‘There are four-five players that can lead India in Tests’ says Brett Lee;
Former Australia pacer Brett Lee has said that there are four-five players in the current Indian setup that can potentially lead the senior Test side.
Brett Lee’s remarks come just two weeks after Virat Kohli resigned as India’s Test captain. Kohli stepped down as T20I captain last year and was then ousted as ODI captain because the selectors only wanted one white-ball leader.
“It is totally Virat Kohli’s call. I have been focused on the Big Bash League back home and obviously, the Ashes. Cannot say much about it, it is totally up to Virat Kohli. Think there are four-five players who can lead India in Tests right only, only time will tell,” Lee told ANI on the sidelines of Legends League Cricket here in Oman.
“It is totally up to the Indian management, there are four-five players who can do the job,” he added.
Under the leadership of Pat Cummins, Australia trounced England 4-0 in the recently ended Ashes series.
When asked about Cummins’ captaincy, Lee said:
“Pat Cummins has done very well as a captain. He has proved that fast-bowlers can be captain. I am very happy for him.”
