The former Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson is not stopping short from attacking the Indian cricket team’s captain Virat Kohli. After Australia lost the Dharamshala Test, Johnson took to Twitter saying that Ajinkya Rahane should stay the captain of the Indian side in place of Virat Kohli. He posted a tweet saying, “Rahane should stay captain! It was a tough series but I believe it should stay on the field with the players.”
Johnson’s tweet came in response to Virat Kohli’s post match comments where he stated that after the recent series, Australian players are no longer friends. “No, it has changed for sure. I thought that was the case but it has changed for sure. As I said in the heat of the battle, you want to be competitive but yeah I have been proven wrong. The thing I said before the first Test, I have certainly been proven wrong and you won’t hear me say that ever again,” Kohli said.

He added, “Regardless of whether we are on top or not, we speak if something pokes us we speak and give it right back. All people don’t digest it well but we take it very well and we give it back even better.” Johnson posted another tweet after this and said he is looking forward to being a part of the Mumbai Indians team in the Indian Premier League.
On the other hand, Australian captain Steve Smith apologised for his indifferent behaviour. “At times I have been in my own bubble and have let my emotions slip. I apologise for that,” Smith said at the end of the series, which India won 2-1 to reclaim the Border-Gavaskar trophy. It was a magnificent series. One of the best I have been a part of. Credit to India, they are a fantastic cricket side, particularly in their backyard. If you give them a sniff, they will take that,” the Australian skipper said.
