The Indian team registered their spot in the Super 8 stage of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. Led by seasoned opener Rohit Sharma, the Men in Blue defeated Ireland in their first fixture, followed by a win over Pakistan and then the debutants and co-hosts USA. Pooled in Group A, the 2007 winners finished as table toppers and made it to the next stage easily. 

Rohit Sharma has been at the team’s helm since Virat Kohli gave up his captaincy. However, Sharma is approaching the end of his career, and someone else could replace him as skipper soon. 

Three players who could be India’s next white-ball captain after T20 World Cup 2024

In this article, we will look at three possible names who could replace Sharma as the next Indian skipper.

Indian all-rounder and vice-captain Hardik Pandya is one of the top contenders to be India’s next white-ball captain. Pandya, who had a slump in performance during the IPL 2024, came back stronger and picked some of the most crucial wickets for the side in the T20 World Cup 2024. The 30-year-old is one of the most reliable players and can turn the tide of the game. He has led India previously in the absence of senior players like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli and can be the next name to lead the side.
