According to him, he is a team man, and has contributed whenever the team has needed him to. The Indian vice-captain, who scored a match-winning hundred in Melbourne while leading the team, has struggled for form since. In the ongoing Test series against England, he has only one half-century to show for his efforts. Virat was and will always be the captain of the Test team: Ajinkya Rahane https://4-dot-cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/RieWZyotyW_drh-sevawcirc/virat-was-and-will-always-be-the-captain-of-the-test-team-ajinkya-rahane.html Opening up on the captaincy debate, Ajinkya Rahane has said that Virat Kohli is his captain and will remain so. Rahane was speaking after the growing chorus over him to replace Kohli as Test skipper in the wake of his brilliant leadership Down Under. The 32-year-old took over from Kohli after the Adelaide loss and guided India to a famous 2-1 series triumph over Australia. India next take on England at home in a four-match Test series, with Kohli back at the helm of affairs and Rahane resuming his vice-captaincy duties Ajinkya Rahane watched Sachin Tendulkar’s 1999 MCG ton multiple times before Boxing Day Test https://4-dot-cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/6EbHI45ZwE_drh-sevawcirc/ajinkya-rahane-watched-sachin-tendulkars-1999-mcg-ton-multiple-times-before-boxing-day-test.html Indian captain for the last three Tests in Australia, Ajinkya Rahane has revealed that he watched Sachin Tendulkar’s hundred at Melbourne in 1999 ten 10 times on the eve of last month’s Boxing Day Test. Even before the start of the match, Rahane had a look at the innings 6-7 times. The Indian captain ended scoring a memorable 112 as India won the MCG Test by eight wickets. The win was highly commendable coming in the wake of the embarrassing 36 all out in the first Test at Adelaide.
