Who was the youngest test captain ?

Rashid Khan Arman, normally known as Rashid Khan, is an Afghan cricketer and the present vice-captain of the Afghanistan national team. He was one of the eleven cricketers to play in Afghanistan's first forever Test match, against India, in June 2018  

Rashid Khan aged  (20 years, 350 days) during the test match between Bangladesh and Afghanistan held at Chittagong. The team was captained by Rashid Khan in this match and with this he entered the record books. Rashid turned into the youngest test captain in cricket history. 

When Rashid Khan turned up for the toss, his recorded age was 20 years and 350 days. With this, he broke the 15-year-old record held by former Zimbabwe cricketer and captain  Tatenda Taibu. Notably, when Tatenda first captained his national side, his age was eight days more than Rashid Khan.
