Rohit Sharma likely to replace Ajinkya Rahane as Test vice-captain for South Africa tour

Indian T20 captain Rohit Sharma is all set to replace his camaraderie Ajinkya Rahane as the Test vice-captain on South Africa tour. Rohit is currently on rest and will travel with the team for South Africa tour, where India is supposed to play 3 Tests and 3 ODIs matches. The India tour of South Africa is likely to start on December 26, delayed by a week due to scare of new Covid variant Omicron.

Ajinkya Rahane who is vice-captain of the Test team for 4-5 years, has led the Indian team to some remarkable victories, including the first-ever test match series against Australia. Rahane has captained the Indian team on various occasions due to the unavailability of regular captain Virat Kohli.

In Rahane’s captaincy, the Indian team have never lost any matches in test cricket. But due to his recent performances in recent times, he might not be the part of the team for the South Africa tour and in his absence, Rohit Sharma might be named the vice-captain of the test team.
