Rohit Sharma to Lead India in ICC Champions Trophy and WTC Final 2025 Confirmed by BCCI

In a significant announcement, Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah confirmed that Rohit Sharma will continue to lead India in the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy and the World Test Championship (WTC) final, both scheduled for 2025. This confirmation follows Rohit’s exceptional leadership in guiding the Men in Blue to a historic victory in the T20 World Cup final against South Africa in Barbados.

Shah’s announcement, made in a video shared by the BCCI, underscored his unwavering belief in Rohit Sharma’s leadership capabilities. Reflecting on India’s journey to T20 World Cup glory, Shah revealed his earlier confidence in Rohit’s ability to steer the team to success following a heartbreaking loss in the ODI World Cup final last November.

“On November 23, after winning 10 matches, we won admiration but missed out on the Cup. In Rajkot, I declared that on June 29, we would win both admiration and the Cup and hoist the flag in Barbados. And our captain hoisted it there,” Shah recalled, emphasizing Rohit’s pivotal role in fulfilling their aspirations.

Delighted by the outcome, Shah expressed optimism about India’s future under Rohit’s captaincy, predicting a continued streak of victories in the upcoming ICC events. “After this win, the upcoming ICC events — WTC final and the Champions Trophy, I am fully confident that our team, under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy, will become champions,” Shah affirmed.

The confirmation of Rohit Sharma’s leadership in these prestigious tournaments signals BCCI’s strategic continuity and confidence in his ability to lead India to further cricketing milestones. With Rohit Sharma at the helm, Indian cricket fans eagerly anticipate more memorable victories on the global stage.
