New Delhi: Ever since team India skipper Virat Kohli announced that he’ll step down as T20 skipper after the World Cup, fans and cricket pundits are since then debating on who should be the next T20 captain. Senior opener Rohit Sharma’s name currently leads the list, while there are people who are also in favor of handing over the T20 captaincy to KL Rahul.
The way Rishabh Pant has led Delhi Capitals in IPL 2021, his name is also being discussed and it is believed that he will most likely be made vice-captain, if not the captain of team India’s T20 squad. Meanwhile, former South African fast bowler Dale Steyn has named the next captain of Team India after Virat Kohli.
“They have got tons. You just have to look around in the IPL and there are so many players. You’ve got SKY, who I think will come in at some place. You’ve got Rishabh Pant, who is looking good. There are just so many of these guys… Iyer, Rohit. They can all do it but you just have to give somebody that responsibility and allow them to run with it. India have been really good with it. They have given the captaincy to one particular players for a long time and they have done the job,” Steyn told Sports Tak.
“They have got a bunch of different people to pick from. I think the most exciting thing for India right now is that the young players that are coming through, they are all world-class players. You look at Mohammed Siraj, Rishabh Pant… these are young guys who are doing extremely well at the international level. So if you give the captaincy to Rohit, who has been around for a while… has won numerous IPLs, it will be a great call since he can nurture the youngsters,” Steyn pointed out.
