After India lost the three-match Test series 1-2 against South Africa, Virat Kohli relinquished the Test captaincy. Virat Kohli played the 99th Test match on the tour of South Africa. If he wanted, he would have played the 100th test for the country under his captaincy, but he left the captaincy before that and now he will go to play his 100th test match under the new captain. It is going to be announced soon.
Actually, the selectors of the Indian team are going to declare Rohit Sharma as the full time captain of the Test team. In this way, Virat Kohli can be seen playing the 100th match of his Test career under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. According to a report in InsideSport, “The selectors are set to name Rohit Sharma as India’s new Test captain. Rohit Sharma will make his full-time Test captaincy debut in Virat Kohli’s 100th Test match.”
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the selectors had declared Rohit Sharma as the regular captain of the limited overs team in December and now Rohit Sharma will also be declared the captain of the Test team before the Test series against Sri Lanka. Rohit Sharma has currently cemented his place in the Test team as an opener and is regularly playing for Team India in all three formats.
