The team will play four Test Border-Gavaskar series between India and Australia. The first Test of the series will be played in Adelaide from December 1, which will be a day-night test. After this game, Team India captain Virat Kohli will return home on paternity leave. In such a situation, Ajinkya Rahane can command the team in the remaining Test matches of the series. After Virat’s departure, some believe that Rahane will be under pressure from the captain, but Gavaskar does not believe it.
Gavaskar is of the opinion that Team India has won twice under Rahane’s captaincy, so there is no pressure from the captain on him. Rahane is the vice-captain of the Test team. Gavaskar said on Star Sports show ‘Khel Yojana’, “Rahane will not be put under any pressure as he has captained the team twice and the team has won both times. Under Rahane’s captaincy, Team India won against Australia in Dharamsala.
‘India will miss India the most in Test series’
Rahul has not thought much as a captain.
The former captain said, “I don’t think he thought about how to handle the captain. He will faithfully carry out his responsibilities as a batsman. Rahane will stay at the crease and put pressure on the opposing team and play some good shots. Gavaskar praised the team’s batsman Cheteshwar Pujara, saying, “There are 20 days in four Tests and I am happy to be 1 day.” Even though he hasn’t played cricket for a long time, I don’t think it makes any difference because he is mentally tough and likes batting. Pujara likes to spend time at the crease. In the last two years, he has improved his stroke.

‘Australia should pay attention to priests’
Former Australia opener Matthew Hayden also spoke about Pujara. “Australia need to focus on Pujara’s batting during his campaign as he plays well against Australia,” he said. We are in a generation where we admire players for their strike rate. Pujara is one of the few players in Test cricket who has a good strike rate and can overtake you.
