Virat Kohli is the vice captain. Not a good move.This guy is starting to do well, no need to give the extra burden as of now. Let him settle in the team, anyways he is being groomed to captain India in the future, but not so soon.

what exactly is the job of a vice captain? from what i understand, he is there to take on the captaincy if something happens to the captain.

It also means that he is being groomed for the captain's role in the future and slowly some responsibility is added.I dont know whats wrong with Gambhir being vice captain, he did good as a captain as well...Virat is 23, just starting to mature (less of MC, BC on the field), he needs to develop more as a player to get these duties...

Making Virat the vice-captain is a decent move - If & Only if - a) They want to sent a clear message to Gambhir, Raina - That they are dropped in rankings & need to do well to survive b) They are looking at someone talking over in the T20s in a year or so & for the World Cup in 2015... As Dhoni himself has not ruled skipping it ... Sehwag may not be there to make it & others also are not looking settled...

^ Well, it is a bit unfair on Gambhir as he hasn't performed that badly, he is the second highest run getter for India and 4th highest in the tournament, having played one match less than Kohli. He is the more mature of the two if it is a role of responsibility.

1 thing i wanted to highlight you is that in Yesterday's win Gambhir played a vital part... and we forgot him on our win...giving more space to Kohli...

Gambhir is the new Dravid. People forget to give him his due!
Please! Please don't compare each other. Dravid is a Legend.
