KL Rahul to lead the ODI team in absence of Rohit Sharma
Selectors have finally moved on from Virat Kohli in the limited-overs format and announced Rohit Sharma as India’s new white-ball captain. However, Rohit is set to miss the upcoming ODI series against South Africa due to a hamstring injury. As a result, KL Rahul was appointed as the stand-in captain and Jasprit Bumrah as the vice-captain.
Players including the likes of Shreyas Iyer, Mohammed Siraj, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Venkatesh Iyer have been named to the squad. Selectors have shown faith in veteran batter Shikhar Dhawan and pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar despite a poor Vijay Hazare season. R Ashwin has also made a comeback to the ODI side as he is set to play his first 50 overs series in over 4 years.
