Amid COVID-19 pandemic, the cricketers have become quite active on social media platforms. They are busy giving answers to the curious questions posed by their fans. Earlier, many players conducted a question and answer round-up with their curious fans. Recently, Sreesanth also joined the bandwagon and gave some clear answers to his followers. He has also picked a player, who should lead Team India going into the future after Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.

It is well known that Kohli and Rohit are the two most important players for Team India at the moment. They are currently the most senior players in Men in Blue. At the moment, Virat Kohli is leading the national team across all the formats. On, the other hand, Rohit Sharma is sometimes used as a stand-in skipper in the absence of Kohli. In the meantime, he has also shown some glimpses of a fine captaincy while leading Mumbai Indians in the IPL with four title victories.

Who should lead Team India after Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma remains a tough question for many. Well, Sreesanth was asked about the same and he knows who can do that job perfectly.
