New Delhi: The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 will start from October 17 in the UAE and Oman. For Indian team captain Virat Kohli, this tournament is going to be big from the captaincy point of view. If the Indian team fails to win the T20 World Cup to be held in October-November this year, then the captain of the team Virat Kohli may be stripped of the captaincy of the limited overs. In his place, this responsibility can be entrusted to Rohit Sharma. But there are many other players who can be made the captain of the Indian team instead of Kohli.
This player is also a big contender
In place of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, there is another player in Team India whom BCCI can make captain in limited overs. The name of this player is KL Rahul. Yes, KL Rahul is also a senior player and he has captained Punjab Kings very well in 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.
Pant can also be used
Like Rahul, Rishabh Pant, the young wicket-keeper batsman of Team India can also be a contender to become the new captain of Team India. 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’s last chance to save the captaincy
