KL Lead The Test Virat Out
India’s Test team captain Virat Kohli had a spasm on his upper back this morning. He won’t feature in the second Test against South Africa at The Wanderers. The BCCI medical team will be monitoring him during the course of this Test match. KL Rahul will captain the side in his absence. “Unfortunately Virat has had an upper back spasm and hopefully he’ll recover for the next Test,” said Rahul after he won the toss and opted to bat first. This will be the first time Rahul will be leading the Indian team in any format of the game. He is also slated to lead the ODI team in the three-match series against South Africa which begins from January 19 onwards in Paarl, after Rohit Sharma failed to recover from his hamstring injury.
The All-India Senior Selection Committee has named Jasprit Bumrah as vice-captain for the 2nd Test. Team India batsman Shreyas Iyer was also ruled out of selection for the 2nd Test owing to a stomach bug.
