New Delhi: The fourth match of the 5-match Test series between India and England is going on. In the first innings of this match, the Indian batsmen disappointed everyone. However, in the second innings, the players took over the team. While Rohit Sharma scored a century, Pujara played a half-century. At the same time, captain Virat Kohli, Shardul Thakur and Rishabh Pant also played some good innings in the end. But the team’s vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane was once again a flop. After which he is almost certain to be out in the next Test.
Team India’s vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane, like this entire series, once again flopped in the fourth Test. In the first innings, Rahane was dismissed for only 14 runs, while in the second innings, Rahane could not even open the account. The way Rahane has played in this series so far, it is surprising to see that Virat Kohli gave him another chance in the fourth match in a row.
Let us tell you that Rahane has been in very poor form in this entire series and he has hit only one fifty so far. In such a situation, it was believed that in the fourth Test, Kohli would give a chance to Suryakumar Yadav in place of Rahane. But this did not happen and Kohli once expressed confidence in Rahane only. But now Kohli will not make such a mistake again. In such a situation, Team India can also get a new vice-captain in the next Test.
These players are the biggest contenders to become the new vice-captain
Rohit Sharma: If Ajinkya Rahane is discharged from the next Test, then Rohit Sharma is the biggest contender to become the new vice-captain of the Indian team. Rohit is already the vice-captain of India in limited overs cricket and now he can be entrusted with this responsibility in the Test format as well. Rohit Sharma has also performed well with the bat in this test series.
Rishabh Pant: Apart from Rohit and Rahul, Rishabh Pant can also become India’s vice-captain. It is certain that Pant is going to be a part of the Indian team for a long time now. He has achieved this position on the strength of his brilliant batting. Apart from this, Delhi Capitals have performed brilliantly this year under the captaincy of Pant.
KL Rahul: Rohit Sharma’s opening contender KL Rahul is also a big contender to become the new Vice Captain of Team India. KL Rahul is a sensible and calm player and apart from this he has also been captaining the Punjab Kings team in the IPL for a long time. In such a situation, Rahul is also a big contender for this post.
