India vs England 5th TEST: Jasprit Bumrah to lead India. Rohit Sharma was ruled after testing Covid positive
Rohit Sharma to MISS 5th TEST: In Rohit’s absence Jasprit Bumrah is leading India in the 5th TEST.
He is the first fast bowler in 35 years to lead Indian Test team in the rescheduled ‘fifth Test’.
The last pacer-captain that India had was the great Kapil Dev. Kapil was removed from captaincy in 1987. Since then India has never had a speed merchant leading the team in traditional cricket.
Bumrah is now the 36th cricketer to lead India in the longest-format since the country first played in 1932. The Gujarat pacer before the Edgbaston TEST had 123 wickets in his kitty in 29 Tests.
The Chairman of selectors Chetan Sharma had already said that he is being groomed as a future leader.
Cheteshwar Pujara opened in absence of Rohit Sharma: With the experienced Rohit out of the playing eleven, seasoned Cheteshwar Pujara opened for India along with young Shubman Gill.
