In an eagerly anticipated move, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is poised to unveil India’s squads for the upcoming multi-format tour of South Africa on Thursday, November 30.
A key focus for the BCCI top brass is reportedly centered on convincing star batsman Rohit Sharma to take up the mantle of leading the team in the three T20I Internationals slated to be played in SA. Notably, Rohit has not featured in a T20I match since India’s heart-wrenching semi-final exit against England in the T20I World Cup in 2022.
The anticipation surrounding the squad announcement is heightened by Rohit Sharma’s potential return to captaincy in the shortest format. The last time Rohit led the Indian team in T20Is was during the T20I World Cup in 2022, and since then, the dynamic batsman has been absent from T20I leadership responsibilities.
Rohit Sharma, known for his astute captaincy and prolific batting, could bring a fresh perspective and strategic acumen to the T20I squad. His experience and success as a captain in other formats, particularly in One Day Internationals (ODIs), make him a strong contender for the leadership role in T20Is.
Fans will be keenly watching as the BCCI reveals the selected squads and awaits confirmation on whether Rohit Sharma will indeed be entrusted with the captaincy in the T20I leg of the South Africa tour. The announcement on November 30 promises to set the stage for an enthralling cricketing contest between India and South Africa in the coming weeks.
