IND vs SA: The Test series between India and South Africa starts on December 26. However, after the departure of Rohit Sharma from the Test series, it remains to be seen who will be the current vice-captain.
India Vs South Africa, Rohit Sharma
IND vs SA: Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the upcoming Test series against South Africa. At present a question is of universal interest. It remains to be seen what the BCCI will do about team vice-captaincy. In fact, for this tour, Rohit was selected as the Vice Captain for the Test team. Rohit replaces Ajinkya Rahane. Rahane has been the vice-captain of the Indian Test team for a long time. However due to his poor performance over the last few months this position was taken away from him. Rohit Sharma has been selected as the Vice Captain. But, the vice-captaincy story came to a head again when Rohit Sharma was injured before the tour of South Africa.
Now it remains to be seen who will be elected after Rohit in the vice-captaincy. The India-South Africa Test series starts on December 26. The name of the vice-captain must be announced before the tour of South Africa. But the question is who is the vice-captain? Will it be Rahane again? Or will the vice-captain see Cheteshwar Pujara in the home Test series against New Zealand? Other names including KL Rahul can also be considered in this race.
Ajinkya Rahane ..
Rahane stepped down as vice-captain ahead of the tour of South Africa. But, as Rohit is not part of the team right now, the management may reconsider his name. He also has more experience serving as vice captain than any other player. If Rahane becomes vice-captain, he will also play in the playing XI. Rahane has been battling very poor form in recent times. But there is another side to the coin .. Rahane excelled in South Africa. Of the 3 Tests played here, his batting average is over 52. He scored a total of 266 runs. His best score at this point was 96. That means making Rahane the vice-captain and seeing if he takes the risk. However, in terms of Test career, Rahane should be told that this tour is do or die.
Cheteshwar Pujara ..
Pujara is an Indian Test specialist batsman, but his form has also declined in recent times. He did not score a century in Tests for a long time. However, if management does not have faith in Rahane, Pujara could still become the vice-captain of the Test team. Recently, Pujara also appeared as the vice-captain in the home Test series against New Zealand.
KL Rahul ..
If Rohit Sharma is not part of the Test series, it will be clear that KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal will be in charge of the opening. Management may hand over the vice-captaincy to KL Rahul with the intention of making something new in such situations. KL Rahul is also in good form. He also has some captaincy experience. It can be seen that these things are happening in his favor.
Ashwin or Bumra ..
If you do not see the batsmen and want to hand over the responsibility of team management vice-captaincy to the bowler, Ashwin and Bumrah may be good choices. Interestingly, both of them are regular members of the Test team. Also, two players were also in form with the ball. It remains to be seen whether this will benefit them.
