The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday announced the 18-member squad for the three-match ODI series against South Africa from January 19. ODI captain Rohit Sharma has been selected by KL Rahul to replace him as he has not recovered from injury. Despite Test captain Virat Kohli, Jaspreet Bumra has been selected as the vice-captain. Former India batsman Akash Chopra reacts to the team selection. Chopra said he felt “really embarrassed” by the absence of a “C” (captain) next to Kohli in the Indian team.
“There is no ‘C’ after Virat Kohli’s name. That seemed really embarrassing. Because it hasn’t happened in a few years, ”he said in a video uploaded to his YouTube channel. “We saw it in the recent T20 series. Kohli will take some time to leave the game. But Virat is not the captain now. ” The Indian team failed miserably in the T20 World Cup in the UAE earlier this year. Kohli, who said he would step down from the T20 captaincy before the World Cup, resigned from the T20 captaincy after the T20 World Cup. With this, Rohit Sharma was selected as the T20 captain in his place. Kohli was then removed from the ODI captaincy and the reins were handed over to Rohit Sharma.
