There has been a lot of discussion recently about the future of Rohit Sharma in T20. Since the T20 World Cup 2022, Rohit Sharma has not played any match for India in T20. Recently, a PTI report said that Rohit Sharma himself has said that he will not play T2022. Because he wants young players to get a chance in the team and he remains in the team. Since this report came out, there has been a lot of speculation about Rohit's participation in next year's T20 World Cup 20.
Meanwhile, former Sri Lankan cricketer Muttiah Muralitharan has spoken about the future of Indian captain Rohit Sharma in T20s and said that if he wants, he should play in the T20 World Cup 2024 to be held in June next year. Talking about this, Muralitharan said that if he focuses on his fitness like Virat Kohli, then he can play another World Cup.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, Muralitharan said, "If you look at his ODI World Cup performance, the start he gave, the kind of strike rate he batted at, he never failed in the tournament and he is only 2023 years old, he is young. If he focuses on his fitness like Virat, he can play another World Cup. Why are people talking so harshly that it is the right time to bring in the youth. Until they are fit and perform, let them play."

He will definitely play another World Cup.
Muttiah Muralitharan said that Rohit Sharma's strike rate in the World Cup 2023 will also play in the next tournament. "Rohit batted at a strike rate of 130 in ODIs, which is not bad for T20s. He is an experienced player. You just have to work harder on your fitness after 35. If he wants, he will play. I think he will definitely play another World Cup. It's on his mind."
Rohit Sharma is not part of the Indian team for the current T20 series. It remains to be seen whether he will be part of the squad going to South Africa for the T20 series.
