The year 2020 was not very special for Team India captain Virat Kohli. In this whole, Virat Kohli’s bat did not yield a single international century in all three formats. While Team India lost the Test series in New Zealand under his captaincy, the team suffered an embarrassing eight-wicket defeat in the first match of the four-Test series played in Adelaide in Australia.
In the second innings of Adelaide, Team India could score just 36 runs, which is also their lowest score in Test cricket. After this Virat returned to Paternity Leave and under the captaincy of Ajinkya Rahane, Team India made a tremendous return to Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), won the match by eight wickets and got the series 1–1.
In limited overs cricket, Virat’s captaincy has been compared to Rohit Sharma and Master Sachin Tendulkar has put his point on comparing Rahane in Test cricket to Rahane and Virat’s captaincy in Test cricket.
Sachin said this
Tendulkar said in an interview, ‘People should not enter into comparisons with Virat. Ajinkya has a different personality, his intention was aggressive. I would like to remind people that both are Indians and play for India, then no person should be placed above India. The team and the country are above everyone. ‘
In Australia, India lost the three-match one-day international series by 1-2, and then returned to the T20 International series and won the series 2–1. Virat Kohli has returned home on Paternity Leave after the Adelaide Test.
The Test series is currently 1–1. The third Test match of the series is to be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground from 7 January, for which Rohit Sharma has also joined Team India. The return of Rohit will strengthen Team India’s batting. Whatever he said, Sachin said keeping his faith at the forefront.
