New Delhi: Virat Kohli is no longer the captain of Team India in any format. After T20, now Kohli has given up the captaincy of Test. He was removed from the captaincy of ODI. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has handed over the command of ODI and T20 to Rohit Sharma. Now BCCI is looking for a new captain for the test.
Many, including legend Sunil Gavaskar and Yuvraj Singh, have suggested the name of wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant as the captain of the new Test. He believes that Rishabh Pant is young and the perfect player to take over the captaincy. Rishabh Pant is the wicket-keeper bestman, from which he can get a big advantage. Before Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni was the captain of the team, who was a wicket-keeper batsman. He has won the T20 and ODI World Cup to Team India. He also won the Champions Trophy. Many veterans, including Yuvraj Singh, believe that the game can be better understood from behind the wicket.
Let us tell you that Rishabh Pant has consistently performed well in all three formats (Test, ODI, T20). Especially on foreign soil, his bat has spoken fiercely even in difficult situations. He has proved this on the tour of Australia last year and also on the tour of South Africa this year. Pant had led Team India to victory by playing an unbeaten 89 in the Gabba Test in January 2021. Recently, he also scored an unbeaten century in the second innings of the Cape Town Test. However, the team could not win this match.
