Rohit Sharma is as of now India's skipper in all organizations, having supplanted Virat Kohli in the job, yet considering the opener is now 34 years of age, he is expected to be replaced by a younger player in the next few years.
The 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) could give a smart thought of who could be India's next long-haul commander, as per previous India lead trainer Ravi Shastri. Rohit Sharma is right now India's captain in all configurations, having supplanted Virat Kohli in the job, however considering the opener is as of now 34 years of age, he is relied upon to be supplanted by a more youthful player in the following not many years.
"Rohit's not getting any younger. Neither is Virat (Kohli). They'll have to look at who might be the captain two years, three years down the line," Shastri said on news channel.

Kohli surrendered as India's T20I commander before the 2021 T20 World Cup and was subsequently sacked as the ODI skipper. He then ventured down as Test commander after India's misfortune in South Africa this year and Rohit proceeded to supplant him in every one of the three jobs.
With Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, and Hardik Pandya all driving their particular groups in the IPL, Shastri said these are the players he will watch out for.
"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. Of course, KL Rahul (Lucknow Super Giants), the way he handles that side. 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."
The 2022 release of IPL starts on March 26 with Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings taking on the Shreyas Iyer-drove Kolkata Knight Riders at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
