<p>As the principal guest, Shah boldly said that, even though India lost to Australia in the Cricket World Cup 2023 final, he still felt that, with Rohit leading the squad so well, the team would definitely win the T20 World Cup.</p>
<p>“We won hearts in the Ahmedabad 2023 World Cup final, despite not winning the title after ten consecutive victories. “I want to assure you that we will raise the Indian flag in Barbados, the site of the 2024 T20 World Cup, led by Rohit Sharma. Hum Bharat ka jhanda gaadenge,” Shah said.</p>
<p>The news echoed around the stadium, and Rohit’s teammates erupted in cheers. He was beaming with pure joy.</p>
<p>“If Hardik was injured in the (2023 ODI) World Cup, who else can we give the captaincy?” inquired Shah, suggesting who would take over as captain in the event that the all-rounder sustains an injury during the 2024 T20 World Cup.</p>
<p>“As I said, we won ten games in the ODI World Cup, so he (Rohit) has skill. Though it is a necessary component of the game, we did not win the championship. Whoever performs better wins,” said Shah.</p>
<p>According to reports, Jay Shah has announced that Hardik Pandya would lead the T20I World Cup as vice captain. The Secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) responded to Virat Kohli’s absence from the Test series against England by saying, “Virat is not the kind of player who would miss a series without a significant reason.” Give it to him.</p>
<p>The importance of the Ranji Trophy was further highlighted by Jay Shah, who said, “Everyone has to play the Ranji trophy ahead of getting selected in the India team or IPL franchise.” Every player will be required to use Ranji.</p>
