Pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah has said that if the opportunity arises, he is ready to take up the responsibility of leading India. The fast bowler has been promoted to the vice-captaincy for the three-match ODI series in South Africa that begins on Wednesday. KL Rahul is the stand-in captain for the series, as designated captain Rohit Sharma remains unavailable due to a hamstring injury. After Virat Kohli gave up his Test captaincy at the end of the South Africa series, conjecture is rife over who his successor will be.
