How the captain of Team India changed…

Let us inform you that earlier this year in the Test series against South Africa, KL Rahul was given the captaincy in the absence of injured Virat Kohli. However, in the third Test, Kohli was the captain and he left the captaincy after losing the series.

In the absence of Rohit Sharma on the Africa tour itself, KL Rahul took over the captaincy in the ODI series. Recovering from injury, Rohit Sharma took over the captaincy in the series against Sri Lanka and West Indies.

After the IPL, Rishabh Pant was given the captaincy in the absence of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul in the 5-match T20 series against South Africa.

After this, Team India had to go on a tour of Ireland. Here Hardik Pandya was made the captain in the absence of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Rishabh Pant. Hardik was the fifth captain of the team this year.

Then, just before the Edgbaston Test on the England tour, Rohit Sharma became Corona positive, Jasprit Bumrah was given the command of the Test team. Bumrah was the vice-captain in the Test, so he got this responsibility.

Now Shikhar Dhawan has been made the captain of Team India for the three-match ODI series on the West Indies tour. Dhawan will be the 7th captain this year. However, Dhawan has captained before this as well. It was Dhawan who captained the Sri Lanka tour last year.
