Opener KL Rahul is all set to become the Indian team’s vice-captain for the three-Test series against South Africa, starting December 26, BCCI sources confirmed on Saturday.
Rohit Sharma was made deputy to Virat Kohli for the series but he was ruled out due to a recurring left hamstring injury.
“KL Rahul is going to be Virat Kohli’s deputy for the three-Test series,” a senior BCCI official confirmed. The PTI had reported on December 13 that Rahul is the frontrunner for the vice-captaincy.
