Focus on ODI World Cup, Indian T20 team set for overhaul | Cricket News – Times of India

Veterans likely to be phased out over the next yearNEW DELHI: The debacle in the T20 World Cup last year was thought to be the lowest point in India's T20 cricket. The Indian cricket board (BCCI) was prompt to ring in changes by making Rahul Dravid the head coach and Rohit Sharma was anointed the all-format captain after Virat Kohli. The change of guard promised a revamp in how India would approach its T20 cricket looking at this ongoing T20 World Cup.

Dravid asserted that T20 cricket will now take a backseat with the next T20 World Cup still ...
