Srinagar: India skipper Rohit Sharma has reportedly asked BCCI to clarify stand on his inclusion in the T20 World Cup 2024 in USA and West Indies.
A report has claimed that BCCI officials recently had a meeting with Rohit Sharma, head coach Rahul Dravid and the selection committee to discuss various things about Indian cricket.
“Rohit, who joined the meeting held in New Delhi, via a zoom call as he was in London at that time, enjoying quality time with his family after a gruelling few months of non-stop cricket, asked the top BCCI officials and the selectors if they wanted him to be a part of the upcoming T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the USA,” Dainik Jagran reported quoting an official present in the meeting.
Rohit asked the officials present and the Ajit Agarkar-led selection committee if they saw him playing in the T20 World Cup. ‘If you want to select me for the T20 World Cup then tell me now how to go about it,’ said Rohit in the meeting according to the official, as reported in the Hindi daily.
The officials present, coach Dravid and the selectors reportedly agreed unanimously that Rohit is the right man to lead the team’s charge in the T20 World Cup.
The report added that the selectors, in fact, wanted Rohit to take charge of the T20I side from the South Africa tour itself but the veteran opener requested a break from the entire white-ball leg.
Rohit will return as captain in the two-match Test series that is slated to begin on December 26.
