Australia vs India: "No Pressure" On Ajinkya Rahane As Captain In Virat Kohli's Absence, Says Sunil Gavaskar
Ajinkya Rahane will have the arduous task of leading the Indian cricket team in the final three Tests in Australia. Rahane will have big shoes to fill with Virat Kohli returning home after the end of the first Test in Adelaide, having been given a paternity leave by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
"So, I don't think the fact about being a captain or carrying on as captain is going to be part of his thinking at all. He will do the job as honestly as he plays his cricket, which means, as a batsman, he will go out there and try and let Pujara try and grind the opposition in and play few more shots maybe," he said.
