“Bring Back Rahane As Test Captain,” Demands Twitter As India Loses 1st Test Against England

The India-England test series is quite important considering the fact that it will decide which team will face New Zealand in the finals of the ICC World Test Championship 2019-21. England has started quite well by winning the first test match of the series by 227 runs and this is Virat Kohli’s fourth straight loss as the skipper of the team.

Virat Kohli has been on the radar of the Indian Twitterati after India lost the first test match against Australia which was played at Adelaide. In that test match, India suffered a humiliating defeat by 8 wickets and in the second innings, the Indian team got out for just 36 which is its lowest total ever. However, the fortunes of the team changed after Ajinkya Rahane took the charge as Virat came to India on paternity leave.

In the remaining three test matches, India scripted history by winning the two test matches and getting one drawn. India won the four match test series against Australia by 2-1 and after that, many started demanding that Ajinkya Rahane should be made the permanent captain of the Indian test team while Virat Kohli should play as a batsman only. These demands got suppressed after Ajinkya Rahane made it clear that he is happy being the deputy of Virat Kohli and the latter will retain the post of captain.

However after the first test match defeat against England, many cricket fans have again raised their voices and demanded that Virat Kohli should be sacked from captaincy and Ajinkya Rahane should be appointed as the new skipper.

Virat’s captaincy is also targeted because he has been associated with Royal Challengers Bangalore since the inaugural edition of 2008 and since 2013, he has been leading the team but RCB hasn’t won an IPL trophy till date.

The first test match completely belonged to the England skipper Joe Root who scored a double century (218) in the first innings and 40 runs in the second innings. He was also adjudged as the player of the match for his superb performance.
