Ajinkya Rahane is blessed with a “smart brain” and should discover a approach lead India well in the direction of Australia in the three Tests with his managed aggression, says iconic Sachin Tendulkar.
Rahane will take over the captaincy from Virat Kohli after the first Day/Night Test in Adelaide. Tendulkar, having watched Rahane captain India in the direction of Australia at Dharamsala, is hopeful of an excellent current from him.
“This is going to be slightly different. Having interacted with Ajinkya Rahane, I know he has a very smart brain and he is balanced,” Tendulkar instructed YouTube channel “Sports Today” on the eve of the first Test.
What Tendulkar likes is Rahane’s depth and preparedness sooner than any large sequence.
“He is aggressive but it’s controlled aggression. Whatever time I have spent with him, I know he is a hard-working player,” he acknowledged.
“He takes nothing for granted, and if you’re working hard, if you’re sincere and honest in your preparation, the result will invariably follow,” Tendulkar acknowledged all through an interaction on zoom.

For Tendulkar, it’s always the strategy that points and outcomes invariably observe.
“I am sure the team would prepare to the best of their ability. Don’t be focussed on the result. Focus on the process and the results will follow.”
On Wednesday, even skipper Virat Kohli acknowledged that he expects his deputy to do a “tremendous job” in his absence and observe the “template” set by the workforce.
