Virat Kohli’s Replacement As India Test Captain
“Rohit Sharma, in my opinion, should captain all three formats. If he is 100% fit, he should captain all three formats “Harbhajan stated to Sports Tak.
“If Rohit believes he does not want to captain all three formats. Then, in Test cricket, I’m rooting for Jasprit Bumrah.
“Jasprit Bumrah outperforms the rest of Team India’s match-winners. How many matches has Jasprit Bumrah won for us? Probably only one bowler has done so. So, if Rohit Sharma is unavailable, Jasprit Bumrah will captain the Test team “He stated.
Meanwhile, Rohit has returned to captain the white-ball teams for the home series against the West Indies. Due to a hamstring injury, the opener missed the South Africa tour.
