The 28-year-old has picked up a total of 113 Test, 113 ODI, and 67 T20I wickets in 27, 70, and 57 games respectively. The Board of Control for Cricket in India ( BCCI) rewarded Jaspirt Bumrah for his impeccable contribution by naming him the vice-captain. KL Rahul was ruled out of the Sri Lanka series due to injury.
Thus the management decided to make Bumrah the deputy on Rohit Sharma in both the Tests and T20Is. With Bumrah named as the vice-captain, there are chances that he can be considered as a potential captaincy contender after Rohit Sharma.
Bumrah was recently involved in a conversation with Ravichandran Ashwin on the latter’s ‘DRS With Ash’ episode on his YouTube channel where he spoke at lengths regarding the captaincy.
The seamer is not in the favor of chasing the leadership role. However, Jasprit admitted that he won’t shy away from accepting the captaincy or any role in the future given by the team management. The 28-year-old is absolutely ready to lead India in the future.
“I don’t like to chase things because I don’t want to… See I am a person who believes that God has a plan and everything will find out its own way, so I don’t like to hamper the plan that is there. I try to never change anything,”Jasprit Bumrah told Ravi Ashwin.
