Mumbai: With Virat Kohli relinquishing the India Test captaincy, a million-dollar question is doing the rounds about who could be his long-term successor.
The favourite to replace Kohli is Rohit Sharma, but he is already 34.
“If given an opportunity, it will be an honour and I don’t see any player (who) would say no and I am no different,” Bumrah was quoted as saying by news agency PTI. Bumrah was KL Rahul’s deputy in the ODI series in South Africa.
“Be it any leadership group, I always look to contribute however I can, to the best of my abilities,” Bumrah added.
According to Bumrah, shouldering responsibility and helping teammates comes naturally to him.
“I look at this situation in the same manner…taking responsibility and talking to players and helping them out has always been my approach and it will always be my approach going further keeping any situation in mind,” he said.
