India Touch The Record Of Seven Captains In A Year
Dhawan set a rare precedent by tossing for India as the seventh captain in a calendar year at 22 yards in Port of Spain. Earlier, Sri Lanka held the record of having the maximum of 7 different captains in a calendar year. Now India touched on that precedent.
Incidentally, in 2017, Sri Lanka became the first team to set this rare precedent. Indian team touched this rare precedent in 2022. Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Rishabh Pant, and Hardik Pandya have previously led India in the current calendar year. Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, Upul Tharanga, Rangana Herath, Lasith Malinga, Chamara Kapugedera and Thisara Perera led Sri Lanka in 2017.
KL Rahul led the Indian team for the first time in Tests after missing the big squad in Johannesburg due to a back injury. Rohit Sharma led India in ODIs on that tour. Rishabh Pant led India against South Africa at home in the T20 series. Hardik Pandya led India in the T20I series against Ireland. Jasprit Bumrah led India in the fifth and ‘one off’ Test at Edgbaston. After that, Shikhar Dhawan is leading India in ODIs on the Caribbean tour. Also, Zimbabwe in 2001, England in 2011, and Australia in 2021 have used multiple captains in a calendar year. However, these three teams used six different captains.
