Nothing Has Changed Between Me And Virat, He Is Still My Captain Says Ajinkya Rahane

New Delhi:
 Ajinkya Rahane, who won hearts with his captaincy in a historic Test series win in Australia, has made it clear that his team is captained by Virat Kohli and is happy to be captained when needed. Rahane will be the vice-captain again in the Test series against England starting on February 5. Now, when asked what will be different for him when he takes over the vice-captaincy again after the tour of Australia, Rahane said, 'Nothing. Virat was and will be the captain in the Test team. I am the Vice Captain. Since he was not, I was given the captaincy and my job was to do my best for the success of Team India.

"It's not just important to be a captain," he said. How you play the role of captain is more important. So far I have been successful and hopefully I can continue to do well. ' India have won four of the five Tests under Rahane's captaincy. About his relationship with Kohli, he said, "My and Virat's rapport has always been good. He has praised my batting from time to time. We have played many memorable innings for the team in India and abroad. He's down to number four and I'm down to number five, so we've had a lot of partnerships. '

"We have always respected each other's game," Rahane said. We talk about opposing bowlers when we are at the crease. When either of us plays a bad shot, we warn each other. He makes a good decision on the field. He has a lot of faith in my decision to have the spinners bowl. "It's one of my strengths to catch Ashwin and Jadeja in the slips," he said.

"Virat has a lot of expectations from me and I try to live up to them," he said. Asked if his place in the Test team now looks more secure after seeing many ups and downs in his career, he said, "Honestly, I never felt that my place was in danger. The captain and the team management have always trusted me. ' "Sometimes in some series a player stays in bad form, but that doesn't mean his 'class' is gone," he said. All a player needs is a good innings to get back in form. '
