Hardik Pandya will serve as the captain of the Indian cricket team on their trip of New Zealand to usher in the post-T20 World Cup 2022 era. Even if Hardik is now the tour’s captain, Rohit Sharma is still the official skipper across all three forms. Hardik has been given a sabbatical from the series. Many former cricket players and experts support Hardik to succeed Rohit as India’s skipper in the limited-overs tournament. Salman Butt, a former cricketer for Pakistan, isn’t persuaded by the India all-leadership rounder’s abilities, in Salman’s opinion. In a video on his YouTube channel, Butt was questioned about Hardik’s potential for becoming India’s captain soon. Even though Rohit Sharma was unable to lead India to victory in the 2022 T20 World Cup, the retired Pakistani cricketer does not believe that Sharma should be fired as India’s captain.
“I don’t know who is seeing him as captain and who is watching such dreams. He has talent and has tasted success in the IPL. But even Rohit Sharma has been successful five to six times in the IPL. If he had scored well in a couple of matches (in the T20 World Cup 2022), people wouldn’t have been talking about making this change at the top,” he said. “In the Asian subcontinent, people start talking about such drastic and big changes rather soon. Not all of them, but quite a few, who probably don’t understand how these things work. Sometimes, just for the sake of giving an opinion, people say, ‘change the captain’,” he added.
Butt also asserted that the World Cup, which features 12 teams, can only be won by one captain. That doesn’t imply that the other 11 captains ought to be replaced. “Only one captain has won the World Cup, the rest of the teams 7have lost. Will you change the captains of all 11 teams because they lost the World Cup?” he asserted. Butt also asserted that the World Cup, which features 12 teams, can only be won by one captain.
