Virat Kohli stepped down as India’s Test skipper on Saturday (January 15). His decision arrived after India lost the Test series to South Africa 2-1, after losing the IND vs SA 3rd Test on Friday. Virat Kohli had stepped down as T20I skipper in November 2021 and BCCI also snubbed him as ODI skipper last month. Rohit Sharma, who already holds the captainship of ODI and T20Is, is the front runner for the new India Test captain.

With 40 Test wins, Kohli ended as the Indian skipper with the most Test wins during his captainship career. Under Kohli, India comprised one of the strongest Test teams who dominated opponents on foreign soils too. The selection of the playing XI would be affected with Virat Kohli leaving his captainship role. Here we talk about Team India’s probable playing XI in Tests after Virat Kohli’s step down as skipper.

Rohit Sharma is highly expected to lead the Indian side in Tests. Moreover, he will also plays as an opener for the team. With his excellent batting performance in Tests at home as well overseas in the last two years, Rohit Sharma has proved that India cannot get a better Test opener than him.

Last year, the right-handed batsman mustered 906 runs in 21 Test innings at an average of 47.68, hitting 2 centuries and 4 half-centuries in the process.
