India Test captain Rohit Sharma has tested positive for Covid-19 which could put him in doubt for the one-off Test against England at Edgbaston.
It is unclear who will lead India in case Rohit is unavailable for the England Test. KL Rahul was appointed vice-captain by the selectors
but he is not in England as he picked up a groin injury before the home T20I series against South Africa recently.
It could not be confirmed whether the selectors would look at Kohli as an interim captain for the one-off Test.
The one-off Test is the conclusion of the series from last year which was suspended after a Covid-19 outbreak in the India team.
A BCCI statement, concerning Rohit's Covid result, said: "Team India captain Mr Rohit Sharma has tested positive for COVID-19
He is currently in isolation at the team hotel and is under the care of the BCCI Medical Team.
