The uncertainity over who will take over leadership of the Indian team if Rahul Dravid leaves the field has been answered for the moment with Sachin Tendulkar being appointed vice-captain for the two-Test series against Bangladesh.

"Tendulkar has been made the vice-captain," said Surendra Bhave, India's administrative manager.

India did not appoint a vice-captain for the one-day series against Bangladesh but Virender Sehwag took over when Dravid left the field for a brief while during the second ODI. The one-day squad did not include Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly or VVS Laxman and, with Sehwag dropped from the Test squad, the question cropped up once again.

Laxman had been appointed vice-captain for the Test series in South Africa in December 2006, after which Sachin Tendulkar took over the role for the home one-day series against West Indies and the World Cup in the Caribbean.
