In the 2nd test against Australia, Ajinkya Rahane showed some impressive captaincy moves in the 1st session. After winning the toss Australia had decided to bat first but Rahane was all set to attack, taking the advantage of damp surface Rahane decided to back his spinners. In the first session of Day 1, India bowled out Australia for 195, following the bowler’s chart, Bumrah in the lead by 4 wickets for 16 runs, Ashwin took 3 wickets for 24 runs and debutant Mohammaed Siraj took 2 wickets for 15 runs.
This clearly proved that Ajinkya Rahane is a man of his own terms. He made some impressive moves with the field and bowlers which gave rise to the debate over Virat vs Rahane’s Captaincy. After the 1st-day netizens are praising Rahane’s captaincy and also trolling Virat’s absence.

King Kohli Appears Professional Captaining Team India. But, Ajinkya Rahane Looks Professional and More Importantly, SENSIBLE Captaining The Side. ROHIT Nahi Toh RAHANE Hi Sahi, Lekin KOHLI Nahi. #AUSvIND #BoxingDayTest pic.twitter.com/chV7qwMKiB
