Opening up on the captaincy debate, Ajinkya Rahane has said that Virat Kohli is his captain and will remain so. Rahane was speaking after the growing chorus over him to replace Kohli as Test skipper in the wake of his brilliant leadership Down Under. The 32-year-old took over from Kohli after the Adelaide loss and guided India to a famous 2-1 series triumph over Australia. India next take on England at home in a four-match Test series, with Kohli back at the helm of affairs and Rahane resuming his vice-captaincy duties
