India’s cricket team has been under a lot of scrutiny following their defeat in the final of the ICC World Test Championship. Their inability to win the ICC tournament for long has been one of the hot topics and the questions related to the selection, captaincy, management and other things have started to take a toll.
2 players who can be India’s all-format captain after Rohit Sharma
After MS Dhoni won the Champions Trophy in 2013 as a skipper, there hasn’t been any captain who helped India win the tournament. Virat Kohli failed to do so and it was expected that a man with 5 IPL trophies Rohit Sharma would do something good. But the same story continued even under him as India lost two events under him as well. Calls related to sacking him as well has taken a toll and in this article we will take a look at 2 players who can be India’s all-format captain after Rohit Sharma.
Rishabh Pant is seen as the future of Indian cricket. The keeper batter in a short span of time already has achieved some unbelievable things and has won many games for India as well. He has been part of the Indian team in all three formats and has been reasonably well. The southpaw has shown his leadership prowess in the IPL and also captained India once during the five-match T20 series against South Africa. He could be the prime candidate to lead India in all three formats and take the team forward once Rohit Sharma leaves captaincy. He recently has been out of action due to the accident he met with in December 2022.

Therefore he can be one of the best candidates to captain Indian team in all three formats.
