India vs Australia 2017: Mitchell Johnson takes a dig at Virat Kohli

Last updated:

Australia’s fast bowler Mitchell Johnson wrote on Twitter that Ajinkya Rahane should stay as captain in Test cricket. After Ajinkya Rahane led India to victory in the fourth Test, former Aussie speedster congratulated India on their series victory and took a dig at Virat Kohli for his choice of words, on and off the field.

In a series of tweets, Johnson noted, “Congrats on the series win India. Well played. Well fought throughout series Aus. A great series to watch. Rahane should stay captain! It was a tough series but I believe it should stay on the field with the players.”

Former Australian captain Michael Clarke also heaped praises on Ajinkya Rahane’s captaincy.

“The way Rahane came out and captained the team has been a real stand out. He was very aggressive, he looked to bowl Australia out. He set positive, aggressive fields and I think his captaincy was brilliant, to be honest,” Clarke told India Today.
