Previous Australian player and captain Ian Chappell stored acclaims on India's substitute captain Ajinkya Rahane for his extraordinary leadership in the second Test at MCG. India won the match by 8 wickets. Chappell hailed Rahane as a conceived pioneer who is equipped for being both smart and courageous.

Detailing his assessment on the leadership characteristics of Rahane, the 77-year-old said that he was not shocked considering Rahane's captaincy as he had made a comparative showing in a Test match against Australia at Dharamsala in 2017 without Virat Kohli. In that encounter, India had beaten Australia by eight wickets to wrap up the Test series 2-1.

Chappell said that it was not a surprise that Ajinkya Rahane captained India faultlessly at the MCG. He praised Rahane saying any individual who had seen him in control in Dharamsala in 2017 would have perceived a man destined to lead cricket teams.

Ajinkya Rahane has acquired the admiration of his teammates: Ian Chappell

Further, Chappell figured that Rahane has acquired the admiration of his partners by venturing up and scoring runs for India at important stages. Rahane had scored a sparkling century in the first innings of the game. It helped Team India post a very good total on the board. He has additionally decreed the Player of the Match award for his outstanding batsmanship.

The previous captain said that it was important for Rahane's prosperity as a captain. He said Rahane is bold and keen. Nonetheless, there was significantly more to Rahane’s initiative than simply those two significant characteristics. He was quite calm when things could easily go out of your hands.

As of now, the four-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy among India and Australia is at 1-1. India dominated the second game at MCG while Australia had secured the first game in Adelaide. Ian Chappell accepts that on the off chance that India holds the Border Gavaskar trophy, at that point Ajinkya Rahane will assume an indispensable job and will have more Player of the Match awards under his repertoire.
