Virat Kohli has given up his Test captaincy and BCCI selectors have yet again been given a major responsibility to choose a new captain. The Indian squad has no shortage of talented and experienced players to choose from. Choosing someone who can fill Virat’s shoes is a big task. KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant are all good players with huge potential, but it is more likely for Rohit to step up and be the new captain of the Test team. In the T20 format, he took over for Virat as captain, and the BCCI will favour him again this time.

A source from Times Now says, “Although Rohit Sharma appears to be the front-runner for the test captaincy, reports claim selectors may have a new meeting to consider India’s next test captain.” The other name is KL Rahul. According to the procedure, a designated vice-captain would become the next captain, although selectors might argue that captaincy in all its forms is too much for one person and choose a separate captain in tests. ”

KL Rahul would also be a good choice as he proved himself when he captained the squad in the second Test of the South Africa series. Only time will tell who becomes successful with this decision.
