Recently, BCCI officials called a meeting to review the performance of Team India in the World Cup 2023. Future programs were also discussed in this meeting. Captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid were associated with BCCI officials here. During this, Rohit Sharma spoke clearly to the BCCI officials about the possibility of playing in the next T20 World Cup.
In a newspaper report, quoting the official present in the meeting, Rohit Sharma told the board members, ‘If you want to select me for the T20 World Cup, then tell me about it right now.’ According to the report, all the officials, selectors, and coach Rahul Dravid present in the meeting seemed unanimously willing to hand over the command of the T20 World Cup to Rohit Sharma.
