New Contender Emerges as Possible Vice-Captain for India’s Asia Cup and World Cup Squads

Jasprit Bumrah News

In a significant development following the appointment of Hardik Pandya as the ODI team’s vice-captain over KL Rahul, a potential shift in the leadership hierarchy has emerged. Speculation surrounds the likelihood of a new deputy for the Asia Cup 2023 and World Cup 203 squads, potentially involving Rohit Sharma in a different role.

Jasprit Bumrah scripted a remarkable return to competitive cricket, ending an absence of nearly 11 months. This comeback occurred in the inaugural T20I of a three-game series between India and Ireland at The Village in Dublin on Friday, August 18th.

When considering leadership seniority, Bumrah takes precedence over Pandya, given his role as the Test team captain in 2022. Furthermore, he had previously held the position of ODI vice-captain ahead of Pandya during the ODI tour of South Africa.

As outlined in a report from the news agency Press Trust of India (PTI), the reentry of Jasprit Bumrah is poised to present a substantial challenge to Hardik’s standing as the team heads into the significant upcoming events. Bumrah’s integration into India’s leadership core for these crucial occasions occurred earlier than Hardik’s inclusion, given his role as the vice-captain of the team led by Rahul during the second Test and ODI series against South Africa in January 2022.
