For any player to be in contention for the Indian Test captaincy role, it is ominous that the player is a well-set member of the Indian Cricket Team across all three formats. Apart from Rohit and Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah and Rishabh Pant are the only couple of players who have a guaranteed spot in the first XI across all three formats.

With Rishabh Pant still taking baby steps towards his international career, Jasprit Bumrah seems to be the third choice for taking over India’s Test captaincy after Virat Kohli’s step down. Bumrah has asserted himself as a legend of the sport in only a quick amount of time he has been in the international circuit and the BCCI rewarded his efforts by appointing him the vice-captain of the Indian ODI squad for the South Africa tour when Rohit Sharma was ruled out. Thus, he can also be a great captaincy material for the future.
