- Virat Kohli’s captaincy is being questioned after the defeat against England
- Many questions are being raised about this and the reaction of people is also coming.
- When asked about this Ajinkya Rahane, he said directly – I will not give spice
In response to questions about his form (batting rhythm), the vice-captain of the Indian Test team Ajikya Rahane asked critics to check the record of his last 15 matches. Rahane has failed to play a big innings after scoring a century in the second Test match played in Melbourne on a tour of Australia and captain Virat Kohli also defended Rahane after losing the first Test match here against England by 227 runs.
Rahane said before the second Test of the four-match series against England, ‘We are playing (Test) on the home ground after almost two years. If you look at the score of the last home series, maybe there is something (big score) there. Rahane played innings of 59 and 115 runs in a match of that series against South Africa in 2019. He said, ‘It is about the performance of the team rather than any individual performance and my focus is on how I can contribute to the team. If you look at the figures of the last 10-15 Test matches, you might see some runs.

“I don’t pay attention to what is happening in the outside world,” said the vice-captain, who scored nearly 1000 runs in the last 15 Tests. Rahane looked like a stunted player at this press conference who was cleverly answering the question. He was asked whether the ‘body language’ (bhav-bhangima) of the players in the first Test did not look positive whether it was due to a change in captaincy. He said, ‘It happens when your energy in the game decreases slightly but it does not mean that it is due to a change in captaincy. I have said earlier that Virat is and will be our captain.

He said, ‘If you are digging and trying to extract some spice, then unfortunately you will not get it. There are many reasons for body language to be negative, it can happen due to the first two days of wickets in the first test. There can be many other reasons as well. ‘ When asked about the change in his batting in India after Cheteshwar Pujara’s very slow batting in Australia, Rahane said, “Nobody questions about his batting in the team.” It doesn’t matter what people say outside. ‘

He told, ‘The way he played in Australia and playing here is very important for us. He has played around 80 Test matches and he knows his game well, his ability cannot be questioned. He also defended Rohit Sharma against his Mumbai teammate, saying, ‘Rohit is an important member of our team and he is not able to score 100 -150 runs, but in Australia, he batted well and gave a significant sacrifice. Two (bad) innings do not make anyone a bad player. ‘
