However, KL Rahul will continue to be the vice-captain of the ODI and Test teams. In the absence of Rohit Sharma, he will lead with Jasprit Bumrah who will be vice-captain. In England, Jasprit Bumrah led India in the 5th Test.

But Hardik Pandya’s testing career seems to have come to an abrupt end. While Hardik didn’t say if he would continue to play in the Tests, InsideSport understands he won’t be considered for the Tests.

“It is important to manage your workload by being versatile. We have a lot of T20s and ODIs coming up and it won’t be possible for a versatile player to play all three formats. Instead, he will focus on white ball formats. When it comes to testing, we have Jadeja and Shardul for all-purpose slots and they did well. Once Deepak returns from injury, he will also be considered for testing,” said the BCCI official.
