Ricky Ponting, Shehbag spoke highly of Rahane's captaincy


Bangla Hunt Desk: India captain Virat Kohli has returned to the country on paternity leave after playing the first match of the four-match Test series between India and Australia. Ajinkya Rahane is the captain of the Indian cricket team in the second match, the Boxing Day Test. Team India seems to be turning around under Rahane's captaincy.

Team India did a great job in the cold brain of the patient Rahane. Watching Team India play on this day, it seemed that every cricketer has learned to fulfill his responsibilities properly. Jaspreet Bumrah, the team's leading bowler under Rahane's captaincy, is teaching debutant Mohammad Siraj how to bowl on this pitch. On the other hand, Ravichandran Ashwin is bringing success to the team by bowling according to the fielding as advised by the captain. And it is Rahane's captaincy that has earned former cricketers praise.

Fascinated by Rahane's captaincy, former Aussie captain Ricky Ponting said: “After the unfortunate loss in Sydney, there were doubts as to whether Team India would be able to come back. But the way the Indian team, led by Ajinkya Rahane, turned out, was really surprising. The Indian bowlers must appreciate Rahane's captaincy in the way he bowled, from the fielding to the captain's advice to the panning. “

Similarly, former India opener Virender Sehwag praised Rahane. Sehwag said: “Rahane has made great bowling changes and fielding. Bumrah, Ashwin, Siraj are great. Stuck Australia by 195 runs. Now it is the job of the batsmen. We have to take big leave. ”
