Ajinkya Rahane, who is currently leading the Rajasthan Royals in IPL might soon lead the Team India against the one off test match against Afghanistan. Team India’s regulars skipper Virat Kohli had opted to miss the test to play County Cricket to prepare for England series which gave the chance to Rahane lead the team.
The inaugural Test against Afghanistan will be held between 14th and 18th June. Indian selectors will pick as many as six squads tomorrow.
India A squad for England tour, India’s squad for three-match ODIs and three-match TwentyT20Is against England, squad for two Twenty20s against Ireland and India A team for tri-series against England A and West Indies A – and quite a few spots will be up for grabs.
While Kohli won’t be a part of Indian squad for Afghanistan Test, he will be in Ireland, where India will play 2 T20Is ahead of a gruelling England tour. India will be playing three ODIs, three Twenty20s and five Tests in England.
