After the end of the first Test match, former Indian team player S Badrinath has raised questions on the captaincy of Rohit Sharma.
In the first Test match played in Centurion, the Indian team had to face defeat by an innings and 32 runs in the first Test match against South Africa. The players of the Indian team failed to show good performance in this match. After the end of the first Test match, former Indian team player S Badrinath has raised questions on the captaincy of Rohit Sharma.
According to S Badrinath, Virat Kohli should captain the Indian team in Test cricket. According to him, Rohit Sharma’s record outside India is quite useless and he has also questioned his place in the playing XI.
S Badrinath said on his official YouTube channel, ‘Virat Kohli has scored more than 5000 runs in 68 Test matches as captain and has won 40 of them while he has had to face defeat in 17 matches. He also captained very well in the series against Australia and played an important role in his team’s victory.
Why is Virat Kohli not the captain of the Test team? Virat is a better batsman than Rohit in Tests. After all, why has a weak player been given the captaincy of the team in his place? Even though Rohit Sharma is a big player and has scored a lot of runs, he still has to prove himself as an opener outside India. So why is he there?
The second and final Test match between South Africa and India starts from January 3.
Let us tell you, the second and final Test match between South Africa and India is starting from January 3 in Cape Town. In the first test match, the bowlers of the Indian team were not able to bowl well and this was the reason why they had to face defeat. The Board of Control for Cricket in India has included Avesh Khan in the team for the second Test match in place of Mohammed Shami.
Rohit Sharma was not able to bat well in the first test match but now he will have to bat well in the second match and make his team win. Talking about Virat Kohli, he had scored 76 runs in the second innings of the first test.
