India’s fast bowler Ishant Sharma says that the caretaker captain Ajinkya Rahane is the captain of the bowlers and because of his calm nature and clear communication with the players, he will lead the good captaincy in the remaining three matches against Australia. Rahane will captain India in the remaining three Tests as regular captain Virat Kohli returns home on paternity leave.
Ishant, who is out of the tour of Australia due to injury on his arm, said, “He is very quiet and confident. I would definitely say that he is the captain of bowlers. He said, ‘Whenever we have played together and Virat is not on the field, he asks me what kind of field is needed. When do you want to bowl, etc. He said, ‘He never orders. He is well aware of what he needs from the team. ‘
India have won both Tests under Kohli’s captaincy against Australia and Afghanistan in Kohli’s absence. Ishant said, ‘You will come to know from his captaincy what a person he is. He is quite calm and stable. It is not that he is not funny. He has a lot of fun with us. He remains calm in moments of pressure. There is no tension with him and he communicates well with the bowlers.
Regarding Virat Kohli, he said, ‘If a partnership is being formed and there is nothing for the fielders to do then the energy of a player changes the whole scenario. Virat is the source of such energy. There is no match for his energy.
