India Vs New Zealand Rishabh Pant
The Indian cricket team has been facing a leadership crisis for the past three months. Virat Kohli has stepped down as captain of the three formats. He was replaced by Rohit Sharma in the ODI and T20 squads. At the same time no decision has yet been made on the Test team captaincy. Not only captaincy, there is a lot of talk about vice captaincy as well. KL Rahul (kl rahul) was made vice-captain in ODIs and T20s. At the same time he also took over as the vice-captain of the Test team in the absence of Rohit Sharma on the tour of South Africa. He also had the opportunity to captain the Tests. Now that the issue has come to the fore once again, it seems that another vice-captain will appear in the Indian team. This time Rishabh Pant can take over the responsibility.
Over the past few months, he has captained the Indian team from Bhuvneshwar Kumar to KL Rahul and Jaspreet Bumra. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the vice-captain of the team in the ODI T20 series during the tour of Sri Lanka last year. At the same time, Rahul was regularly handed over the responsibility in ODIs and T20s. Rahul captained the ODI series on the tour of South Africa, while Jaspreet Bumra was selected as the first vice-captain. Now Rishabh Pant’s name is likely to join the list.
Rishabh Pant is likely to captain the side in the first match of the India-West Indies ODI series. Vice-captain Rahul will not be part of the squad for the first ODI of the series starting on January 6. He will join the second ODI. Under such circumstances, the Board of Control for Cricket in India is considering Pant’s name as Rohit’s commander. Sports website Inside-Sport quoted a BCCI official as saying, “Shikhar (Dhawan), Rishab could be either vice-captain. In the absence of Rahul, the responsibility would have been handed over to Jaspreet Bumra again. Bumra was not available for the series, however. Team India number one pacer has stepped down to reduce his workload. He retired from the ODI and T20I series against the West Indies to be available for the Test series against Sri Lanka.
