Digital Desk, New Delhi. After Virat Kohli quit the captaincy in T20, the Indian team is waiting for the name of its new captain. On the other hand, the BCCI has already issued the application for the coach. Shastri’s tenure ends after the T20 World Cup. In such a situation, the Board of Control for Cricket in India is ready to appoint a new coach.
Who will be the new captain or the new coach, those names have not been stamped by the BCCI yet. But in the first match of India’s tour of New Zealand, on November 17, the Indian team will take the field with a new coach and new captain. Actually, on the 17th, India has to play the first T20 match against New Zealand. This match will be played at Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur.
Rohit Sharma is the frontrunner in the captain’s race
In limited overs cricket, the current vice-captain of the Indian cricket team, Rohit Sharma, is considered almost certain to become the T20 captain. Rohit Sharma’s T20 record is very good. Mumbai Indians have become IPL winners under his captaincy five times. Rohit Sharma has a good record even while leading the national team, under his captaincy the Indian team has played 19 T20s where they have won 15.
Rahul Dravid will be the coach!
Ever since the news about the appointment of a new coach has started coming in, it is being speculated that Dravid will be the new coach of the Indian team. But BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has rubbished these reports. Dravid was appointed the coach of the Indian team for the tour of Sri Lanka, where under his guidance the team captured the one-day series and the team had to face defeat in the T20 series. Dravid is currently the President of the National Cricket Academy. In such a situation, his claim to become the coach should also be strong because the BCCI has also sought applications for the new president of the NCA.
How was Ravi Shastri’s journey?
If big tournaments are left out, then under Shastri’s coaching, Team India has played very good cricket at the international level. Under his guidance, Team India had twice defeated Australia in the Test series on their soil.
Captain Kohli’s record in T20
Virat Kohli took charge of the Indian team in T20 in 2017. So far, under his leadership, the Indian team has played 46 matches, winning 27 and losing 15.
