India's cricket captain Rohit Sharma has dismissed recent rumours suggesting discussions with head coach Rahul Dravid and chief selector Ajit Agarkar regarding India's T20 World Cup plans. Reports had circulated claiming a meeting took place during the Indian Premier League season to discuss topics including Hardik Pandya's bowling frequency and Virat Kohli's batting position.

Rohit refuted these claims on the Club Prairie Fire podcast, cautioning fans against believing information not directly confirmed by himself, Dravid, Agarkar, or the BCCI. Additionally, Rohit addressed concerns surrounding Hardik Pandya's performance in IPL 2024, while highlighting Kohli's stellar form. Speculation over Kohli's T20 World Cup spot has dwindled following his impressive IPL performances. The BCCI is anticipated to reveal the T20 World Cup squad later this month or in early May.
