FOR a team that was appearing to be sailing smooth, India are suddenly finding themselves in a tight spot. From having the same captain across all formats, they shifted to two captains and now are without one for the Test team with Virat Kohli deciding to step aside. Amidst these changes, India are entering a new phase in the ODIs with an eye on the 2023 World Cup and the upcoming threematch series against South Africa could also turn into an audition for the Test captaincy as in Rohit Sharma’s absence, KL Rahul takes the mantle with Jasprit Bumrah name too doing the rounds.

The job ahead of the selectors is already huge. With Rohit handed the responsibility to revive the performance of the limited-overs team, it remains to be seen if they will make them Test captain, especially if one considers his fitness issues. At 34, it will be too much of an ask for Rohit to manage three roles with the national team apart from captaining the IPL side. Which leaves the selectors to consider Rahul as an option with the off-field calls being Bumrah.
