Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul’s Roles

According to BCCI sources, the captaincy will be shouldered by KL Rahul in the three-match ODI series. KL Rahul has previously served as the captain of Team India. KL Rahul will make a comeback in this format after ODI World Cup 2023. His performance in the ODI World Cup has been good. Although he was criticized for his slow innings in the final, he performed well in the rest of the tournament. But after that, the ODI burden will once again fall on the shoulders of Rohit Sharma. He will certainly maintain this streak till the Champions Trophy.

Future of Indian Cricket

While Hardik Pandya will lead the T20 team, Rohit Sharma is expected to return as the captain of the ODI team after the Sri Lanka tour. Rohit will likely maintain this role until the Champions Trophy. This new leadership structure aims to bring fresh energy and direction to the Indian cricket team, balancing experienced guidance with the vigor of new talents.
