“Pujara VC when his place in the 11 is not guaranteed?”, Twitter reacts as Cheteshwar Pujara is named vice captain for the Indian Test Team

India and Bangladesh will be involved in a two-match Test series. The first game will happen from December 14th. While KL Rahul will lead the squad in Rohit Sharma’s absence, Cheteshwar Pujara will be his deputy. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as Cheteshwar Pujara is named vice captain for the Indian Test Team.

An important Test for India

India will be without the services of Rohit Sharma for the first Test against Bangladesh. In the second ODI, the skipper suffered a thumb injury which forced Rohit to return back to India. Now that he is not fit, he is not available for selection. KL Rahul will lead the men in blue instead.

For India, it will be interesting to see how they go about their business against Bangladesh. They were poor in the ODIs and this will be at the back of their mind. Moreover, Bangladesh is a fine squad at home and with game changers like Shakib Al Hasan, the team cannot be taken lightly. With respect to World Test Championship, too, India has to win this series to give themselves a solid chance.

Meanwhile, interestingly, Cheteshwar Pujara was named as KL Rahul’s deputy. A few tournaments ago, Pujara was dropped from the Indian Team. It is after his productive stint in the County that Pujara got his chance back in the squad. Even now, his place in the team is not guaranteed. With Shubman Gill also in the team, it would have been doubtful if Pujara would play. However, now that Rohit is injured, Gill will open the batting and hence, Pujara will surely get his chance at No.3. There were other options such as Rishabh Pant and R Ashwin whom the team could have considered, though. Here is how Twitter reacted in this regard:
