Now that the T20 World Cup is almost six months away, the Team India management has started preparations in view of the competition. The recent T20 series played between Australia (Ind vs AUS) can be called the beginning of this. And two days later, the series against South Africa is starting. However, when veterans Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma were rested for this series, there has been a lot of discussion among the fans about the future of both of them in T20. At the same time, according to the latest filtering reports, BCCI wants Rohit Sharma to captain India in this mega event, but the same thing cannot be said about Virat Kohli at number three. The special thing is that both of these players have not played any match since the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2022.

This is also a condition of selectors
According to the report, it is also coming out that the selectors have also made up their mind that if their performance in IPL 2024 is good, then their name will be considered in this case.

Along with him, many senior players including Rohit have been rested from the T20 series in South Africa. Now let's see what is Virat's stance on the selectors' mind.
