‘If there was someone else, I would have said that move was even more premature’: Butt as Vice Captain of India |  Cricket

KL Rahul from India has had an eventful past few months, to say the least. From exhibiting stellar form at IPL 2021 and finishing the 2021 T20 World Cup as India’s top race scorer to being named vice captain of the India-South Africa Test Series, the intrepid right-hander is enjoying a strong rise. And add to the list that Rahul became captain in the second test in Johannesburg in the absence of the unfit Virat Kohli. Numerous experts and commentators have commented on BCCI’s decision to give it additional responsibilities in such a short amount of time and the latest person to join the bandwagon is Salman Butt.

A viewer asked former Pakistan captain Butt, while speaking in a video on his Youtube, if the board rushed Rahul to the vice captain. In response, he joked:

“The thing is, India is looking at its current options, thinking about the long-term future and looking at the players who are performing well today and can captain the team in the future. So I think that only after seeing all of this, they have given you the role.

It’s more, [Virat] Kohli left the cue ball captaincy by choice. Therefore, he was not to be appointed vice captain. So with Rohit Sharma, it was always going to be KL Rahul. If it had been done to someone else, then you would have called that move even more premature. “
