World Cup-winning former all-rounder Yuvraj Singh, while speaking in an interview said that India can try split captaincy if the Team India Captain Virat Kohli is overloaded with work, as Kohli is already handling the leadership role in all 3 formats in international cricket.
Singh allegedly suggested Rohit Sharma can lead India in the shorter formats. Singh however said it’s up to the team management to take the call.
Sing in a statement said, “Earlier there were only two formats so it was easy for a captain to manage. Now there are 3 formats if the load on Virat is more than maybe they should try somebody else for the shorter formats. Rohit has been very successful. I don’t really know. They have to decide how much workload Virat can take. Do they need to try somebody else for T20? It completely depends on how they want to go for the future. Virat has been the best batsman. How to manage his workload? It is completely team management’s call.”
Well, India has never tried split captaincy so far but the selectors seem to be keen on rotating and resting top players on a regular basis.
