Gambhir previously said that Ajinkya Rahane is fortunate to lead the side in Virat Kohli’s absence. Rahane in response has said that there are no concerns over his form and he is totally focused on the Test match.

“I have no concerns about my form. My job is to think about how can I contribute to the team and contribution doesn’t mean you need to make 100 in every game. 30-40 runs or 50-60 runs in a crucial moment is a very important contribution. I always think about the team and never about myself that, ‘What lies ahead for me?’ or ‘What will happen in the future?’ I think I am very fortunate and grateful, it’s an honor for me to lead the country. So not too much bothered about what will happen. What’s there in the future will happen. My focus is to give my best in a particular moment and that’s what I am going to try” said Rahane in reply.
