Bad habit skipper Rohit had been filling in for Virat with his captaincy obligations during significant competitions like the Nidahas Trophy and the Asia Cup in 2019, besides being a five-time IPL winning commander with Mumbai Indians.
In the middle, there were reports that Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul could be competitors, given they are generally and could be prepped to be a future long haul commander.
However, those presumptions were scattered on Wednesday when the BCCI formally declared Rohit chief of the T20I series against New Zealand.
Responding to Rohit’s arrangement as commander, previous Pakistan all-rounder and captain Shahid Afridi said that he saw the declaration coming.
Having played close by Rohit in the primary version of the IPL way back in 2008, Afridi said Rohit ought to unquestionably be given a shot as India’s full-time skipper and hopes to see two distinct sides of the T20I group’s new chief.
“All things considered, this was on the cards. I have played with him for a year (at Deccan Chargers). He is an exceptional player with marvellous shot determination. He remains loosened up to where required and shows outrage when expected to also.
We will see the two sides. As I said, this captaincy move will undoubtedly occur. He ought to be allowed an opportunity,” Afridi said on Samaa TV.
Afridi said something regarding active commander Virat Kohli’s job. It would not be the most exceedingly awful thought for the star India player to surrender captaincy in all arrangements and focus on his batting.
Afridi feels it’s anything but a simple assignment. Being chief of the Indian cricket crew with all the examination that accompanies it and giving up the captaincy will assist Kohli with partaking in his batting significantly more.
“I figure Virat should accept the choice to proceed as just a player. There will be moderately less strain, and he has played a lot of cricket as well.
He will partake in his cricket and batting because captaining a group is difficult, particularly in India and Pakistan. However long you are captaining great, things go smooth,” added Afridi.
