The BCCI has taken the smart action in making Rohit Sharma the India white-ball commander across ODIs and T20Is. Rohit has been doing admirably for a long while presently and he was holding back to get his captaincy turn. I feel it is a decent move.
Presently, Virat Kohli can focus on Test cricket and Rohit can focus on white-ball cricket, in which he has done incredibly well as a pioneer up to this point. He has won many titles for Mumbai Indians in the IPL and has additionally done well in whatever games he has been given as skipper of the Indian group.
Virat has had a decent run as commander of the Indian white-ball group and presently the weight from his shoulders will be delivered 100%. He is probably the best batsman on the planet right now. He is effective and there have additionally been some incredible exhibitions under him. This will assist him with focusing more on Test cricket, which I feel is a definitive type of cricket.
I feel there will be no issue of having two power places in the Indian changing area. These are proficient players all things considered and they will continue ahead with the current task. A similar will be the situation for the young people, they will hope to get their possibility and get it.
As we find in England, Joe Root and Eoin Morgan are both doing great as Test and white-ball commanders. So split captaincy can work for both Virat and Rohit also. They won’t be overburdened. It will facilitate the tension on them as they will not be under the spotlight constantly. They can focus on their game better in different organizations as well.
The main thing presently is that the public choice board of trustees needs to prep somebody who will assume control over the captaincy later on. This is material not exclusively to the captaincy however to players also. Creating back-up players is key since they cause everybody playing in the group to remain alert.
The selectors’ responsibility is to prep players, and to make adequate choices and seat strength so that at whatever point incredible players resign, there ought to be no void in the group. The circumstance begins going crazy once there is a void. Take a gander at the West Indies. They managed world cricket for a long time and afterward went from No. 1 to the base positioned group at one phase [they are No. 8 currently].
In my residency as the choice panel executive, we made Anil Kumble the chief and simultaneously, we prepared MS Dhoni and others. I additionally prepared Ishant Sharma and took him to England, realizing that he won’t play there. Be that as it may, I realized he could end up being more than convenient in Australia later.
Prepping will be key for this choice advisory group too. You can’t simply toss players into the remote ocean and anticipate that they should swim. I don’t have confidence in something like this.
