” 7 Vice-captains in 7 months ” Twitter user comes up with an interesting stat ahead of T20I series against West Indies

KL Rahul was ruled out of the T20I series against West Indies. Hence, Team India has named Rishabh Pant as the vice-captain of the team. This was mentioned in the press release announcing the news that Washington Sundar was ruled out of the T20I series. Now, ahead of the upcoming T20I series against West Indies, a Twitter user has come up with interesting information about the vice-captaincy situation of Team India.

The T20I series against West Indies will have Rishabh Pant as vice-captain

The tournament will begin on 16th February at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. After whitewashing the ODI series, Team India will be high on confidence. However, West Indies is a better team in the T20 format. Hence, Rohit Sharma and co. will have a few challenges in the series.

One of the important assignments for India will be the T20 World Cup in Australia this year. The upcoming series against West Indies will be a vital series to try and fix a few gaps.


India has had seven vice-captains in the last seven months

Meanwhile, there is an interesting situation going around the role of vice-captaincy in Team India. As pointed out by a Twitter user, in the last seven months, India has had seven different vice-captains in all formats combined.


When Virat Kohli was the helm, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane were the vice-captains. However, when there were a few injury issues, the likes of KL Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara came into the picture. Now, when Virat had an injury in South Africa, KL became the captain and Jasprit Bumrah became his deputy. KL will now miss the upcoming T20I series against West Indies. Hence, Rishabh Pant will assist Rohit Sharma in the leadership decisions. While it is good to have options, Team India should quickly freeze on fewer options so that there is little confusion going forward.
