Team India: League matches like the IPL have demonstrated how quickly the T20 format of cricket is developing. Regarding batting, innings-ending players are increasingly becoming less important. As metrics like strike and boundary rates become more important for gauging a batter’s potential. Questions over the futures of Indian captains Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and KL Rahul are growing more and more important. Particularly now that the Indian team has a multitude of options for the IPL 2023.

Recently, Ravi Shastri argued that the team must seek beyond the three senior professionals. And Aakash Chopra expressed a similar viewpoint when he issued a deadline of “90 days.” Chopra, the IPL analyst on Jio Cinema, confirmed Shastri’s views when asked about KL Rahul’s future in the game’s shortest format.

In light of Yashasvi Jaiswal’s rise and the availability of alternatives like the other centurion Shubman Gill and Mumbai opener Ishan Kishan. He agreed that if India continued to play the aggressive style of cricket in the T20I format they had promised to play in the previous T20 World Cup. It would be difficult for players like Rohit, Kohli, and Rahul to adapt to the format.

“Looking For a New Template”: Aakash Chopra

“I won’t see his (Rahul’s) case to be in isolation in any way, to begin with. I feel the next generation of cricketers for this format is almost getting ready. The previous generation of players will find it increasingly difficult to join the new template. In that case, you will see many previous generation players not being part of the T20 scheme of things. You don’t even know when Rahul will be available.”

Rise Of Yashasvi Jaiswal And Shubman Gill

When Chopra, the IPL expert on Jio Cinema, was questioned about Rahul’s T20I future in light of Yashasvi’s rise. And the availability of options like Ishan Kishan and Shubman Gill, he echoed Shastri’s opinions. He acknowledged that players like Rohit, Kohli, and Rahul will have difficulty adjusting to the format. If India continues to play the aggressive brand of cricket in the T20I format they promised at the previous T20 World Cup. Yashasvi and Rinku Singh are two names that have consistently come up when people are talking about. Which uncapped youngsters will make the Indian team following the IPL.

Aakash, who emphasized their domestic statistics to demonstrate that they can be all-format heroes for India, believes the discussion about the two players shouldn’t be limited to T20 cricket.
