India’s opening batsman and captain Rohit Sharma has been struggling to score runs for a long time now. Under the leadership of Rohit, the Indian team recently played the final match of the World Test Championship. In this match, India lost to Australia by 209 runs. The WTC 2023-25 season started from Ashes 2023. But there is no guarantee that Rohit Sharma will lead the team throughout this season. Former Indian cricketer Akash Chopra has also expressed doubts about this.
After Virat Kohli stepped down from the Test captaincy last year, Rohit Sharma became the new captain of the team. But many people have doubts about how long Rohit will fulfill this responsibility. Against this backdrop, Akash Chopra has expressed his opinion. Akash Chopra said on his YouTube channel, “There is no doubt that Rohit Sharma is a good captain. There is no doubt that he is a good Test batsman. But no one can guarantee that it will be like this in the future. Because we have reached the finals in the last two WTC seasons. But could not win even once. Also Rohit’s age will not be with him. This is the truth.”
The WTC 2023-25 season will be played for the next two years. According to Akash Chopra, this is a long time. He said, “If we look at the next two years, Rohit Sharma can play one more WTC season. But for that he really needs to want to play Test cricket. Because it takes a lot of time to play a total of six series.” Akash Chopra doesn’t think Rohit will last the next two years as captain, but he has no doubts about Rohit’s quality. According to Chopra, Rohit has a good understanding of the game and never allows minor mistakes.
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma is currently 36 years old. Questions have been raised about Mog’s fitness for a long time. He will be 38 years old by the time of the upcoming WTC final. Whether the Indian captain will lead the team till then is a big question. However, Rohit can decide on this himself after seeing his performance in the coming period.
