3 Reasons Why Virat Kohli Should Be Renamed India’s Test Captain
3. Better Workload Management
Rohit Sharma is the skipper of India in all three formats and his workload has definitely taken a toll on himself as well as the team. Rohit Sharma’s batting has definitely suffered as he has failed to score good knocks in recent times. India could not reach the final in Asia Cup 2022 and ICC T20 World Cup 2022.
Recently, they also lost an ODI series against Bangladesh. Hence, too much workload on a single skipper has affected the team’s performance. If Kohli takes up the skipper role in Tests, the workload will be divided and might bring better results.
