New Delhi. 29 June is going to be a historic day for Indian cricket. On this day, a T20 World Cup match is to be held between India and South Africa. India won the T20 World Cup for the third time and South Africa reached the T20 World Cup final for the first time 37-year-old Rohit Sharma has a chance to win his first World Cup as captain. This is also believed to be the last T20 World Cup for Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. It is likely that after this both these cricketers will focus on ODIs and Test matches. The next T20 World Cup is to be played in 2026.

Both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have won the Cricket World Cup as players. Rohit Sharma was a member of the team that won the world cup in 2007 under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. 35-year-old Virat Kohli has been a member of the team that won the ODI World Cup in 2011. However, Virat and Rohit could not win the World Cup as captains. Virat has left the captaincy long ago. Rohit Sharma is the captain right now. It is believed that he will not captain India in the T20 format after the T20 World Cup 2024. In such a situation, this is his last chance to win the ICC trophy as a captain.

Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma had distanced themselves from India's T20 World Cup after the T20 World Cup 2022. Both of them played their first T20 match for India in 2024 after about one and a half years. The reason is clear that many players of India were injured at that time. There were clouds of doubt over Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant playing in the T20 World Cup 2024. For this reason, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were called back to the team. With Rohit and Virat being called to the team, it became clear that this could be the last T20 World Cup for both of them. Therefore, it is certain that whether India wins or loses the trophy, this could be Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli's last T20 World Cup and last T20 International match.

Jadeja may also hardly be seen in the next World Cup
It is being said about all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja that this could be his last T20 World Cup. 35-year-old Jadeja gives balance to the team. Everything from Jadeja's fitness to his game is excellent. When it comes to making a place in the team after two years, he will be 37 years old.
In such a situation, the selectors would like to go with young cricketers. The team already has a player in the form of Akshar Patel, who can play a dual role just like Jadeja.
