After the conclusion of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, India will be hosting South Africa in a five-match T20I series. The team’s current skipper, Rohit Sharma has been rested for the series. However, Rohit will be making a comeback to lead the national team in the one-off Test in Birmingham starting on July 1. After Virat Kohli resigned as the skipper, Rohit was appointed as captain considering his success in the role for Mumbai Indians in IPL.

Talking about the same, Mohammed Siraj said, “Right now, we have some time before we play the Test against England so for now, I would be training at the ground near my house and working on my fitness, as jumping from T20 to Test is a big change. To bowl those long spells in Test cricket, I really need to focus on my consistency, and it will be my only goal.”
