Indian captain Rohit Sharma was injured while fielding in the match. Later, the player left the field for treatment. At this time Indian fans are very worried. It was about who would lead Team India in Rohit’s absence. In situations where the regular captain is not on the field, the vice-captains take charge of the team. But Indian vice-captain Hardik Pandya will not play in the match against New Zealand due to injury.
With Rohit and Hardik not on the field, fans thought that Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah would take over as the team’s captain, but another player led the team.
Wicketkeeper-batsman KL Rahul led India after Rohit was ruled out with an injury. Rohit returned to the field soon after but Rahul was lucky enough to lead the team in the World Cup for a while.
Earlier, Rahul was the vice-captain of the Indian team in ODIs till the end of 2022. Rahul lost his place in January when Hardik Pandya was announced as India’s vice-captain. Earlier, Rahul led India in the first two matches of the ODI series against Australia before the World Cup. India rested Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya from these games. India won both the matches played under Rahul.
Rahul has led India in a total of nine matches in ODIs. He helped the team win six of these games. Rahul, who made his debut as India’s ODI captain in the ODI series against South Africa, faced defeat in all three games of that series. Then Rahul won the series against Zimbabwe 3-0 and led India to victory in one ODI against Bangladesh and two ODIs against Aussies.
