Ajinkya Rahane, who gave India a memorable Test series victory over the foreign ground in adverse circumstances, said he was successful as a captain due to the contribution of all the players. Rahane captained the team after a humiliating defeat in the Adelaide Test in three days, and regular captain Virat Kohli returned to India on paternity leave after the first Test of the series. Rahane and Kohli’s personality is different from each other, but calm Rahane leads the team brilliantly.
Asked about the leadership at a press conference after the match, he said it was an honor to lead the country. It’s not about me, it’s about the team. I am successful because everyone contributed. For us, it’s about showing emotion and fighting spirit on the field. Rahane’s calm demeanor helped the team recover from the embarrassing defeat at Adelaide. He was careful not to discuss too much about Adelaide. He returned to the side after a century in the Second Test at Melbourne. When asked repeatedly about difficult situations, he said we had to contend with the remaining resources.

It is really tough after the Adelaide Test but it shows passion and fighting spirit. We weren’t thinking much about the outcome. We wanted to play good cricket. This is credited to the entire team, including supporting members. Rahane will return to Kohli’s role in the upcoming home series against England next month but he still wants to enjoy the win.
Rahane, who has been feeling good since Rishabh Pant hit four, said, “We should all enjoy this victory, not just us but every Indian.” What we have done here is historic and we want to celebrate this victory tonight. After reaching India, England thinks of the series. Rahane boosted the confidence of young players who performed brilliantly at the crucial moment. Shubman Gill’s 91-run innings laid the foundation for India’s victory, scoring an unbeaten 89 and giving the team a historic victory.

“The way Gill has batted in the last three Tests has been amazing,” he said. He was really ready for this opportunity. He was calm under pressure and all saw what he could do today. The Indian skipper says we know about Washington Sundar’s bowling, but the way he batted with Shardul Thakur in the first innings of his first Test match here was really good. They’ve set the standard for themselves and I’m sure they’ll move on from here.
In Brisbane, Australia have not lost a Test in the last 32 years and when asked about chasing a target of 328, the team’s focus is on playing their natural game. He said that this morning we talked about playing natural cricket. What we did on this trip was very difficult. Yes, we wanted to play session by session. During tea, we messaged Rishabh, but he wanted to chase the target. Credit goes to him and Cheteshwar Pujara.
