Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah has been named the captain of the Indian team for the fifth Test at Edgbaston from Friday (July 1). Bumrah has been given the command of the team after Rohit Sharma got infected with Corona. He was made the vice-captain of the team in South Africa this year. His name has also been added to the category of caretaker captains, as Rohit is the regular captain of Team India in all three formats.
Looking at the history of the last 20 years, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane and KL Rahul played the role of caretaker captain. Of these, only Dravid, Dhoni and Kohli could later become full-time captains. Since 2002, three caretakers have won and two have lost. A draw is recorded in one’s account.
