Team India has been announced for Zimbabwe tour, Shikhar Dhawan has once again been given the command of the three ODI series.

Till then the Indian team will go through many changes. Meanwhile, news is coming that Rohit Sharma will remain the captain of Team India, as well as the responsibility of vice-captain can be given to Hardik Pandya. It is believed that Hardik Pandya will become the vice-captain of the Indian team before the T20 World Cup.
Till now KL Rahul was the vice-captain of the Indian team
KL Rahul used to be the vice-captain of Team India. But he has not played any match since IPL 2021. In such a situation, not only the captain is changing in every series, as well as the vice-captain has also been changing. Sometimes Hardik Pandya became the vice-captain and sometimes Ravindra Jadeja became the vice-captain. But now it seems that BCCI is preparing to replace KL Rahul with Hardik Pandya as the permanent vice-captain. This has been disclosed in a report by Inside Sports. A BCCI official while talking to Inside Sports said that Hardik Pandya is a world class player and it is great to have him back in the team with full fitness. Whether he will be made the vice-captain or not is up to the selectors. As an all-rounder, he understands both the situations. He has great leadership skills and we have seen that in the IPL. He will definitely do well. The BCCI official has also said that as an all-rounder it is important to manage your workload. We have a lot of T20 and ODI matches coming up and it will not be possible for an all-rounder to play in all three formats. Instead, he will focus on T20s and ODIs. “As far as Tests are concerned, we have Ravindra Jadeja and Shardul Thakur for the all-rounder slot and they have done well,” the official said. Once Deepak comes back from injury, his name will also be considered for the Test.
Hardik Pandya and Ashish Nehara
Hardik Pandya won the IPL title for Gujarat Titans under his captaincy
That is, before the Asia Cup 2022 or the T20 World Cup 2022, Hardik Pandya can become the vice-captain of Team India. This will also mean that when Rohit Sharma rests in ODIs and T20s, Hardik Pandya will become the first choice for captaincy. Hardik Pandya played a big role last year in helping his team Gujarat Titans win the IPL 2021 title for the first time. During that time his captaincy was also praised a lot. Not only this, the BCCI gave him the responsibility of captaincy for the first time on the tour of Ireland, while rewarding it, and in that too he lived up to the expectations. On the other hand, if we talk about KL Rahul, sometimes due to injury and sometimes due to Corona, he is not able to connect with Team India. In such a situation, if Hardik Pandya gets promoted soon, then there should be no big deal.
