Opener KL Rahul is all set to become Indian team’s vice-captain for the three-Test series against South Africa.

“KL Rahul is going to be Virat Kohli’s deputy for the three Test series,” a senior BCCI official confirmed.

“The All-India Senior selection committee has named KL Rahul as vice-captain for the upcoming 3-match Test series against South Africa. KL Rahul replaces Rohit Sharma as vice-captain, who was ruled out of the Test series owing to a hamstring injury,” BCCI said in a release.
