Former India all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has backed Rohit Sharma to lead the T20 side and feels that India should try the split captaincy formula to remove the burden from shoulders of Virat Kohli.  The current India skipper is currently leading the side in all 3 formats in international cricket and Yuvraj suggested Rohit can lead India in the shorter formats, given his success in Indian Premier League over the years. 

"Earlier there were only two formats so it was easy for a captain to manage. Now there are 3 formats If the load on Virat is more than maybe they should try somebody else for the shorter formats. Rohit has been very successful," Yuvraj Singh told AajTak.

The selectors are keen on rotating and resting top players at a regular basis. In the lead up to the 2019 World Cup, Virat Kohli was rested from quite a few T20I assignments wherein Rohit Sharma led India and found a lot of success. The left-hander also said it's up to to the team management to make the call if they are considering the workload of the world's best batsman.

"I don't really know. They have to decide how much workload Virat can take. Do they need to try somebody else for T20? It completely depends on how they want to go for the future. Virat has been the best batsman. How to manage his workload? It is completely team management's call.
