With the BCCI and ICC involved in a tussle over the newly-implemented revenue model that is set to cost India a major chunk of the revenue they used to earn under the ‘Big Three’ model, speculations are rife over India’s participation in the ICC Champions Trophy.

The BCCI has already crossed the April 25 deadline to announce the squad for the tournament and nothing has been finalised yet on Team India’s participation in the showpiece event.

Recent media reports have suggested that the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators are against boycotting the tournament but at the same time, they are also not willing to bow down in front of the ICC. In such a scenario, it is very much likely that the BCCI might send a second string side. Moreover, the fact that all of India’s matches are already sold out at the tournament, it may prompt the officials to send a team consisting of second string players. And if that happens, then the likes of Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma are highly unlikely to be a part of the squad and thus the management would have to look for a new captain.

As of now, nothing is clear yet but here are 5 players who can lead the team in the absence of the regular skipper and other big names:

The Karnataka batsman, who had grabbed the headlines after becoming only the second Indian player to score a triple century in Tests, has played just a couple of One-Day Internationals so far but he can be a contender to lead the side in the absence of big names.

A proven performer in the domestic circuit, the right-handed batsman is also leading Delhi Daredevils in the ongoing IPL in the absence of Zaheer Khan and recently led the capital-based outfit to an impressive victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
