Former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh has suggested that Rohit Sharma can be considered for T20 captaincy if Virat Kohli feels "overloaded" by leading the side in all three formats. Rohit, the vice-captain of India's limited-overs sides, has been the most successful captain in the IPL, leading Mumbai Indians to four title wins and Yuvraj said it won't be a bad idea for India to try out split captaincy to ease the workload of the best batsman in the world.
"Earlier there used to be just two formats -- ODI and Tests, so it was perfect to have one captain. Now there are three formats and if Virat is feeling overloaded, maybe they should try somebody else for the T20 format. Rohit has been a very successful captain," Yuvraj told 'Aaj Tak' news channel. "I don't really know. They (team management) have to decide how much workload Virat can take. Do they need to try somebody else for T20? It completely depends on how they want to go for the future. Virat has been the best batsman. How to manage his workload? It is completely team management's call."
Yuvraj also took a dig at the team management for getting the crucial no.4 position wrong in the ICC World Cup in England earlier this year. "You need to identify who is your best talent and then back him. The highest score in no.4 position at the World Cup was 48'.
