Team India's announcement for South Africa tour today, these players can get place

 Indian cricket team has eliminated New Zealand. After winning the T20I series 3-0, India have won 1-0 in the two-match Test series. After this, now Team India's new mission is the tour of South Africa, which has been pushed forward by about ten days due to the new variant Omicron of Corona. The Indian team's tour of South Africa will start from December 26 with a three-match Test series and then an ODI series of equal number of matches will be played in January. Team India can be announced today for this tour.

According to media reports, the team can be announced for the three-match Test and ODI series against South Africa today i.e. on Tuesday, December 7. With this, it will also be known whether Virat Kohli will continue to be the captain of India's ODI team or whether Rohit Sharma will be appointed as the captain of the team, who has become the regular captain of T20 International cricket at this time. Apart from this, it will also be confirmed who will be the new vice-captain in Test cricket. If Ajinkya Rahane is fit, he will continue as the vice-captain.

Now let's talk about which player can get a place in the team and which player can be out of the team. Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami will return to the Test team. In such a situation, it is possible that the backup wicketkeepers Srikar Bharat and Suryakumar Yadav may be dropped. Even the famous Krishna and Ishant Sharma can be dropped from the team. It remains to be seen which player is discharged as an opener or whether Rohit and KL along with Mayank Agarwal and Shubman Gill will also travel to South Africa.

Test team can be like this

Virat Kohli (capt), Ajinkya Rahane (vice-captain), Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Wriddhiman Saha (backup wicketkeeper), Axar Patel, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Umesh Yadav, Mohammad Siraj, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah.

Why Rohit Sharma should not be made Test captain, Sunil Gavaskar explained the big thing

Why Rohit Sharma should not be made Test captain, Sunil Gavaskar explained the big thing
Ever since Virat Kohli left the captaincy of the Test team, there has been a debate as to who will be the next Test captain in place of Virat Kohli. Although recently, Rohit Sharma was made the vice-captain of the Test team in place of Ajinkya Rahane, but still, question marks are being raised about whether he will become the captain of the Test team. Rohit Sharma was unable to participate in the Test series against South Africa due to injury. Apart from this, due to injury, he did not become a part of many important Test series. Now that the Test captaincy has come out after Virat Kohli has left the captaincy, then Rohit Sharma may be at the forefront of that race, but still he is not a strong contender for the captaincy.
Former India batsman Sunil Gavaskar has explained the reason why Rohit Sharma cannot be made the captain of the Test team. During a conversation on Sports Tak, Sunil Gavaskar said, 'The problem with Rohit Sharma is about his fitness. For captaincy, you need a player who can stay fit while playing in all three formats and is available for every match. Things are completely different with Rohit.
Sunil Gavaskar, citing the example of former Sri Lankan captain Angelo Mathews, further said, 'Angelo Mathews also had the same hamstring problem as Rohit Sharma and he too could not captain for long. If this happens to Rohit Sharma also, then you will have to make another captain again. It is better to replace Rohit Sharma with someone else now.
Apart from Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant are also in the race for captaincy. Now it will be interesting to see which player is trusted by the BCCI and selectors, making him the new Test captain of Team India. On the other hand, if we talk about Virat Kohli, then under his captaincy, Team India played 68 Test matches in which India won 40 and India lost 17 matches.
