Former India head coach Ravi Shastri explains why Jasprit Bumrah can not be made India's captain

Shoaib Akhtar had recently said in one of his interviews that he would want India to look at Jasprit Bumrah as a long term captain but Ravi Shastri has a contrary view.

During a chat with Akhtar, the former India head coach said that In India it's going to be difficult for a fast bowler to captain. 'A fast bowler captain has to be an all-rounder basically or he has to be a Bob Willis kind of a captain who in conditions where they play, will always be in the game and will be aggressive. He'll be looking to win games and take wickets. Very rarely has a fast bowler been there for too long. Unless he is a genuine all-rounder like Kapil, Imran or Sir Garfield,' added Shastri.

After Virat Kohli stepped down as the Test skipper, Bumrah had said that he would be honoured to lead India if given a chance.
