Rohit Sharma Should Lead India in All Formats (PC- Twitter)

New Delhi: While the whole world speculates over who becomes India’s next Test captain, ex-opener Gautam Gambhir has weighed in on the debate. Amid reports that KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant could be considered, Gambhir reckons Rohit Sharma should lead the side in all formats. Gambhir believes that will ensure consistency.

“In my book, Rohit Sharma should lead India across all formats with Rahul as his deputy. One captain across formats will ensure consistency in style and approach of the Indian team especially considering that we have another T20 World Cup later in the year,” Gambhir wrote in his column for The Times of India.

Rohit is already been appointed as the white-ball captain of the side and would take charge once he recovers.

He also hoped that Shikhar Dhawan is not left out of the XI.

“There is a thought that Shikhar should not be played in the XI. I feel that would be disastrous. Why would you then take Shikhar to South Africa and then leave him on the bench? It will make no sense at all,” Gambhir wrote.

Meanwhile, Rahul would be leading the side in the first ODI against South Africa on Wednesday (January 19) in the absence of Rohit. Eyes would be on him to see how he fares.

Eyes would also be on Virat Kohli, who would not walk out for the toss for the first time in many years.
