Virat Kohli has decided to leave the captain’s mission at T20 after this year’s World Cup. Kori’s decision surprised millions of cricket fans, even as Star Buttsman continues to lead India in testing and ODI. The story is now moving to the candidate successor to Kori in the T20s. And Rohit Sharma is, of course, at the top of the list.

Former cricketer and analyst Akash Chopra believes Rohit Sharma will be a good T20I captain if he is appointed to replace Kori. Chopra said in a YouTube live session that the team has a “ready-made” captain in the form of Rohit. Fans asked Chopra during the live session if Rohit should lead the team.

“Rohit is a natural conclusion. It’s like having a ready-made captain on your team,” he said.

Chopra said he wouldn’t be surprised to see Team India, who will lead “Hitman” at the 2023 ODI World Cup. He said the transition could happen sooner or later, as the captains are often divided into white and red ball formats. “We rarely see anyone leading the test and the T20I. You either lead the test or lead in both the ODI and T20I formats,” he added.

Currently, Rohit is Kori’s whiteball-style adjutant. Rohit had an amazing success in IPL with Mumbai Indians. He has led Mumbai’s costumes to five IPL titles and is a strong candidate for the captain. There was no official confirmation from BCCI about who would receive the baton from Kori.
