Rohit Sharma's T20 career comes to an End:- Rohit Sharma's T20I career has come to a close, and the selectors are now contemplating his ODI captaincy following India's loss to Australia in the ICC World Cup 2023 final. The Board of Control for Cricket in India is seeking clarity on Rohit's future in white-ball cricket while also grooming a new leader.
A source reveals that Rohit has expressed his acceptance of not being considered for the shortest format. His last T20I appearance was in the semi-final against England during the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. As the selectors prioritize investing in young talent, it remains to be seen how the 36-year-old will fare in one-day internationals. Additionally, it is uncertain whether Rohit will participate in the 2025 edition of the Champions Trophy.
The Men in Blue's upcoming ODI assignment will take place in South Africa. "Prior to the ICC World Cup 2023, Rohit had communicated to the Indian selection committee his willingness to forgo T20Is. The selectors are committed to moving forward with young players," the source informed the Times of India. The goal includes preparing a captain for the challenges of the extended format, as it is an integral aspect of the championship.
