Why not Virat Kohli? If Ajinkya Rahane can come back and become vice-captain, why not Virat Kohli? I don’t know how Virat feels about captaincy. If the selectors are thinking about Rohit, I don’t know, but if they are thinking about Rohit, then I think Virat can be an option too, Prasad told Khelnow.
Prasad also spoke about Rishabh Pant’s appointment as captain: He was only going up these days. Let him come back. Look at what Rishabh Pant has done, which no wicket-keeper-batsman has done in the history of Indian cricket. Because in the history of Indian cricket, no wicket-keeper-batsman has made runs and centuries in Australia, South Africa and England.
Let him come back, let him start taking the field. We can’t keep assuming from a selection point of view that it’s possible, that it’s possible, we can’t be unprofessional, he added.
