Former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh has suggested that Rohit Sharma can be considered for T20 International 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 Indian Premier League, 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.
