After Rohit Sharma tested positive for Covid 19, Team India are looking for someone who could lead in the side in the fifth Test against England. Vice-Captain KL Rahul, who is also out of the squad due to an injury, has made the position of the Captain open for other players in the team. India have many experienced players in the squad who can take up the captaincy role in the fifth Test. Let’s take a look at the top 3 options that are at India’s disposal.
Three players who can replace Rohit Sharma as captain in the fifth Test:
- Jasprit Bumrah:
With Rohit Sharma infected with Covid 19, Bumrah is the top contender to be the captain of the team. The Indian team has not been led by a fast-bowler ever since Kapil Dev captained India way back in 1987.
Jasprit Bumrah seems to be the ideal pick for the captaincy role and will most-likely make his captaincy debut in the fifth Test. Bumrah was made the vice-captain of the team for the ODI series in South Africa earlier this year.
