Acting captain Ajinkya Rahane (Ajinkya Rahane), who helped India win the Test series on the basis of his best captaincy on the Australia tour, has won the hearts of all. After the victory over Australia with their weak team, the demand in Indian cricket has also started to rise. Rahane should hand over the command of the Test team and captain Virat Kohli should focus only on his batting so that he can be in the long term. So that we can play for India. But Rahane has made it clear that the captain of his team is Virat Kohli and he is happy to captain him only when needed.
India’s next stop is the 4 Test home series against England, which will start in Chennai from 5 February. In this series, Rahane will once again be seen as the vice-captain in the team. Now after the tour of Australia, once again, what will be different for him, assuming the vice-captaincy? When asked, Rahane said, ‘Nothing. Virat was and will remain the captain of the Test team. I am the vice-captain. I was given the captaincy if he was not there and my job was to give the best for the success of Team India.
Rahane said, ‘It is not only necessary to be the captain. How you play the role of a captain is more important. So far I have been successful and hope to be able to give good results in the future also.
Rahane’s captaincy record has been excellent. Under his captaincy, India has played 5 Test matches and of these, Team India has won 4 times. India has beaten Australia 3 times under Rahane’s captaincy, while one match has been a draw. Not only this, India has never had to face defeat under his captaincy.
Talking about his relationship with Kohli, he said, ‘I and Virat have always had a good rapport. He has praised my batting from time to time. We have played many memorable innings for the team in India and abroad. He lands at number four and I at number 5, so many of our partnerships have been formed.
Asked his opinion about Kohli as captain, this vice-captain said, ‘He is a very clever captain. He makes good decisions on the field. He relies heavily on my decision to bowl spinners. He believes that catching catches in the slip of Ashwin and Jadeja balls is one of my strengths.
