Sri Lanka cricket stalwart Mahela Jayawardene feels that of late the trend is changing to see bowlers as potential captains of their sides, especially after fast bowler Pat Cummins was named skipper of the Australia Test side ahead of the Ashes series.

On Thursday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced pace bowler Jasprit Bumarh would lead the India team in the rescheduled first Test against England at Edgbaston beginning later on Friday, after regular skipper Rohit Sharma was ruled out due to Covid-19.
