No Threat to Rohit Sharma Captaincy in Test and ODI: To start, the title creates great suspense but the fact is that for Rohit Sharma there is no immediate threat in the ODI and the tests because the BCCI brass reports show that his traditional formats or leadership haven’t been found inadequate at any level.
This was a very important meeting as this report was made and where it was held by the secretary of BCCI whose name is Jay Shah. Along with this other people who attended this was the head coach Rahul Dravid and also Rohit himself.
Moving on, there was also the last selection committee chairman Chetan Sharma, along with President Roger Binny and lastly NCA head who attended this very meeting.
Before moving further, Indians love to use similar substitutes. More specifically, they can spot similarities with days gone by. At the heart of the stats-obsessed Indian is cricket romanticism nostalgic for the Mumbai-born batsmen with their graceful looks and slick batting style.
Rohit Sharma is praised as the longtime successor to the great Sachin Tendulkar, who finished fourth in the Test batting lineup. In the end, it adds up: so many times he can hit his shots, his ability to hit them with ease even at high speeds, and his wide shot repertoire. They say he is the best after Tendulkar.
Rohit was selected for the ODI squad on a whim following his seminal performance in the World T20 and his impressive Ranji Trophy record. He made an impressive appearance in the CB series Down Under, playing major cameo roles against stalwarts like Brett Lee and Stuart Clark, and excelled in Sri Lanka’s attack.
Inspiring away performances from the World T20 and CB series caught the attention of the selector and guaranteed him more in the limited campaign.
Moving onto another angle, the whole area of attention here was the world cup champions and team India seems to have a better opportunity of taking this to the finials, and then the ODI of the 2023 world cup with the new T20 captain Hardik Pandya wasn’t a part of the meeting.
Moreover, as the T20 international series is being played against Sir Lanka, Hardik has been in Mumbai as it starts on Tuesday.
Rohit shows absolute success by taking the India team into both the Tests and ODIs, but on the other hand, there has been no discussion of his future as a leader in either role.
True success shows itself because his captaincy record in Tests and ODIs is very outstanding. Lastly, a decision was made to rotate 20 players till the world cup of 2023.
Sharma, who attended Sunday’s review meeting, could be a major move by the board and he could again chair the senior national selection panel. So if it is not the chairman, it is highly likely that he is the representative of the north zone.
Former Indian Face clerk Venkatesh Prasad’s name is also on tour in South End, but it’s unclear if he was included on the panel. Sharma’s inclusion on the 2023 ODI World Cup roadmap is an important development in itself.
“First of all, if Chetan had not been notified, I would not have applied in the first place. Moreover, Chetan and Harvinder’s being there will bring along three new members as added by the source.”
Former opener SS Das is understood to be a favorite in the east given his 21 Test experience unless another OCD leads the BCCI and picks a soft candidate in the east.
In the West, Gujarati veterans Mukund Parmar, Salil Ankola, and Sameer Dighe will face off in a three-person match. Lastly, a new committee will be appointed next week.
