Currently, Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah has been kept on standby to lead the team in the 5th Test.

“Rohit is still in isolation. If Rohit tests negative on Wednesday, he will likely be available for the match. He is match-fit and shouldn’t be a problem,” a member of the selection committee told InsideSport.

IND vs ENG LIVE 5th Test: Will he do it or not? Final decision on Rohit Sharma availability till this evening, Jasprit Bumrah will captain in his absence: India vs England Follow live updates

Will Rohit Sharma play the 5th Test? Team India captain Rohit Sharma tested positive for COVID-19 last week. He missed the last day of the practice match against Leicestershire.

  • Rohit Sharma is compulsorily in isolation till this evening
  • He will have a test in the morning and evening. Two negative PCR tests clear Rohit and make him available for the rescheduled game.
  • The Indian captain was match-fit and was quick to leave before going into isolation.
  • But the big question will be – Will Rohit be physically and mentally ready for the all-important Test after the COVID match?

If Rohit Sharma doesn’t play then who will captain India? India does not have an official vice-captain in Rohit’s absence.

Should Rohit miss out, India will have to pick a new captain. Jasprit Bumrah, who was named vice-captain in South Africa for one Test match, will take over if needed.

Chetan Sharma will take the final decision on this this evening.

“Jasprit has been informed about the situation and is ready to lead. Look, Rishabh is still very young and needs to be ready to lead in Tests. So for now, Bumrah is our best bet.” A BCCI official informed InsideSport earlier this week.

If Rohit Sharma is not able to play then who will open for India? India has already injured KL Rahul, the vice-captain. Mayank Agarwal has reached Birmingham as the cover of Rohit Sharma. But it is unlikely that the team management will draft undercooked Mayank in the XI.

If Rohit is not available, there is a good chance for him that wicketkeeper-batsman KS Bharat or Cheteshwar Pujara will be given the responsibility of opening for India along with Shubman Gill.

India’s Test Team: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Hanuma Vihari, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rishabh Pant (wk), KS Bharat (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Mohd Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohd Siraj , Umesh Yadav, Prasidh Krishna
