<p>“We were going to let Rohit continue going forward because he was captaining (in the past and in other formats) and he returned for the Afghanistan series after a year,” said Shah.</p>
<p>As soon as Shah made the news during the occasion, Rohit broke into a grin. The Indian captain’s gesture is now trending on social media.</p>
<p>The selection of Hardik Pandya as vice captain</p>
<p>Jay Shah said that Pandya would serve as Rohit’s deputy and is still a member of the leadership group.</p>
<p>Without a doubt, Hardik Pandya will serve as vice captain. Who else can we choose captain when Hardik gets hurt during the World Cup? India was 22/4 against Afghanistan in the third Twenty20 International, so we can’t really ask too many questions about Rohit Sharma after he helped the side to 212/4. As I said, we won 10 games in the ODI World Cup, so he is capable. Though it is a necessary component of the game, we did not win the championship. Shah said, “Whoever plays better wins.”</p>
<p>Dravid will continue to lead India till the 2021 T20 World Cup.</p>
<p>Rahul Dravid would continue to lead India as their coach till the forthcoming T20 World Cup in June of this year, the BCCI secretary further affirmed.</p>
<p>Rahul bhai had to go right away for the South Africa trip after the 2023 World Cup. We never had the chance to meet in between, but that finally occurred tonight,” Shah said on the verge of the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium’s renaming ceremony on Wednesday evening.</p>
<p>“What makes you concerned about a deal for someone with Rahul Dravid’s level of experience? Shah said, “Rahul bhai will stay the coach for the T20 World Cup.”</p>
