Earlier Rohit Sharma was named as the full-time captain of the Indian Test team and with this announcement from BCCI, Now he has become the skipper of Team India in all three formats. He recently had an excellent home series against West Indies where Team India has won both ODI and T20 series with 3–0.
The Chairman of the Indian selection committee, Mr. Chetan Sharma has said that they are looking at Rohit to groom the youngsters as future leaders.
And speaking about it, Rohit said — “I won’t have that much of a role in telling them each and everything, they all are mature enough, it is just when someone needs to be there around them to guide them, I will be more than happy to do that. It is how we have come through the ranks, we were groomed by someone else. It is a natural process, everyone goes through this,”
He has also added — “If you talk of Bumrah, KL Rahul and Pant, they have a big role to play in India’s success, they are looked upon as leaders as well. They do understand there is a responsibility on their shoulders, but we do not want to any pressure on them as they are critical for us. We just want them to enjoy the game and execute the skills,”
When Rohit was asked how he manages his workload, he answered — “I am very clear on my mind on how I want to take it forward. Obviously, managing the workload, not just me, but everyone would be the key. We have seen a lot of injuries within our squad, we just need to be careful about what we do with individuals, how we rotate them, and how we give them a break. We are trying to manage that, we are trying to put a roadmap on how we move forward.”
He has concluded by saying — “As far as I am concerned, there are no issues, I am looking forward to playing all the games. The workload depends on what happens thereafter, you take it day by day. If there is an opportunity for you to take a break, you take a break. At the moment, it seems to be okay,”
