The Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri era will end with Team India’s final group match against Namibia in the T20 World Cup. Where Virat Kohli has left the captaincy of the T20 team, then the tenure of coach Ravi Shastri will end today. Former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar, known for his outspoken remarks just before the match, feels that Kohli should hand over the captaincy to Rohit against Namibia itself.
Kohli-led team India will play Namibia in the 42nd match of the ICC World T20 2021 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. In an interview about this, Manjrekar said that Kohli may offer the T20I captaincy directly to vice-captain Rohit as the leader of the Ravi Shastri-coached team in his final match. Manjrekar said, “If Virat Kohli wants to start a new trend, he can offer Rohit Sharma the leadership in his last 20 matches. Then Rohit Sharma cannot be rested and can play as captain.
India’s opener Rohit Kohli has emerged as the new captain of the Indian team in the shortest format. According to several reports, Rohit is also a prime candidate to captain Team India in their first home assignment after the T20 World Cup. Kohli will step down from T20I captaincy after India’s final World Cup match against Namibia today. Former India captain and batting legend Rahul Dravid will replace Shastri as the new head coach of the Men in Blue.
