Even though there are still more than three months until the T20 World Cup 2024 begins

Rohit Sharma Captain T20 World Cup

BCCI secretary Jay Shah declared Rohit Sharma to be India’s captain and expressed his confidence that Men in Blue will win the championship under his direction during an event held in Rajkt on Wednesday, February 14, in advance of the third Test between India and England.

“Main aap ko promise karna chahta hoon ki Rohit Sharma ki kaptani mein 2024 mein Barbados mein hum jarur Bharat ka jhanda gadenge (I want to promise you that we’ll lift the trophy in Barbados at the 2024 T20 World Cup under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy).”

The Indian squad that advanced to the T20 World Cup semifinals in 2022 was captained by Rohit.

However, he did not appear in a single T20 International match in 2023 after India’s 10 wicket defeat against England in the semi-final on November 10, 2022.

When he returned as India’s captain for a three-match T20I series against Afghanistan in January 2024, all speculation that he may never play T20Is for India again was dashed.

On January 17, he even validated his return with a century (121*) in the third T20 International at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
