The Indian cricket team loses the three-Test series against South Africa. South Africa won the third Test by seven wickets in Cape Town from 11 to 14 January. Virat Kohli’s dream of winning the series in South Africa as captain was shattered. Team India is now scheduled to play in the ODI series against the African team. This year, India has to play fewer Test matches and more limited overs matches. Under such circumstances, we can see Kohli as the captain in very few matches.
The Indian team, which lost the Test series, will now face South Africa in three ODIs. In the absence of new ODI captain Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul will be the captain. Virat Kohli was removed from the ODI team captaincy ahead of the tour of South Africa last month. He stepped down from the T20 captaincy before the T20 World Cup.
The Indian team, returning from a tour of South Africa, will play two series at home. The West Indies will play a series of three ODIs and three T20I matches in India in February. Rohit will be the captain. Team India will face Sri Lanka after the series against the Windies. Sri Lanka will play two Tests and three T20Is in India. Kohli will captain the side in the Tests. At the same time, Rohit will be making a comeback in T20.
