It is known that Hardik Pandya missed the remaining matches of the World Cup due to injury. With this, KL Rahul was appointed as the vice-captain in Hardik’s place. Rahul will act as the vice-captain in the remaining matches of the World Cup. But even after the World Cup, there is no chance of Rahul continuing as the vice-captain. If all goes well, there is a chance that Rahul will take the reins of Team India as Rohit’s successor in the Test and ODI formats. Rahul, who was disappointed with his poor performance last year, then lost the vice-captaincy and the place in the Test team. Rahul’s poor performance was severely criticized. Venkatesh Prasad, a former cricketer from Rahul’s home state, Karnataka, targeted Rahul and criticized him severely. Rahul was injured while playing in IPL and missed the WTC final. But after recovering from the injury, Rahul’s playing style changed. Again reminds me of earlier Rahul. Apart from being impressive as a wicket keeper, he stands as the backbone of the batting department. The captain also has full faith in Rahul. Hardik Pandya has grown at the same time when Rahul lost his form and struggled. As Hardik gave the trophy to Gujarat Titans in the first season of his captaincy in IPL. After the T20 World Cup in 2021, the reins of the Indian team in the short format went to Hardik’s hands. Hardik became vice-captain in ODIs as well. With this, the campaign started that Hardik will become the captain in white ball formats after Rohit. But with Hardik Pandya often getting injured and Rahul regaining his rhythm, it has become interesting to see who will be the captain in Tests and ODIs after Rohit. If Rahul continues this form, there is a possibility that he will become the captain in both formats. Because just like Rohit, Rahul can also cool things down. At the same time.. frequent injuries are likely to turn negative for Hardik. Even if Rahul is not the captain in ODIs, he is sure to be the captain in Tests. Not only that, there is another similarity between Rohit and Rahul. Rohit Sharma, who could not play in the 2011 World Cup, played in the 2015 World Cup as a player only. Acting as vice captain in 2019 and leading the team as captain in 2023. Like Rohit, Rahul also failed to get a place in the 2015 World Cup. Rahul, who joined the team as a player in the 2019 World Cup, got a chance to act as the vice-captain in 2023. And it has to be seen if Rahul will also captain the Indian team in the next World Cup.
