Will he play T20 World Cup?  Rohit Sharma answers

During the 50-over World Cup (ICC World Cup 2023), the question kept coming up again and again. Will Rohit Sharma play in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, to be held in June 2024? Not only that, if Rohit plays in the 20-over cup, will he lead Team India? Or will the team be handed over to Hardik Pandya? The question revolves around Indian cricket. This time, Hitman answered that question.

Rohit was addressing a press conference ahead of the Boxing Day Test against South Africa. When asked about the issue, Rohit said, "As a batter, whatever opportunity comes to me, I will take it with both hands. There's nothing more to say at the moment. Responding to Rohit's reply, a reporter asked, "Will you play in the upcoming T20 World Cup?" But I don't want to say anything now. You'll know everything at the right time."

Rohit Sharma has not played for India in the 20-over format since the 2021 T20 World Cup. Hardik Pandya has led the Indian cricket team in his place. Hardik recently suffered an ankle injury while playing against Bangladesh in the ODI World Cup tournament. There is no certainty when he will be able to join the Indian cricket team again.

On the other hand, the condition of Suryakumar Yadav is also the same. He also suffered an ankle injury during the third T20I against South Africa. It is heard that he will have to stay out of Team India for several months.

According to sources, in this situation, the BCCI wants Rohit Sharma to take over the captaincy of Team India in the T20 World Cup. However, Rohit has not yet made any final decision in this regard.

In the press conference, Rohit Sharma was asked whether winning the Test series or the T20 World Cup against the Proteas could apply some balm to the wounds of the defeat in the ODI Cricket World Cup. "We didn't win the ODI World Cup, but a Test series win against South Africa is no balm for that wound. The one-day cricket World Cup tournament is different. Nothing can fill that gap. It can't be compared to anything else.''

He added, "We're working so hard. I can expect some benefits. Not only the senior cricketers, but the junior cricketers also want to give their best in this series. They want to prove their worth. Hopefully, we can play well in this series. We're not thinking about anything back or forth. '
