Shreyas Iyer: From IPL Glory to the Indian Captaincy Race

The Indian team defeated South Africa by 7 runs in the final of the T20 World Cup 2024 on Saturday. With this, Rohit Sharma became the third Indian captain to win the ICC trophy. After winning the title, Rohit Sharma announced his retirement from T20 International. In such a situation, now the question is arising that which player will take over the command of the Indian team in T20 International in place of Rohit Sharma. The names of 5 players are leading in this race. One of these players did not even get the central contract.

Hardik Pandya

Hardik Pandya is considered a strong contender for the captaincy of the Indian team in T20 International. Rohit Sharma was away from this format since the T20 World Cup 2022. In such a situation, Hardik led Team India. Under the captaincy of Hardik, the Indian team has played 16 T20 Internationals and won 10. The team has lost 5 and 1 match was tied.

Rishabh Pant

Wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant is considered to be the future captain of Team India. He was seriously injured in a road accident in late 2022. In such a situation, he was away from cricket for about 16 months. Pant made a comeback before IPL 2024. After this, he performed brilliantly in the T20 World Cup 2024. Under the captaincy of Pant, the Indian team has played 5 T20 International matches. During this, the team has won 2 and lost 2. 1 match has also been inconclusive.

Shreyas Iyer

In IPL 2024, Kolkata Knight Riders won the title under the captaincy of Shreyas Iyer. Kolkata’s mentor Gautam Gambhir is now also leading the race for the head coach of Team India. In such a situation, he can show confidence in Shreyas. Shreyas did not get the central contract of BCCI.

Shubman Gill

After the T20 World Cup 2024, now the Indian team will tour Zimbabwe. During this, 5 T20 International matches will be played between the two teams. Shubman Gill has been appointed as the captain of the Indian team for this series. Gill will be seen captaining the Indian team for the first time. In IPL 2024, he took charge of Gujarat Titans.

Suryakumar Yadav

Suryakumar Yadav, who was the number-1 batsman in T20 International for a long time, is also in the race for captaincy. Surya suits this format. He has also captained the Indian team in 7 T20 Internationals. During this, Team India has won 5 matches and the team has lost in 2.
