BCCI secretary Jay Shah confirms Rohit Sharma will lead India in Champions Trophy and WTC in 2025 | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: BCCI secretary Jay Shah on Sunday confirmed that Rohit Sharma, who recently from T20Is after leading Team India to the T20 World Cup title in the USA & West Indies, will captain India in two major assignments next year-the Champions Trophy in Pakistan in February, and then the World Test Championship, where he hoped that India will win the final, scheduled to be played in Lord’s in London in June.
“I am confident that under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, we will win the WTC Final and Champions Trophy,” Shah said, while congratulating the Indian team on winning the ICC T20 World Cup in a video uploaded by ANI on ‘X’.
Rohit will turn 38 in April next year.
In the video, Shah has said, “I want to congratulate Team India for this historic win. I want to dedicate this triumph to skipper Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, (outgoing) head coach Rahul Dravid and Ravindra Jadeja. This was our third final in the last one year. We lost (to Australia, at the Oval) in June 2023. In November 2023, we scored 10 wins (in the ODI World Cup), and won the hearts of the people, but couldn’t win the World Cup (India lost to Australia in the final). I had said in Rajkot (on February 14 this year) that in June 2024 that we will win the hearts of the people, and also the T20 World Cup (in USA & West Indies), and plant the tri-colour (in Barbados). And our captain did it. In this win, the last five overs (of the South African innings) played a big role. For this contribution, I want to thank Suryakumar Yadav (took a great catch to dismiss David Miller at long-off), (Jasprit) Bumrah (bowled a game-changing over), Arshdeep Singh (bowled an economical second-last over) and Hardik Pandya (bowled the last over of the match). Now, our next target is the WTC final and the Champions Trophy.”

Incidentally, it was Jay Shah who had announced in February in Rajkot that Rohit would lead India in the 2024 T20 World Cup , while predicting that India will win the championship.
