RAJKOT: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah on Wednesday confirmed that skipper Rohit Sharma will be captaining the Indian team in the ICC T20 World Cup that will be held in West Indies and USA this year. The BCCI secretary also expressed optimism that Team India will win the coveted T20 cricket prize and end their ICC trophy drought of over a decade.

Jay Shah was at the Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA) stadium, which has been renamed after former BCCI and SCA secretary Niranjan Shah ahead of the third Test between India and England, which will be taking place at this venue only.

"We may have lost the final of World Cup 2023. But we won the hearts of everyone by winning 10 matches in a row. I am confident that India will lift the 2024 T20 World Cup under Rohit Sharma's captaincy at Barbados," said the BCCI secretary.

India's last major trophy win was back in 2013 when they beat England to win the ICC Champions Trophy in the UK. Since then, India has shown incredible performances across ICC Cricket World Cups, ICC T20 World Cups and the finals of the ICC World Test Championship, but has fallen short every time of capturing the gold.

The tournament will kick off on June 1 and will be co-hosted by the West Indies and the US. India has been placed in Group A alongside Ireland, Pakistan, Canada and the US.
