Team India's T20 team will go through significant progress in the following two years since senior players, for example, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Ravichandran Ashwin will be continuously backed out, BCCI sources said.

While apparently Ashwin & Dinesh Karthik have played their last games in the briefest arrangement, the BCCI will pass on it to Kohli and Rohit to settle on their T20 International future.

After the group's embarrassing loss in the T20 World Cup elimination round, a noticeably disturbed Rohit was reassured by lead trainer Rahul Dravid, who fronted the media just after the match.

The following T20 World Cup is as yet two years away and in the event that those conscious of improvements are to be accepted, there will be a spic and span group set up with Hardik Pandya being the captaincy choice.


"The BCCI never requests that anybody resign. It is a singular choice. Yet, indeed, with simply a small bunch of T20 Internationals scheduled for the year 2023, the vast majority of the seniors will focus on One Day Internationals and International Test matches in that cycle," a BCCI source told Media.

"You don't have to report retirement in the event that you would rather not. You won't see the majority of the seniors playing T20 one year from now," the source added.

Nonetheless, Dravid said it's too soon to discuss progress when the media got some information about the eventual fate of senior players like Virat Kohli and Rohit.

"It's too soon to discuss it right now soon after a semi-last game. These folks have been stupendous entertainers for us. Like you said, we have two or three years to ponder it," Dravid said.

While a portion of the players have been contemporary greats of the game, Dravid doesn't want anybody to write about them carelessly.

"There are a few great quality players here, so by no means the ideal opportunity to discuss this stuff or ponder this stuff at the present time.

"We'll have an adequate number of games, enough matches as we go on, and Team India will attempt to fabricate and plan for the following World Cup," the lead trainer added.

It is perceived that for the following one year, the T20 format will take a secondary lounge as India play something like 25 ODI matches, going into the following year's 50-over World Cup at home.


A glance at India's FTP schedule shows that till the 50-over World Cup, the group will play just 12 T20 matches as reciprocal occasions (home and away), beginning with three games in New Zealand one week from now.

With Shubman Gill remembered for the side and Rishabh as vice captain likewise a sharp opener, the syntax of Power Play batting could change.

Not to forget a wonderfully skilled Prithvi Shaw, who has been over and over disregarded in Dravid's spell as mentor.

Rohit and Kohli are enormous names & the BCCI is probably going to surrender it to them to make a choice about diagramming the course for the following period of their professions.

Rohit is currently 35 and in the following two years at 37 years old, he isn't supposed to lead a T20 International group in a worldwide meet.

In the event of Karthik's job as assigned finisher, it was a momentary plan remembering the T20 World Cup.

Taking everything into account, there was no serious danger discernment in the personalities of the resistance players during the whole competition. Three of his six wickets in six games came in the Zimbabwe match and an economy pace of 8.15 was not a huge deal. Washington Sundar, who before his wounds had established his place, will currently get a more drawn out rope. The main precarious call will be on KL Rahul, whose strike-pace of 120.75 was an impression of all that was off with the Indian group.

He is the main opener among top groups, who has played 2 maiden overs and has neglected to get into twofold digits against any top side (4 versus Pakistan, 9 versus SA, 9 versus England) in defining moments.

Rahul has neglected to change his game in spite of a ton of analysis and his non-execution has been glaring to the point that it will be challenging to overlook when the selectors meet to pick a group for a T20 series against Sri Lanka.
