The selection committee led by Chetan Sharma has finalized Rohit Sharma’s name as Team India’s new Test captain. There was a question mark on his fitness, but the 34-year looked sharp during the first ODI against West Indies at the Narendra Modi stadium.
The selectors are convinced and will announce his name before the Test series against Sri Lanka. Rohit was the designated vice-captain for Test series in South Africa, but the veteran was ruled out after injuring his left hamstring in Mumbai.
Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul and Jasprit Bumrah were the other contenders, but according to insidesport.in, the wise men have voted in favour of Sharma.
