India’s New T20I Captain: “For T20 Cricket, There Is No Harm In Having A New Captain,” Ravi Shastri Makes A Bold Statement

India’s New T20I Captain: Former Indian cricketer, Ravi Shastri made a bold and honest statement whether India needs a separate captain for T20 cricket.

According to the former head coach, there is no harm in having a new captaincy material as far as the shortest format of the game is concerned.

Earlier, Team India ran through a terrible failure in the semi-final fixture against Jos Buttler-led England cricket team at Adelaide Oval in Adelaide.

England simply toyed with the Indian bowlers throughout the game as they didn’t lose even a single wicket during the run-chase. India lost the game by 10 wickets.

Rohit Sharma came under fire for his terrible display of strategy. Moreover, the bowlers didn’t show any sign of intent to take a wicket throughout the game.

Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma has been rested for the New Zealand tour. It paved way for Hardik Pandya to take up leadership responsibility for the three-match T20I series against New Zealand.

He added that it’s not always going to be easy if a player has to manage all three formats of the game. Shastri added that if Rohit Sharma is already leading in Tests and ODIs, there is no harm in picking a new T20I captain.

The former Indian captain said if the new T20I captain is Hardik Pandya, it is well and good. The first T20I between India and New Zealand was abandoned due to rain.
