A day after India’s defeat against New Zealand in the semi-final match, former Indian Test cricketer, Wasim Jaffer has expressed his wish that Rohit Sharma should lead India in the white-ball formats. He took to his official twitter handle and asked if it would be the right time to hand over white ball captaincy (ODI and T20 formats) to Rohit Sharma and then added that he would like him to lead India in 2023 World Cup.

Former Indian opening batsman wants rohit sharma as captain

"Is it time to hand over white ball captaincy to Rohit Sharma?" tweeted Jaffer on Saturday. I would like him to lead India in 2023 World Cup." (sic), wrote Wasim Jaffer.

Even some of the twitter users supported him saying, “It's high time @BCCI should consider @ImRo45 as a captain for Indian ODI side bec @imVkohli clearly failed he is not tactical nd his captaincy moves are worst” (sic)

“Yes hes more a thinking brain and street smart more like Dhoni that Odi demands. Virat is more aggressive and persistent attuned to test cricket.” (sic)

Another twitter user appreciated Wasim Jaffer by agreeing to his point saying that Rohit is calm and strategic and his captaincy in IPL was unmatched

“Sir, Brave point kept, Rohit is calm and strategic when compared to Kohli who is a consistent batsman put very impulsive and over expressive and vulnerable as a leader or captain. Rohit unmatched success in IPl as a captain and handling of all rounders speaks volumes....” (sic)

However, it is only up to BCCI to shape up future Indian team. As we reported earlier, the World Cup review meeting by CoA which will have Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri is likely to be a key factor for further changes in the Indian Cricket Team.
