KL Rahul next in line for being India’s skipper: Aakash Chopra
“I have hope that his captaincy will be good. Actually, we will get an idea of his captaincy, how he runs the game, what strategies he uses. If we see Kohli and Rohit Sharma, they are of the same age bracket and at one time you may feel that they are not captained material anymore,” Chopra said, replying to a fan’s question on his Facebook page.
