- Shreyas Iyer will be the future captain of India
- Brad Hogg is a real team player
- New captain for India after T20 World Cup
KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant are considered for the future Indian captaincy. Pacer Jaspreet Bumra is also a potential player. But former Australia captain Brad Hogg says Shreyas Iyer is another name to be considered. Hogg said Shreyas is a player who can lead India in the future.
Shreyas shone in the first match of the second quarter of the IPL for Delhi Capitals. Shreyas, the team’s top scorer, did not play in the first quarter in India. He was injured during the series against England. Shreyas is the man who guided Delhi to the final last season.
“He is coming back from injury. He is playing in the IPL despite a lot of pressure. It will be very disappointing not to be able to make the T20 World Cup squad. Shreyas is a player who has all the potential to be India’s future captain,” Hogg said.
Shreyas led Delhi to the play-offs for two consecutive seasons, including the last time they reached the final. “Shreyas is a great team player,” Hogg said. Shreyas’ reaction to Delhi’s decision to retain the captaincy for Rishabh Pant is exemplary. Hogg added that Shreyas is more focused on the team.
Shreyas was injured. Shreyas missed out on a place in the 15-man squad for the World Cup as Suryakumar Yadav excelled in national cricket. Prosperous in the reserve column. He did not play in the 2019 ODI World Cup either. Some cricket observers believe that India would not have lost in the semi-finals if there had been someone like Shreyas at number four.
It was a tactical move by Delhi to allow Rishabh Pant to continue as captain. At the start of the second quarter in the UAE, Delhi topped the points table. The ball is considered to be the next important player in the Indian team. If the player is removed from the captaincy, it could lead to a setback for Delhi in the upcoming mega IPL auction. Delhi captained the ball again after realizing that it would cost crores to get the non-captain ball back from the auction. But the fact that the team continues to perform well also gives confidence to the management.
The next captain is Rohit Sharma?
