Rohit as T20I captain -

Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, India will participate in the T20 World Cup 2024, which will be held in the Caribbean and the USA, BCCI secretary Jay Shah announced on Wednesday at a Rajkot event. In the shortest format, India's full-time captain has been Hardik Pandya; but, following their heartbreaking defeat against Australia in the 2023 World Cup final, there are rumours that veteran batsmen Virat Kohli and Rohit may return for the T20 championship in June and Rohit will lead the team.

Jay Shah has confirmed -

In 2023 (final) at Ahmedabad, even though we did not win the World Cup after 10 straight wins, we won hearts. I want to promise you that in 2024 (T20 World Cup) in Barbados (venue for the final), under Rohit Sharma's captaincy, ham Bharat ka jhanda gaadenge (we will hoist the Indian flag)
~Shah said at the end of his speech

On Wednesday, Niranjan Shah, a seasoned cricket administrator and former first-class cricket player, was honored with a new name for the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.

India head coach Rahul Dravid, captain Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Siraj, Axar Patel, members of the coaching staff, and chairman of selectors Ajit Agarkar attended the event, which took place on the eve of the third Test match between India and England.
