New Delhi. Hardik Pandya is being told as the future captain of Team India. For this reason, he was made the captain of the T20 series against Sri Lanka. Apart from this, he has also been given the responsibility of vice-captain in the ODI series. Under the leadership of Pandya, the young team has won the T20 series 2-1. Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, the Indian team will start playing the ODI series on January 10. Recently, in the T20 World Cup held in Australia, under the leadership of Rohit, Team India could not perform well and got eliminated after losing in the semi-finals. Since then, apart from making a new captain in the T20 team format, there is a demand for a new coach as well. The next T20 World Cup is to be played jointly in West Indies and America in 2024.
After winning the series, Hardik Pandya has given a big update regarding the new coach. It is known that former Indian veteran Gautam Gambhir has put forward his stand regarding the appointment of Ashish Nehra as the coach of the Indian T20 team. He says that Nehra managed the team in a very cool and calm manner in the IPL and made Gujarat Titans the champion. It is known that BCCI can keep senior players out of the next T20 series as well. More and more opportunities will be given to the youth. The big reason behind this is that the Indian team has not been able to win the World Cup title since 2011. At the same time, the age of senior players Virat Kohli and Rohit will be more by 2024.
Pandya-Nehra pair after Kohli-Shastri?
Virat Kohli also took the side of coach Ravi Shastri when he was the captain. For this reason, BCCI had to make Shastri a coach instead of Anil Kumble. Pandya said after the match that because of Ashish Nehra, he has gotten a lot of benefits as a captain. He and I have the same thinking. Now it has to be seen whether the board gives Pandya a coach according to his wish or not. According to the information, after the ODI World Cup is held in India in October-November, the T20 team can get a new coach. Before that, the Indian team does not have to play more T20 matches.
During the Sri Lanka series, apart from Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav was made the vice-captain. In such a situation, the board is engaged in preparing a new batch of leadership. Looking at the workload, it is very difficult for any player to play for a long time in all three formats.
