With Rohit Sharma testing covid positive and the test match against England set to begin on July 1, some fans are concerned about whether Rohit Sharma will be able to recover in time and, if not, who will lead the final test.
Even though the chances of Virat Kohli leading the test in Rohit Sharma’s absence are remote, some fans on Twitter are vouching for the same. They believe it will be fitting for Kohli, who has led India to a 2-1 series lead. They also believe Kohli is deserving of this send-off, some have even requested that Saurav Ganguly use his discretion and name Virat Kohli as captain for the final test.
Rohit Sharma is expected to recover from covid before the 5th test, in the absence of Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant is expected to lead the team. Also, as strange as it may seem, India has never won a five-match Test series in England, and India has the opportunity to rewrite history in the fifth Test at Edgbaston, even if visitors draw the test.
