BCCI sources say that Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya will probably lead India in the T20I series against Sri Lanka, which starts on January 3 in Mumbai.
All-rounder Hardik Pandya is expected to lead India in the upcoming T20I series against Sri Lanka, which begins on January 3 in Mumbai, according to BCCI sources.
The second and third matches in the series will be played on January 5 in Rajkot and January 7. It is acknowledged that the recovery from Rohit Sharma’s thumb injury may take longer. But it’s not clear if T20 captain Rohit will step down or if the situation will be put on hold for now.
Despite the fact that no official announcement has been made as of yet, India’s exit from the T20 World Cup semi-final in Australia has made it abundantly clear that the new selection committee will bring about a reorganization.
In addition, despite the hypothesis, it is highly likely that the Summit Gathering meeting did not discuss India’s T20 captaincy.
“The matter was not even on the Pinnacle Committee’s agenda, and the gathering did not investigate it.” A BCCI official who was aware of the development told PTI, on condition of anonymity, that the captaincy selection can only be made by the selection committee.
Hardik is regarded as an ideal replacement for India’s T20 lineup, which has the potential to undergo a complete reorganization. He has shown leadership qualities for the Gujarat Titans as an all-rounder.
Rohit will work quickly to get in shape for the Sri Lanka series despite his dislocated thumb and webbing injury.
Just six T20Is will be given inclination over ODIs in a year because of the 50-over World Cup. Due to the fact that he will not be participating in the T20 World Cup in 2024, Rohit needs to stay away from the T20 Internationals unless he completely abandons the format.
An idea for President Roger Binny and Secretary Jay Shah came from a former BCCI official. The Wankhede, Rohit’s home ground, is the primary location for the T20I. Why don’t the selectors and BCCI secretary (Shah) give him a farewell T20 match if the initiative is to succeed? He provided.
Nevertheless, prior to the ODIs, Hardik’s health and capacity for board responsibility will be evaluated.
