New Delhi: Rohit Sharma has been doing a terrific job as Team India skipper and has never lost a single match since taking over as full-time captain of the national team. Sharma replaced Virat Kohli from all formats of the game and has led to as many as 5 consecutive series victories, all on home soil. Ex coach Ravi Shastri who’ll be returning to the IPL commentary team as part of the Hindi language said that both Sharma and Kohli is not getting younger, so alternative options will have to be seen.Also Read – WATCH: BCCI President Sourav Ganguly Does Allu Arjun’s Srivalli Step From Pushpa on the Sets of Dadagiri Unlimited- VIRAL Video

“So that’s where I’ll be looking at. I’ll be looking at Rishabh Pant (Delhi Capitals). I’ll be looking at Shreyas Iyer (Kolkata Knight Riders). Very closely.

And Hardik for the simple reason if that can energise in him a manner that can make him come out and play with gay abandon”, he told.
