Sunil Gavaskar expresses his views over the next Indian captain

After India's series loss to South Africa, Virat Kohli handed over the Test captaincy on January 15, and former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has nominated Rishabh Pant as his successor. In his maiden season as captain of the Delhi Capitals in IPL 2021, the wicket-keeper batsman led the side to the playoffs. The 24-year-old has already received high accolades and is regarded as a future captain.

Pant's chances of getting the nod ahead of someone like Rohit Sharma, who has been the vice-captain in limited-overs cricket for a long time, will be difficult. KL Rahul, who led India to victory in the second Test against South Africa, is another contender for the position. Meanwhile, Gavaskar, who captained India in the 1970s, wants India selectors to choose Pant as the next captain, using Rohit Sharma of the Mumbai Indians as an example.
