There
have
been
strong
indications
that
the
BCCI
has
started
the
transition
by
appointing

Hardik
Pandya
as
the
T20I
captain
with
the
just
concluded
T20I
series
against
Sri
Lanka
at
home.

Hardik
Pandya
Named
Rohit’s
Deputy

Being
the
vice-captain
of
the
side
in
the
white-ball
format,
Hardik
was
appointed
the
stand-in
captain
for
the
Sri
Lanka
series
but
it
will
be
interesting
to
see
if
the
board
brings
him
back
in
the
T20I
side
when
New
Zealand
arrives
in
India
for
the
limited-overs
series
later
this
month.

According
to
sources,
the
BCCI
wants
a
young
team
to
be
built
under
Hardik’s
leadership
for
the
T20
World
Cup
in
the
West
Indies
and
the
USA
in
2024.
Rohit,
along
with
another
former
skipper
Virat
Kohli
and
recently
sacked
vice-captain
KL
Rahul,
are
currently
not
a
part
of
the
shortest
format.

Rohit
hasn’t
retired
from
T20Is

However,
Rohit
on
Monday
(January
9)
confirmed
that
he
has
no
plans
to
‘give
up
on
T20Is’ and
he
will
take
a
decision
on
his
international
future
in
the
format
only
after
the
IPL
2023.

While
interacting
with
media
persons
on
the
eve
of
the
first
ODI
between
India
and
Sri
Lanka
in
Guwahati,
Rohit
on
Monday
said,
“Firstly,
it
is
not
possible
to
play
back-to-back
matches.
You
need
to
give
them
(all
format
players)
enough
breaks.
I
definitely
fall
into
that
as
well.
We
have
three
T20Is
against
New
Zealand.
We
will
see
what
happens
after
IPL.
I
have
not
decided
to
give
up
the
format.”

Hardik
to
be
Rohit’s
successor
in
T20Is?

Many
believed
that
Hardik
Pandya’s
appointment
as
the
T20I
skipper
meant
Rohit
will
not
be
returning
to
the
helm.
However,
the
BCCI
hasn’t
made
any
claims
about
sacking
Rohit
as
the
T20I
captain.

Rohit
last
played
a
T20I
game
in
the
T20
World
Cup
2022
in
Australia
where
he
led
the
Men
in
Blue
in
the
showpiece
event.
It
was
Rohit’s
first
assignment
as
India’s
skipper
in
the
World
Cup.
The
Men
in
Blue
were
knocked
out
of
the
competition
after
getting
defeated
by
eventual
champions
England
in
the
semi-finals.

Pathan
highlights
importance
of
Rohit
in
ODIs

Meanwhile,
former
India
cricketer
Irfan
Pathan
highlighted
on
Star
Sports
on
the
importance
of
Rohit
coming
back
into
form
with
the
ODI
series
against
Sri
Lanka.

Pathan
said,
“Coming
back
from
injury
is
never
easy,
and
the
biggest
challenge
would
be
for
Rohit
Sharma
to
come
back
into
form.
Which
is
important
for
a
leader.
Look,
Rohit
Sharma
as
a
white
ball
cricketer
for
India
has
played
tremendously
well
over
the
years
and
he
has
to
continue
this
form
and
make
his
legacy
even
better.
Fitness
will
be
a
challenge
along
with
his
return
to
form,
but
I
have
full
confidence
that
he
will
be
able
to
overcome
these
challenges
fully.”
