CricketSuspense over Team India captain for T20 World Cup ends

Srinagar: BCCI has announced the name who will be leading Team India in the T20 World Cup 2024 in USA and West Indies.

Ending the long suspense it was revealed that Rohit Sharma, who led India to the final of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, will captain the side at the latest edition of the T20 World Cup in the Caribbean Islands and USA.

BCCI secretary Jay Shah confirmed that Rohit would lead the T20I side and expressed confidence about India’s chances at the event.

“We may have lost the final of the 2023 ODI World Cup, but we won hearts there by winning 10 matches in a row,” Jay Shah said while speaking at the Niranjan Shah Stadium event in Rajkot.

“I am confident that India will lift the 2024 T20 World Cup under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy at Barbados,” he added.

Rohit has only played three T20Is since the end of the last edition of the T20 World Cup in Australia in 2022, notably making back-to-back ducks before a record fifth century in the format came in the final T20I of the Afghanistan series.

Pandya, who was one of the prominent leaders of the Indian T20I side in Rohit’s absence, is currently undergoing rehab for the ankle injury that saw him being sidelined for much of the 2023 Cricket World Cup.
