Team India Captain: Team India is now preparing to go on a tour of West Indies. Although there is still time in this, but before that the Indian team will also be announced and it will be interesting to see which players get a place in the team and who are left out. Although there will be a massive reshuffle in the team, its chances are very high. It is believed that right now only Rohit Sharma will be seen as the captain of the Test team, but if not today then tomorrow, after Rohit Sharma, a new Test captain will also have to be chosen, many names are doing the rounds regarding this, but no one is sure. It will come in the hands of only one, who will be that player after all.

Rohit Sharma to lead Team India on West Indies tour

After playing two Test matches against the West Indies, the Indian team does not have to play any Test at the moment, then there will be a Test series directly in December. Because in the meantime Asia Cup and World Cup are also to be held, which will be played on ODI format this year. It should be believed that even after losing the final of the World Test Championship, the command of the Test team will remain in the hands of Rohit Sharma, but it will remain till December, it is difficult to say anything for sure. By the way, who will become the new Test captain, many names are still in the air regarding this. Nothing can be said for sure on how many more days Rohit Sharma will play Test, but former captain Virat Kohli can definitely keep playing Test for some years to come. But the way Virat Kohli has left the Test captaincy, it does not seem that he will take over the responsibility of captaincy again. After this, the name that comes to the fore the most is that of Ajinkya Rahane. He also has a good captaincy record in Tests. In such a situation, he has emerged as a contender for the captaincy, but it has to be seen what the BCCI thinks about him.

Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant can also become captain in Test, are still running out

Talking about the next contender for the Test captaincy of Team India, the names of Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant also come to the fore. However, right now both these players are injured and are also running out of Team India. We have not yet found a batsman of Rishabh Pant's tally in Tests, who can come down the order and score quick runs and also contribute amazingly in keeping. On the other hand, Shreyas Iyer is not very experienced yet, but he can be the next captain's contender, but it remains to be seen when he will return to the Test team.

Jasprit Bumrah and KL Rahul are also among the contenders.

Jasprit Bumrah and KL Rahul can also be considered as contenders for the Test captaincy, but both these players are still injured and are running out of the team. It is believed that both these players will not go on the West Indies tour, but will be fit before the ODI World Cup. How the performance of these two is in the upcoming World Cup, the claimant of their captaincy can rest on this. After this, another name that comes to the fore is Shubman Gill. Shubman Gill has emerged as the only player who is still young and plays all three formats for India. Team India may have lost in the WTC final, but it is certain that Shubman Gill will not only be on the West Indies tour, but will also be seen playing in many Test series to come. If the selection committee of the BCCI takes a long view, then Gill's claim for the captaincy can be taken most prominently.
