One-Off Test: No Room For Complacency In Cricket, Says Ajinkya Rahane

 

Stand-in India skipper Ajinkya Rahane has made it clear that the number one Test unit in the world will not take debutants Afghanistan lightly when the two teams lock horns in the one-off Test that starts on Thursday in Bengaluru. In a historic event, the Asghar Stanikzai-led team will play their maiden five-day game against the best team in the longest format of the game. But Rahane, who is standing in as captain in the absence of Virat Kohli, said that there is no room for complacency in cricket and the hosts will be at their ruthless best. "We are not going to take Afghanistan lightly. They have a decent team... bowlers are good," he said on the eve of the one-off Test.
