All eyes are on Rohit Sharma during today’s squad announcement, as the Mumbai batter has not participated in T20 Internationals since India’s semifinal exit in the T20 World Cup 2022. Meanwhile, reports suggest that Kohli has requested a break from white-ball cricket without specifying a timeline.

Considering Hardik Pandya’s ongoing ankle injury, there is speculation that Rohit Sharma might be asked to lead in the T20s. The T20 series against South Africa is significant for the Men In Blue, serving as preparation ahead of the T20 World Cup in 2024.

In January, India will host Afghanistan for a three-match T20 series before engaging in a five-Test series against England. Following the conclusion of IPL 2024, Indian players are expected to head to the T20 World Cup.

While the BCCI has extended head coach Rahul Dravid’s tenure to ensure continuity, whether Rohit Sharma will lead the team in the shortest format remains uncertain. Notably, Rohit continues to be India’s designated captain in all formats, as announced by the BCCI in December 2021.
