Ian Chappell admires Ajinkya Rahane’s contentious attitude of captaincy

The former-Australian astounding batsman, Ian Chappel reckons that the Indian batsman, Ajinkya Rahane is a terrific skipper for the Indian team who will stand up and provide as captain in the absence of the present Indian skipper and the Run-machine, Virat Kohli in the final 3 Test games of a most-awaited 4-games series of Australia against India. 

The current Indian skipper, Virat Kohli will be leaving back for India following the very initial Test game in Adelaide. Without his presence, the Indian batsman, Ajinkya Rahane is apt to govern the Indian team in the following three-Test game.


He stated that he saw Ajinkya Rahane’s captaincy in a Test game against Australia in March 2017 that was being played at Dharamshala and he reckons that Rahane’s captaincy is outstanding. He said that Ajinkya Rahane was actually an aggressive skipper, he started in an interview.

He expressed that there were a few factors he could think of his captaincy. And the one he found most fabulous was in the very initial innings. The Australian opener, David Warmer was playing pretty well and was going behind the prime Indian bowlers by attacking them. Rahane fetched Kuldeep Yadav and he got what the team was looking for, David Warner’s dismissal. 

He said that The next element he recalls was the Indians chasing a short total and they had already given up a few wickets. The skipper, Ajinkya Rahane just entered the field and ambushed the Australian bowlers and achieved some 20 unusual by making 38 in just 27 balls. He loved the approach of Rahane. 

He stated that being a skipper, you acquire two alternatives, the first one is to be an aggressive one and the other one is to be a conservative one. And Ian Chappel feels that the aggressive approach in the test game is mandatory and Ajinkya Rahane is aggressive. 

The veteran feels that the Aussies may possess a bit of advantage. However, without Warner’s presence, Indians will have a slight benefit. 


He said that whatever that could have got on bad with an opening position has gone bad. Warner is ruled out and Joe Burns has been striving. And Pucovski following another blow, he doesn’t believe it would be favorable to play him both in terms of enthusiasm and medical term.

He thinks that the Aussies will select Joe Burns along with Marcus Harris for opening the innings for Australia

He believed that Cameron Green might be playing in Sydney, however, after his century in practices game and a few wickets he acquired, there may be talks of him playing in Adelaide against India.
