Rohit Sharma Takes Charge: Sourav Ganguly Backs Hitman as Ideal Captain for T20 World Cup 2024

Following India’s dominant win over England, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has officially confirmed Rohit Sharma as captain for the highly anticipated T20 World Cup 2024. This decision echoes the endorsement of former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, who played a key role in Rohit’s ascension to all-format captaincy.

Ganguly’s Seal of Approval

Speaking to Mid-Day, Ganguly, who championed Rohit’s leadership potential back in 2022, reiterated his support. “Rohit Sharma is the right choice as India captain for the T20 World Cup,” he stated, citing the team’s impressive 10-match winning streak under Rohit’s captaincy in the 2023 ODI World Cup. This unwavering support solidifies Rohit’s position as the ideal leader to guide India on the quest for T20 glory.

Rohit’s recent captaincy stint in the T20I series against Afghanistan further cemented his suitability for the World Cup role. As BCCI secretary Jay Shah points out, “Rohit was captaining (in the past in other formats) and he came back for the Afghanistan series, which means we were going to let him continue forward.” This return to leadership, coupled with his record-breaking century against Afghanistan, underscores his batting prowess and leadership capabilities.

Experience Meets Performance

Rohit’s credentials speak for themselves. He holds the coveted title of most prolific T20I centurion, boasting five centuries and a personal best score of 121* against Afghanistan. Notably, three of these centuries came while leading India. With a staggering 3974 runs in 151 T20Is, Rohit brings not only experience but also the ability to perform under pressure, a crucial attribute for any captain.

Both Ganguly and Shah exude confidence in Rohit’s leadership. Shah expressed, “Rohit has the ability, we know. As he showed in the ODI World Cup where we won 10 matches in a row until the final. I am confident that India will lift the 2024 T20 World Cup under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy in Barbados.” With experienced leadership at the helm and a talented squad backing him, India’s journey to conquer the T20 World Cup under Rohit’s captaincy promises to be an exciting one.
