In the absence of Rohit, this bowler will become the captain! There may be major reshuffle in the team. Jasprit Bumrah captain India against Engl in absence of Rohit sharma | Patrika News


The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has not announced the name of any vice-captain for this match. But in the Test series played against South Africa, fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah was made the vice-captain of the Indian team. In such a situation, Bumrah can captain India in this match. If this happens, then 15 years after veteran spin bowler Anil Kumble became the captain of the Test team, a bowler will captain the Indian team.

It is also believed that this responsibility can be given to Rishabh Pant. The 24-year-old Pant recently led India in the T20I series against South Africa. However, his captaincy was also criticized a lot. But with the full confidence of the selectors, Pant can get this responsibility.

There are also speculations that Virat Kohli, the former captain of the Indian team, can captain again for this match. Virat Kohli had resigned from the captaincy earlier this year on the tour of South Africa. KL Rahul was given the command of the team in his place, but KL Rahul is also not in the team on this tour.

Let us tell you that the Indian team will play its last Test match against England between July 1-5. Last year, due to Kovid-19, the last match of the 5-match Test series being played between the two countries could not take place. India is leading 2-1 in this series. In such a situation, even if this last match is drawn, then India will win the series. India last won a series in England in 2007 under the captaincy of Rahul Dravid.
