New Delhi: Indian team captain Virat Kohli has taken a big decision before the T20 World Cup. Virat Kohli said that he will step down as the captain of the T20 team just after the World Cup this year. Actually, Virat has taken this decision because captaining the Indian team in all three formats is affecting his game a lot. In such a situation, Team India will get a new captain, for which many players are contenders.
Rohit Sharma biggest contender
As soon as Virat Kohli will captain the T20 team, then the biggest contender for this post will be his friend Rohit Sharma. Rohit has been the most legendary player of the team after Kohli. Team India has never faced defeat in any series or big tournament till date under the captaincy of Rohit. In such a situation, it is believed that Rohit will be the next captain. But let us tell you that two more excellent players can also be contenders to become the new captain of the T20 team.
This player also has power
In place of Rohit Sharma, there is another player in Team India, whom BCCI can make captain in T20. This player is KL Rahul. Rahul is also a senior player and he has captained Punjab Kings very well in the IPL. If BCCI chooses the captain for every format like other teams, then Rahul is also a big contender. Rahul also does good wicketkeeping and if a wicketkeeper plays the role of captain then he understands the game more.
Will Pant’s luck open like Dhoni?
Team India’s young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant also has the power to become the new captain. Actually Pant has established himself in the Indian team for a long time now. The selectors can try Pant like former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Pant is also a current wicketkeeper like Dhoni and he also has a good understanding of the game from behind the wicket. At the same time, in the first half of IPL 2021, Pant captained Delhi Capitals in the best way. Delhi is at the top of the points table at the moment and is also a big contender to win the IPL this year.
Kohli took the decision because of this
Actually, Virat has taken this decision because captaining the Indian team in all three formats is affecting his game a lot. Actually, Virat’s form was not going well for some time, due to which he has taken such a big decision. However, Virat Kohli has decided to continue the captaincy of the Test and ODI teams. For the last few years, Kohli’s bat has not been able to run as it used to. Kohli has failed to score any century in all formats for the last two years.
