World Cup 2023 Final: Rohit Sharma, the captain who won the most titles for the Mumbai Indians team in IPL. The World Cup 2023 is likely to be the last ICC tournament for Rohit Sharma, who has captained India after Virat Kohli. So what is the future of Rohit Sharma?
Rohit Sharma, currently the captain of Team India. Despite not being able to win the major ICC trophy, Rohit Sharma has led the Indian team efficiently. Currently, Rohit Sharma is contributing to the Indian team reaching the World Cup 2023 finals. But the word of Rohit Sharma’s retirement was heard during the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 final. Rohit Sharma’s age is making it difficult for him to continue in cricket for a long time.
For this reason, Inside Sports reported that the BCCI will discuss the future of Rohit Sharma before the South Africa series and the decision of Rohit Sharma’s future is important in the context of the T20 World Cup 2024. Before the ODI World Cup final, Rohit Sharma held a press conference and shared many ideas. But in the press conference, Rohit Sharma was not under any pressure and although he shared many ideas, he did not give any clarification about whether he will represent the Indian team in the T20 World Cup 2024.
The Indian team is currently touring Australia and South Africa. Also the team needs to be prepared for T20 World Cup 2024 and ICC Champions Trophy 2025. Currently, the Indian team has given the best performance in the ODI World Cup 2024. The players in the Indian team are in terrific form. But the team needs to be ready for the T20 format within a year. Rohit Sharma has crossed 37 years of age. Can continue for at least 3 years in cricket. But the selection of a new captain for the Indian team is inevitable.
As Rohit Sharma continues for the next three years, may his lack of form also will see. According to the current information, the possibility of Rohit Sharma continuing to play Tests is very unlikely. Also, away from the ODI tournament, more attention is likely to be paid towards the remaining T20 match. Earlier, Mahendra Singh Dhoni also gave up the captaincy after winning 2 World Cups. Rohit Sharma is also likely to follow the same path.
Last chance for Rohit Sharma?
It is said that he will step down from the captaincy of the Indian team before the 2024 T20 World Cup. So the World Cup final is likely to be the last ICC tournament for Rohit Sharma. Will Rohit Sharma retire from all forms of cricket? No, it is not yet decided whether he will continue in T20 cricket. BCCI Selection Committee Chairman Ajit Agarkar had earlier said that he is thinking of discussing with Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli after the World Cup.
Rohit Sharma has been facing injury problem continuously since last two years. This is the reason why he may stay away from the team. Rohit Sharma has batted well in the current World Cup 2023. Rohit Sharma, who has played 10 matches, has scored 550 runs at an average of 55 and a strike rate of 124.15. In 2023, Rohit Sharma has played 33 international matches and played 16 IPL matches. Sharma said that he has become fit in the last one year.
In the last 2 years, Rohit Sharma has not done what he can claim in T20. Rohit Sharma has scored 767 runs in 31 T20 matches in last 2 years. It includes 5 fifties. He played a total of 14 matches in the 2022 IPL tournament and scored 268 runs, while in the 2023 IPL he scored 332 runs in a total of 16 matches, It includes 2 fifties. But if Rohit Sharma looks at his form, it is doubtful that he will return to the T20 team.
Even in the IPL, he has not given a batting performance that he can claim. Whether he will continue to play T20I matches will be decided before the tour of South Africa. Most of the players playing in the World Cup tournament are likely to be rested from the Australia tour. Therefore, Rohit Sharma is likely to stay away from the Australian tour. But Rohit Sharma’s future will be decided during the South Africa series.
Once Rohit Sharma steps down from the captaincy, there is a question as to who will be the captain of the Indian team. Hardik Pandya is currently leading the T20 series. But due to Pandya’s injury problem, KL Rahul is the vice-captain of Team India in the World Cup 2023. KL Rahul is likely to become the captain of three forms of cricket in the near future.
