The Indian cricket team, led by Virat Kohli, is all set for the second Test against England. The second Test between the two teams will start tomorrow in Chennai. After the first Test, Indian vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane answered a number of questions at an online press conference.
Ajinkya said the body language of the Indian players in the first Test was not right. You can’t get on the field with the same kind of energy every time. In the first Test against England, the Indian players showed less energy. This did not happen as Virat Kohli returned to lead the team. Virat Kohli is our captain and will remain so. You will not get any masala.
India had lost the first Test against England by 227 runs. After that, Virat Kohli’s leadership and team selection were criticized. India had a target of 420 for victory, but they managed to score 192 runs. Virat scored a half-century in the second innings. But the other batsmen failed. After the defeat, many started talking about changing the captain of the Test team once again. This is the fourth consecutive defeat of the Indian team under Virat’s leadership. Last year, India lost two Tests to New Zealand, followed by Australia in the first Test and now in the first Test against England.
