Says India’s win in Australia “changes nothing”; gives “complete credit” to his team-mates for the result

Edited PTI copy.

Ajinkya Rahane won many fans with his astute captaincy during India’s triumph in Australia but he has made it clear that the leader of the side remains Virat Kohli, for whom he is happy “filling in” when required.

Come February 5, Rahane will once again be India’s Test vice-captain, against England, with Kohli back in charge. Will things be different now, though? “Nothing changes. Virat was and will always be the captain of the Test team and I am his deputy. When he was absent, it was my duty to lead the side and my responsibility to give my best for Team India’s success,” Rahane told PTI, while on his way to Chennai for the England series.
