The vice-captain of the current Indian Test team, Ajinkya Rahane has been a brilliant second-choice to the Indian captaincy role. The Indian middle-order batsman has been a top-notch skipper whenever he gets to lead the team. His calm and composed mind and ‘going with guts’ decision making adds much value to his leadership skill.
Here’s the captaincy record of Ajinkya Rahane in all three formats:
- Rahane debuted as a Test captain against Australia in 2017 in Dharamsala in Virat Kohli’s absence.
- He also captained the historic Test match in Bengaluru in 2018, which is the first-ever Test match for Afghanistan after achieving the Test status.
- He has won all three ODI games while playing as captain and won 1 out of 2 T20I games for Team India as a skipper.
- The Maharashtra based cricketer is the 33rd cricketer to captain India in Tests, 22nd in ODI, & 4th in T20 Internationals.
