Watch Jasprit Bumrah’s Remarks After Being Named Captain of the Test Match at Edgbaston Against England.
For the fifth Test match at Edgbaston, which has been postponed after the star opener was ruled out with Covid, regular skipper Rohit Sharma has been replaced by Jasprit Bumrah.
following his selection as the captain for the fifth make-up Test against England. Jasprit Bumrah was named the 36th Test captain of India for the match, which starts on Friday. Bumrah is the last fast bowler to be chosen as the captain of the Indian cricket Test team since Kapil Dev in 1987. The team’s normal captain, Rohit Sharma, did not recover from COVID-19 in time, and on Thursday, after his RAT tested positive once more, he was excluded from the Edgbaston Test. It would be intriguing to see how Bumrah approaches the pivotal fifth Test since he has never been the captain of his team in a First-class, List A, or Indian Premier League match.
It’s a great honor and a significant achievement. One of the highlights of my career was receiving the chance to play in a Test match. Which was something I had always wanted to do. I am thankful for this chance as a result. And Bumrah gave a news conference after being appointed, and BCCI tweeted a video of it on Friday.

Rohit is certainly a very important player, Bumrah continued. It is awful that this has happened and he is missing out, and we will surely miss him. When referring to Rohit Sharma, the regular captain.
India currently holds a 2-1 advantage in the five-match series but will now face a considerably improved and more powerful England team.
So after defeating the Test world champions New Zealand 3-0, England wins the series against India in 2021. Driven by the new leadership group that includes Brendon McCullum and red-ball coach Ben Stokes as the captain.
