Virat Kohli will be playing his last match as India’s T20I captain on Monday. Ahead of the match, former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar suggested Kohli should offer the captaincy in this last match to Rohit Sharma.
He Explained, “If Virat Kohli wants to sort of start a new trend, the inevitable future in T20 cricket, he could maybe offer the leadership straightaway to Rohit Sharma in this final game. Then Rohit Sharma may not be rested and play as captain.”
While Rohit Sharma looks like the next man to get the responsibility of captaining the Indian cricket team, some reports have suggested the name of KL Rahul too. Meanwhile, Kohli’s India lost first two matches of their Super 12 group in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021. Then won the next two but eventually it did not help them much and today’s match against India is going to be a mere formality.
Former Aakash Chopra reflected on Kohli’s journey in this tournament as captain saying, “This is where one story is ending. It is Virat Kohli’s first and last T20 World Cup as captain, he will not be seen again as a captain in the shortest format. Virat and Ravi Shastri‘s pairing is also finishing here. It was an extremely disappointing campaign for Virat Kohli as a captain.”
