Wasim Jaffer Wishes To See A New Indian Captain In 2023 Cricket World Cup
After some brilliant performances in the ongoing Cricket World Cup, India recently suffered a heartbreaking defeat in the semi-final of this tournament and finished their journey in this tournament. Later, the Indian veteran Test opener Wasim Jaffer has wished to see a new Indian captain in the next CWC. He has also revealed that name on his Twitter account.
Since Virat Kohli has taken the captaincy charge of the Indian national cricket team, India have performed very well in international cricket. Kohli-led India have already achieved many incredible successes in international cricket. However, India haven’t won any multination tournament yet under Kohli’s captaincy.
Kohli led India during the 2014 Asia Cup, but India failed to reach the final of that tournament. Later, he captained the national team in the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy where India lost the final against Pakistan.
Kohli-led India were one of the favourite teams in the 2019 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in England and Wales. They also played very well in this tournament, but New Zealand beat them in the semi-final, and that defeat also finished their 2019 CWC journey.
The two-time Cricket World Cup winners India will now have to wait for the next 2023 CWC to win another Cricket World Cup. India will play as the host nation in the 2023 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup.
Wasim Jaffer likes Rohit Sharma’s captaincy
The 41-year-old Wasim Jaffer wants to see Rohit Sharma as the Indian captain in the next Cricket World Cup. He has asked the fans if it is the right time to change India’s limited-overs captaincy from Kohli to Rohit.
Jaffer recently tweeted, “Is it time to hand over white ball captaincy to Rohit Sharma? I would like him to lead India in 2023 World Cup🏆”

Rohit Sharma has a high record in captaincy
If Virat Kohli is currently the top-ranked Test and ODI batsman, Rohit Sharma is the second-ranked ODI batsman. Like Kohli, Rohit is also a consistent performer for India with the bat. In the 2019 CWC, Rohit is the leading run-scorer (last updated on 13th July 2019) with 648 runs in nine innings with an average of 81.00. He hit five centuries in this tournament which is the record number of centuries for a batsman in a CWC edition.
At present, Rohit is playing the vice-captain role for the national team in limited-overs cricket. In crucial moments, Rohit also advises the national team.
Moreover, Rohit has also an excellent record in captaincy. Till the date, he has led the Indian side in two international tournaments – 2018 Nidahas Trophy (T20I format) and 2018 Asia Cup (ODI format) and India won both those tournaments. Also, under his captaincy, Mumbai Indians have won five trophies (four IPL trophies and one Champions League T20 trophy).
