Here we will tell you, who are the contenders for NEXT GENERATION CAPTAIN, after Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s retirement. Here we have pitched some of the strong contenders from the current Indian squad, who can be the best options for the captaincy role.
What the history, trends and situation says?
From 1932 to 2021 India has come so far in the cricketing world. India has changed and tested so many captains over the years and they found some great talent as a captain.
Captaincy’s role is very vital in the game of cricket. We have seen some of the great Indian captains over the years and they set great examples for upcoming generations. And Indian fans and critics want every Indian captain to be more successful than other captains in Indian cricket history.
Kapil Dev, who led India and won in 1983 ODI world cup was an absolute revolutionary triumph for Indian cricket.
India saw a great improvement in away conditions during Saurav Ganguly’s reign of captaincy.
Then India witnessed their golden area of cricket under the vintage MS Dhoni’s leadership, after winning the 2007 T20 world cup, 2011 ODI world cup, 2013 champion trophy, and other major tournaments.
Now Indian team is dominating in test cricket like never before under Virat Kohli.
Indian cricket board simultaneously grooms other leaders also as a backup and for upcoming years to come. Like when Ganguly was the captain they were grooming MS Dhoni when MS Dhoni was the captain, the team was also grooming Virat Kohli, and now Kohli is the skipper of the team and he gets the support from his companions Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane.
After the 2023 ODI WC India will need someone to take the responsibility. The reason is India’s leadership group is getting old now and we don’t think India will miss a chance. Because BCCI is very professional than personal.
In such a scenario, the question arises here, who will be the next generation captain for India.
We have selected some of the quality players who can lead the Indian team in all formats and lead India into yet another realm of glory and fence.
1. KL RAHUL3 Reasons why Yuzvendra Chahal not selected for T20wc 2021 squad ?
A calm, composed and all format stylish wicket-keeper batsman and one of the senior players in the squad will be a good choice for the Indian team.
He was appointed the captain of Punjab kings in ipl2020. He may not have been very successful in IPL so far, but his leadership quality was quite visible in his decision-making, either in his batting approach or in backing his quality players.
