Ajinkya Rahane Rohit Sharma
The vice-captain of the Indian Test team, Ajinkya Rahane, has congratulated Rohit Sharma for a winning start to his captaincy career

Indian batsmen Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma are currently spending quality time with their families in England ahead of the upcoming five-match Test series against Joe Root-led side.

Rahane recently took to its official Instagram handle and shared an adorable picture in which he can be seen having fun with his wife Radhika Dhopavkar and their daughter, Aarya. The photo also featured Rohit Sharma and his family.

Captioning the post, the 33-year-old wrote, “Baby’s having their day out after quite some time indoors!”

Indian players are currently enjoying their three-week break from bio-bubble life after the conclusion of the World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand.

The Virat Kohli-led side failed to put up a good show in the all-important match at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton and lost another big ICC event. Kiwis defeated the Indian team by 8 wickets to become the new Test Champions.    

The WTC final loss was India’s fifth straight defeat in the ICC events since 2013.  

India will next lock horns with England in the forthcoming series, starting from August 4.

The last time Team India played a Test series in England against the hosts, they lost by 1-4. Apart from Virat Kohli, no other Indian batsmen had a memorable outing in 2018 as they failed to score heavily.

However, this time around, Kohli & Co. will be looking to produce a strong peformance against the English side.
