Virat Kohli, Rahane
IND vs NZ: India clean sweep of T20 series against New Zealand. This work was done under the leadership of Rohit Sharma. But now the strength of Ajinkya Rahane and Virat Kohli’s captaincy is yet to be known. If they clean sweep the Test series against New Zealand, India will be ranked number one in Tests. If the Kanpur Test is in the hands of Ajinkya Rahane, the Mumbai Test is in the hands of Virat Kohli. If India wins both these Tests, they can become the number one team in the Tests.
The Indian team, captained by Ajinkya Rahane, will play its first Test at the Green Park Stadium in Kanpur from November 25. Currently, Team India is second in the Test rankings with 119 points. World Test Championship winner New Zealand currently tops the table with 126 points. If Team India wins the first match as part of a two-match Test series, the rankings will improve. If they win both the matches, the Indian team has a chance to once again stand in the first place.
Captain Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ishant Sharma, Mayank Agarwal and a few other players have been working hard at the Mumbai camp for the last 7 days for the first match of the Test series against New Zealand. Currently the entire Indian team has flown to Kanpur. Five members of the Test team also left for Kanpur after the conclusion of the T20 series in Kolkata. Rohit Sharma is not a member of the Indian Test team. Retired from this series.
