KL Rahul, is coming with new Avatar for this test series Vs SA. Yes! Your read it right, KL Rahul has been named deputy to Virat Kohli i.e Vice captain for the Test series.
After Hamstring Injury, Rohit sharma Vice captain for Tests and Presently Selected ODI captain, has been rested for the test series. Due to unavailability of the Hitman, BCCI and Seniors selection committee was bound to accrue a new face to the position who is experienced yet fiery as Rohit is. So they came up, handing the job to the KXIP skipper and Staunch curator of the game KL Rahul.
The 29-year-old Rahul has played 40 Tests so far and has scored 2321 runs at an average of 35.16 with six centuries under his belt.
For the selectors, it was difficult to go back to Rahane who is no longer a certainty in the Test XI and possibly it is too early for Rishabh Pant to be elevated as vice captain of the national team. Rahul, currently, is seen as one of the few all format specialist batter.
Rahul has the right age and experience to be groomed for future when Kohli relinquishes Test leadership. He can take over the mantle for a longer duration.
