It has been almost a year since Rohit Sharma became the full-time captain, but now it is being said that there should be separate captains in ODIs and T20s. There is a continuous debate on this as well. Some veterans are also considering it right. One of them is Ravi Shastri, the former head coach of Team India. The first match of the three-match T20 series between India and New Zealand will be played in Wellington on November 18, before which Ravi Shastri has talked a lot while talking to Prime Video, the broadcaster of the match. Which should be understood.
Ravi Shastri said, there is no problem in having a separate T20 captain
Former Team India head coach Ravi Shastri has said that there is no problem in having a separate T20I captain and has recommended star all-rounder Hardik Pandya for the job. In the absence of full-time captain Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya will lead the team in the three-match T20I series starting in New Zealand. Earlier, Ravi Shastri said that there is so much cricket happening that it will never be easy for a single player to play all the three formats of the game. Ravi Shastri said there is nothing wrong in having a new T20 International captain if Rohit is handling the captaincy in Tests and ODIs and if it is Hardik Pandya then so be it.
T20 World Cup to be held in West Indies and America after two years
Ravi Shastri said this is the way forward and VVS Laxman will look for experts, especially from among the youngsters. He said that the mantra should be to identify two years from now and build a team which is going to be a great fielder and set roles for these youngsters who play fearless cricket without any pressure. Shubman Gill, Umran Malik, Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson have been given a chance for the T20 Internationals against New Zealand while the senior players have been rested. Ravi Shastri feels the Indian team’s team management should work on the lines of England’s plan for white-ball cricket by grooming youngsters, which earned them the distinction of winning the ODI and T20 World Cups. He said this team will have the opportunity to carve out future players, match-winners and grow like England’s template. Ravi Shastri said that after the 2015 World Cup, he identified the best players in the format of the game, be it T20 cricket or 50-over cricket. This means if there are some senior players, they will have to sit. And he took youngsters who were fearless and could adapt to the game. He said that India has a wealth of sources and it can start from this tour itself. This is a young team and you can improve this team by identifying it.
