The third match of the four-match Test series between India and Australia will be played from March 1. Team India’s squad for the remaining three matches of the series was announced on 19 February. There was no change in the squad selected for the last two Tests. But no player was made the vice-captain of the team in this squad. KL Rahul was the vice-captain of Team India in the first two matches of the series. Now this post is vacant and Rohit Sharma and team management have to take a decision for this post. For the vice-captaincy of Team India, there are three players who can handle this post. Let’s take a look at those players.
Team India’s all-rounder player R Ashwin can become the new vice-captain of Team India. Ashwin also has the experience of captaincy. In such a situation, he can become the new vice-captain of Team India. Ashwin is a perfect player for this position in the team. Ashwin has done exceptionally well in Test cricket of late. Ashwin has taken 463 wickets in 90 Test matches at an economy of 2.78. At the same time, he has scored 3103 runs with the bat.
The second name in this list is that of Cheteshwar Pujara, popularly known as Test Specialist. Pujara has made many records in Test cricket for India. Recently he played his 100th Test match in Delhi. Pujara is one of the good choices to become the new vice-captain of Team India. Pujara plays only Test cricket for India. In such a situation, even if he becomes the vice-captain of the team, there will be less pressure on him as compared to other players and he will be able to perform better. Pujara has scored 7052 runs in 100 Test matches for India. During this, he has 19 centuries and three double centuries in his name.
Ravindra Jadeja is also included in the list of players who can become the new vice-captain of the Indian team. Jadeja, who made his Test debut for India in 2012, has impressed everyone with his performances. Jadeja is ranked first in the list of all-rounders in the ICC Test rankings. Talking about Test cricket, Jadeja has scored 2619 runs in 62 matches at an average of 36.89. At the same time, he has also taken 259 wickets. The team management can also think about Jadeja’s name for the vice-captaincy.
