Three Players Who Might Lead India If Virat Kohli Is Rested For South Africa ODIs; Following a debacle in the ODI series against New Zealand, the upcoming series against South Africa will hold a lot of importance for the Indian cricket fans. But the team management might once again look that as an opportunity to test the bench strength and rest the senior players.

By the time India plays South Africa, a lot of seniors in the side will be tired touring New Zealand.

As already India suffered a major blow with the injury of Rohit Sharma, BCCI might not risk the other seniors to get injured with the hectic schedule ahead. Thus, there is a good chance for a lot of youngsters to get the chance to show their calibre against South Africa.

Most probably, Virat Kohli might get the rest, as he is playing non-stop cricket while Rohit will continue his rehab period.

So, we came up with three captaincy choices for the ODI series against South Africa.

Yeah, in absence of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, Shreyas Iyer can lead the team, as he already got experience in leading Mumbai in domestic tournaments. He is one of the best captains available in the domestic circuit and also leads Delhi Capitals (DC) in the pressure-filled Indian Premier League (IPL).

Considering his captaincy skills in the domestic circuit, Iyer might well get the nod to lead India against South Africa.

Besides that, the Mumbaikar is in exceptional form with the bat to make things fall in place.
