New Delhi: The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 will start from October 17 in the UAE and Oman. Indian team captain Virat Kohli will captain T20 for the last time, so this tournament is going to be very big. If the Indian team fails to win the T20 World Cup this year, then Kohli may be stripped of the limited overs captaincy. In his place, Rohit Sharma is the biggest contender to become the new captain, but there is another player in the team who has full potential to become the new captain.
This young player can become the captain of Team India
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.
Pant is successful captain in IPL
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. Many times it is seen from behind the wicket that Pant keeps shouting and telling the bowlers to bowl in the right direction. Former captain Dhoni was also seen doing this many times. Recently in the Test series against England, Pant had helped the bowlers many times.
Pant is also adept at taking reviews
Former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was also considered very expert in taking reviews. Often the decisions of umpires around the world were proved wrong in front of Dhoni. Something similar can now be seen doing the same thing. Recently, against England, Pant was seen many times persuading captain Kohli to take a review and whenever Kohli obeyed him, India benefited from it. In such a situation, it can be seen that Pant has all the qualities to captain.
Dhoni also got the captaincy suddenly
On the other hand, if we talk about Dhoni too, then he was suddenly handed over the command of Team India. Mahi was made the captain for the T20 World Cup in 2007. At that time, the whole world believed that India would be out in the early stages of the World Cup, but Dhoni had won the cup for India without legends like Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Zaheer Khan. After this, India also won the 2011 World Cup under the captaincy of Dhoni.
