There is little to hide in the fact that India needs to move away from Rohit Sharma in the T20I format.

While Sharma brings qualities as a captain and a leader - taking India to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2022 without Bumrah and Jadeja was in itself a laudatory job, especially after the group stage exit in the UAE last year - the opener just hasn’t been turning it up as a batsman in the shortest format.

He averaged 19 in the T20 World Cup 2022 and scored 116 runs at a poor strike rate of 106, with only a scratchy, sluggish half-century against the Netherlands to his name. Throughout the year, he’s had several low scores with innings of length and substance few and far between.

The main reason we champion the axing of Rohit Sharma as India’s T20I opener is he is over the age of 35-and-a-half now, and will be 37 at the 2024 T20 WC time. So there is little chance that Rohit will play in the 2024 T20 WC; hence, the selectors should identify their openers to replace Sharma as soon as possible and give the youngster proper game time and a long rope.
