma as captain till T20 World Cup 2024, highly praised

in ODI World Cup Rohit Sharma Former Indian captain impressed by the captaincy of Sourav Ganguly Said on Friday that he should remain India’s captain at least till the T20 World Cup next year. Under the captaincy of Rohit, the Indian team reached the World Cup final by winning ten consecutive matches where it was defeated by Australia by six wickets. Rohit and Virat Kohli have taken a break from the limited overs series to be held in South Africa from December 10. Ganguly told reporters that both need rest so that they remain fresh for the busy schedule ahead.

Rohit is an integral part of the Indian team

“Rohit Sharma should captain India after returning in all formats because he performed so brilliantly in the World Cup,” Sourav Ganguly said on the sidelines of a promotional event in Kolkata. He said, ‘You saw how he played in the World Cup. He is an integral part of Indian cricket. Rohit and Virat have not played T20 cricket since the 2022 T20 World Cup. Since then Hardik Pandya is the T20 captain of India but due to his injury, Suryakumar Yadav is captaining against Australia.

Suryakumar Yadav captain of T20 team

Suryakumar Yadav has also been appointed captain of the T20 team for the South Africa tour. Whereas KL Rahul will captain in the ODI series. Ganguly said, ‘The World Cup is different from a bilateral series because the pressure is different. India performed brilliantly in this World Cup and will repeat the same in West Indies after six-seven months. Rohit is a leader and I hope he will be the captain in the T20 World Cup also.

Ganguly happy with extension of Dravid’s tenure

BCCI has also extended the tenure of head coach Rahul Dravid at least till the T20 World Cup, although his tenure has not been revealed yet. Dravid became the coach when Ganguly was the BCCI President and Ganguly expressed happiness over the extension in his tenure. He said, ‘I am not surprised that he has expressed confidence in Dravid. When I was the Chairman of the Board, we had convinced him to take up this position. I am happy that his tenure was extended.

Said this on Rahane-Pujara

He said, ‘Even though India did not win the World Cup, the Indian team was the best team of the tournament. He has a chance to play another World Cup after seven months. Hopefully this time there will be champions and not runners-up. Test specialists Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara did not get a place in the team for the two Tests against South Africa. Many youngsters have been given a chance in the limited overs team.

New talents should get a chance

Ganguly said on this, ‘Sometime or the other, new talents will have to be given a chance. There is so much talent in India that the team has to move forward. Pujara and Rahane were very successful but the game is not always with you. You can’t play forever. This will happen to everyone. I would like to thank him for his contribution to Indian cricket.
