India's bowling coach Bharat Arun has outlined that Ajinkya Rahane might look calm and composed, but he is someone with a steely nerve. India's tour of Australia is something that will always be remembered by fans all around the world. The Indian cricket team were on the losing end after the first Test match in Adelaide. The side was also without the services of their captain Virat Kohli after the first match. Despite that, the Men in Blue bounced back in style as they won the next game in Melbourne. Following that, they defeated Australia in Brisbane to win the Border Gavaskar series.

India's stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane is being praised after leading the side to victory in Australia's Test series. Arun explained why Ajinkya Rahane's captaincy worked Down Under. He stated that Ajinkya Rahane backs his players unconditionally. Rahane made some smart bowling changes while being attacking with the field placements. The skipper also had to work with many youngsters and was successful in bringing the best out of the players.

Virat Kohli's energy is sometimes mistaken for anger: Bharat Arun

India bowling coach lauded the captaincy of Rahane during the series as he said that he always backs the players even if the bowler goes wrong. The batman has such calmness in him that bowlers are not terrified when they fail to implement a plan under him. On the other hand, Virat Kohli's energy is misunderstood for anger.

Virat Kohli will be leading the side once again for the home Test series against England. Ajinkya Rahane will get back into his role as India's vice-captain. The 32-year-old recently avoided rumours of him leading the Indian Test team against England. Both India and England will play the first two Tests in Chennai before flying to Ahmedabad for the remaining Test and T20I games.

Members of the England cricket team, including captain Joe Root, arrived in Chennai on Wednesday to play in the Test series against India. Few Indian players and members of the support staff have also reached Chennai. Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane arrived on Tuesday night, while Cheteshwar Pujara, Jasprit Bumrah and Rishabh Pant arrived on Wednesday morning. Chennai last hosted a Test match against England in December 2016.
