Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul, and Rishabh Pant are the front runners to replace Rohit Sharma when he bids adieu to international cricket. However, former India player Gautam Gambhir has named a surprising candidate who can be a very aggressive and successful India captain in the future.
The two-time World Cup winner took the name of Prithvi Shaw, who has led Mumbai in domestic cricket. But he is not on the list of national selectors who have not considered him for a long time despite his magnificent performances.
The latest case was the ongoing tour of New Zealand and the upcoming matches in Bangladesh.
Gambhir is not concerned and has backed Shaw to lead India. “Prithvi Shaw is one I feel can be a very aggressive and successful captain. You see that aggression in the way he bats,” said Gambhir.
