Even though Rohit Sharma has been appointed India’s new limited-overs captain, he has been forced to miss the team’s trip to South Africa due to an injury. As a result, although KL Rahul will captain India in the one-day international series. Jasprit Bumrah will serve as his deputy. While speaking at a virtual press conference, the pacer expressed his gratitude for being considered worthy of serving as the country’s leader.

Jasprit Bumrah did, however, add that it is not something he is actively pursuing. Bumrah has also said that whether or not he has a leadership position does not affect him in the least.

“As for myself, am prepared to help in any capacity and manner I am able. If you are offered the chance to captain India, you will seriously consider it. It is not something I like pursuing; instead, I prefer to focus on my work. Nonetheless, I am capable of doing the required tasks. It does not matter whether I write a post or not. That has always been my thought process and what I want to do. If given the chance, there is no greater honour than this, but I do my best to concentrate on how I can make a positive contribution. For me, the nature of my position remains unchanged. I have to perform my job, and I will be there to support KL Rahul anytime he needs assistance,” Jasprit Bumrah said.

Unless there is a sense of duty and pressure, you will not enjoy the game: Jasprit Bumrah

The Indian fast bowler then went on to discuss his responsibilities as vice-captain of the team. He said that he makes every effort to manage his responsibilities and to contribute to the team’s cause as much as possible. The 28-year-old went on to explain how he attempts to assist teenagers as well.

“You are constantly looking for the opportunity to take the lead. The game would be unenjoyable if there was no sense of duty or deadlines. I make an effort to handle my responsibilities and make a positive contribution to the cause of the other side. Am a quick learner. When I first joined the team, I was always asking questions. I strive to be of assistance to the children and to dispel their concerns. Now and again, I find myself learning from them,” Jasprit Bumrah remarked.

The first of a three-match One-Day International series between the two countries will take place on January 19. The previous time India travelled to South Africa for a one-day series, they came away with a 5-1 victory. It should be mentioned, though, that if the men in blue are to win the 50-over series in the Rainbow Kingdom this time around, they will have to be at their absolute peak performance levels.
