Sharma needs to retire. Give the captaincy to Hardik.” She also praised the bowling lineup of India. The fan said: “Arshdeep Singh is way forward.”

If Shami is firing, he is good. If not then, a decision needs to be made. Chahal should have played for India.” the England fan added.

“Axar Patel did not do a lot. I would actually have in Rahul Tewatia. He is lovely.” the female fan concluded. However, fans found the video interesting as the England fan also raised her voice to remove Rohit Sharma from the T20I captaincy of India.
