Who next after Virat Kohli? | Cricket News – Times of India

Rahul, Rohit among contenders to be next captain
KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma are among the contenders to take over as captain when India play two Tests against Sri Lanka at home in February.
What is your take on the timing of Virat Kohli’s decision to step down as Test captain?
Rahul was vice-captain during the recent series against South Africa and led in the second Test, which Kohli missed due to injury.

A section within BCCI favours allowing Rohit to concentrate on the upcoming World Cups (T20 in 2022 and 50 overs in 2023) while a new Test team gets built around a new captain.
However, other BCCI sources said the selectors may stick with Rohit as all format captain while making Rahul vice-captain.

“Rahul is definitely a contender to become all-format captain. But as of now, Rohit is likely to get Test captaincy. However, a lot will depend on Rohit’s fitness and workload,” a BCCI source said.
