Former Chief Selector Kiran More Thinks Rohit Sharma Can Become Indian Captain ‘Soon’

Kiran More also hinted at split captaincy in the Indian team. “I think the vision of the board drives these things. I believe Rohit Sharma will get a chance soon,” he said.

Former Indian head coach and part of the Indian coaching staff in Mumbai, Kiran More said Rohit Sharma could soon be India’s captain. He also pointed out the division of the captain on the Indian team. Separating captain means a different captain of different formats. England has so far implemented a captain’s separation policy.

More said Kohli has played under MS Dhoni and the Indian captain wants to stay in the position for a while with his phone.

“I think the board’s vision drives these things. I believe Rohit Sharma will get a chance soon. Virat Kohli is a brilliant captain who played under MS Dhoni. As long as he wants to be the captain of the ODIs and T20s, he will think again. You will learn a lot about these decisions after a trip to England, ”Kiran More told India TV on Wednesday.

“It (Split captaincy) should work in India. What the senior players think about the Indian team’s future is very important. With Virat Kohli, captaining three teams isn’t that easy plus he has to perform as well. And I give him the credit for it because performing in every format while captaining and winning… but, I think there will be a time when Virat Kohli will say ‘Now it’s enough, let Rohit lead the side’,” added More. 

Mumbai Indians’ scout and wicket-keeping consultant Mr. Kiran More had tested positive for Covid-19. Mr. More became asymptomatic and has recovered now. He was previously, the chief selector of the Indian cricket team. The 58-year old was India’s wicket-keeper in the 80s and 90s.
