Former India opener Aakash Chopra opined on the frequent change of captains in the Indian cricket team in the last one year when a fan questioned the same. Chopra said on his YouTube channel,

“If you look at Sri Lanka, they are playing against Afghanistan, and Dasun Shanaka is leading them. England played against Australia, and Jos Buttler is still their captain. Australia chopped and changed a little bit but Pat Cummins led them in two out of those three matches (against England). If all teams around the world are playing with their original captains then why do we change our captains so much? It’s a valid question.” 

Apart from Rohit Sharma, other cricketers like Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Mohammed Shami take frequent breaks. Most of the cricketers in the ongoing three-match ODI series might get replaced in India’s XI when the senior players are back. Akash Chopra opined on the frequent change of captains and players in the Indian team and added that it hurts the equilibrium of the team. He further said how this doesn’t allow players to settle and perform well.

Chopra added,

“The captain is the one responsible for building a team. The same captain, the same coach helps a lot because the more time you spend with the team, the better you get to know each individual. If constantly, be it in West Indies, Zimbabwe, now in New Zealand, your captain is not available then there is a problem. Shikhar Dhawan led India in the last three ODI series. Suddenly when you go to Bangladesh, he won’t be the captain. The openers will change, and the captain will change. So when there are so many changes then your preparations are not good.”

Chopra further added that the Indian skipper shouldn’t be taking frequent breaks in international matches. He said,

“Now, the time for experimenting is gone. Rohit Sharma, I believe he is our captain for the 2023 ODI World Cup, should take minimal breaks and keep playing. If you need a break, take it during the IPL. If Team India is serious about winning the World Cup then they should start fielding their best XI as much as possible.”
