Irfan Pathan wants Team India to prepare different leaders in 2024.

Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan believes Team India’s priority in 2024 should be finding suitable captaincy replacements for all-format captain Rohit Sharma. Rohit led India to the ODI World Cup final in 2023 and is currently leading the team in the ongoing two-match Test series against South Africa. There is no word on whether the veteran opener will continue to captain the Men in Blue in white-ball cricket in the future, including the T20 World Cup later this year.

Speaking on Star Sports, Pathan reflected on the successful tenure of Virat Kohli, who led India to the top of the Test rankings with his exceptional fitness and performance-driven approach. Irfan also acknowledged Rohit Sharma’s impressive leadership, which was evident in India’s World Cup campaign and their Asia Cup victory.

“There are chances of a lot of changes in 2024. So if we prepare two or three leaders, we won’t have too many problems. The focus should also be on which leaders you will prepare. The Indian team performed amazingly well for five years under Virat Kohli’s leadership in Test cricket,” Irfan Pathan said while speaking on Star Sports.

However, with the inevitability of change on the horizon in 2024, Pathan urges strategic planning to ensure a smooth transition in leadership. The focus, according to him, should not only be on identifying these future leaders but also on preparing them adequately to take on the mantle. This proactive approach is aimed at avoiding potential problems that could arise from a sudden vacuum in leadership roles.

“They reached the No. 1 ranking. His fitness was fantastic. He performed well in every match and extracted performance from the team in every match. Rohit Sharma also got the team to perform amazingly well. We saw it in the World Cup and he won the Asia Cup but who after Rohit Sharma?” Pathan added.
