Rohit Sharma hasn’t been in the best of form with the bat in T20Is. Consistent breaks due to fitness and rotation policy too haven’t helped the Hitman either, to get back to his destructive best. Hence BCCI may sack him as a skipper considering his poor recent form and fitness.
Rohit Sharma averaged only 24.3 in 29 T20Is in 2022. He had a poor T20 World Cup 2022, scoring only 116 runs in 6 T20Is averaging a mere 19.33 at a pathetic strike rate of 106.42.
2. Adequate Indian Openers Available
No one is irreplaceable, and neither is Rohit Sharma. The current pool of Indian youngsters provides the national selectors with enough options and alternatives to replace the Mumbaikar.
Also, if India aims to emulate England’s model of success, they need to provide openers like Prithvi Shaw, Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Shubman Gill with enough chances before the next T20 World Cup 2024 arrives. Hence BCCI may sack Rohit Sharma as skipper considering the availability of several talented youngster openers on the bench.
