Indian Test team has been under the talks for a while. The players, the leadership and the future roadmap is something that has been discussed. Since the last 12 months, things haven’t got their way as they have suffered losses in crucial games and have faced a lot of criticism. It remains to be seen what the future holds for them.
2 players from the current Test team that can take up Test captaincy from Rohit Sharma
Rohit Sharma’s Test captaincy has come under a massive scanner following the loss against Australia in the World Test Championship final. Especially with the template set by Virat Kohli earlier, many fans and pundits have raised calls to sack him as a skipper and give the leadership to someone else. Let’s take a look at 2 players from the current Test team that can take up Test captaincy from Rohit Sharma
Ravichandran Ashwin can be the prime candidate from the current team that can take up Test captaincy from Rohit Sharma. Performance-wise, the off-spinner has been the lynchpin of the Indian bowling up and can read the game which is something better than some other players. It’s fair to say that no one better than R Ashwin reads the game well and him being part of the red-ball team only will give him time to focus more on the game. He has been World’s lead spinner and can take the team forward.
R. Ashwin should be full time Test captain!

Jasprit Bumrah is another player from the current Test team that can take up Test captaincy from Rohit Sharma He is India’s best fast bowler and has done some exceptional things. But of late he has missed a lot of cricket due to the back injury. He, however, has undergone the surgery and will be back in action soon. He already has captained India once in Tests in the longest format of the game when they toured England last year for one Test. Although, the team lost the game, but his leadership skills were lauded by many.
