After India's ouster from ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 in the semi-final, there has been a lot of discussion about the areas where the Indian team failed to deliver and how the 'Men in Blue' were completely dependant on the duo of captain Virat Kohli and his deputy Rohit Sharma when it came to scoring runs.

Accordingly, it is possible that after being knocked out of the World Cup, the Indian team will be under the Board of Control for Cricket in India's radar, who will be looking to discuss the possibility of split captaincy.

According to media reports, a board functionary stated that as a part of the preparations for the next campaign, India could look at the option of having Sharma captain the side in the shorter format whereas Kohli continues to lead the team in Tests.

The functionary further added that this would be the right time for Rohit Sharma to take over the mantle of the captaincy in the 50-over format. However, according to the functionary, the biggest concern for BCCI is the rumours of a growing rift between Kohli and Rohit.
