After Shikhar Dhawan’s named India ODI captain, Deep Dasgupta calls for stable leadership

Shikhar Dhawan was named captain of Team India for the three-match ODI series against the West Indies and former Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Deep Dasgupta wants BCCI to focus on stable leadership.

Recently, pacer Jasprit Bumrah had led Team India after Rohit Sharma was ruled due to COVID-19.

Now, Dhawan will be leading Team India in the three-match ODI series, with Ravindra Jadeja as the vice-captain.

The Men in Blue will be squaring off against the West Indies for a three-match ODI series and five-match T20I series, from July 22.

“It is very important for the team to have a stable captain. The position of the captain had been really in the last few months, especially during England Test or Ireland tour. Due to injury and any other reason, we had to shuffle between captains. But now Rohit is fit and is available for the upcoming games,” Deep Dasgupta told ANI.

All the teams are now looking forward to the T20 Men’s World Cup, which will be held in Australia in October. Dasgupta said that Team India should focus on every remaining game before the World Cup.

“With only 2-3 months left for the T20 World Cup, there are many players who have showcased their spectacular performances. India is left with 20-22 games before the World Cup, so the selectors might have started shortlisting the players for the big tournament. Each and every match will be very important from now on,” said Dasgupta.
