Next T20I captain to be decided by selectors, says BCCI Secretary Jay Shah

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah opened up about Team India’s new skipper on Monday and said that the decision will be made by the selectors.

Speaking to reporters in Barbados, Shah said that the BCCI will announce the new skipper only after thorough discussions with the selection committee. The current five-man selection committee, headed by Agarkar, includes Shiv Sundar Das, Subroto Banerjee, Salil Ankola, and Sridharan Sharath.

Shah also shed light on the possibility of Hardik Pandya taking over as the permanent skipper of the Indian team, following Rohit Sharma’s retirement from T20Is.

“There were concerns about his form, but the selectors maintained their faith in him even after a lackluster IPL season, and he has proven himself,” Shah was quoted by ESPNcricinfo as saying.

Rohit Sharma announced his retirement from T20 internationals after India clinched the T20 World Cup in the Caribbean and the United States of America (USA).
With several key players unavailable, Shubman Gill will lead the team during this bilateral series. Gill was among the traveling reserves for the World Cup, alongside Rinku Singh, Avesh Khan, and Khaleel Ahmed.

India’s upcoming schedule includes a 5-match T20I series against Zimbabwe starting on July 6 at Harare Sports Club. With several key players unavailable, Shubman Gill will lead the team during this bilateral series. Gill was among the traveling reserves for the World Cup, alongside Rinku Singh, Avesh Khan, and Khaleel Ahmed.

Following the Zimbabwe tour, India will tour Sri Lanka later this month for a series of 3 T20Is.
