Rahane, who led the Indian team in the last three Tests of the Australia tour, will be resuming his duty as the deputy skipper of the team while captain Virat Kohli, who was on paternity leave, makes a comeback. Team India players started arriving in Chennai on Wednesday as evident from Mohammed Siraj and Cheteshwar Pujara posting their whereabouts on social media.

Rahane led India to a historic series win Down Under as the visitors registered a historic win in Brisbane to take the Border-Gavaskar series 2-1. It was only the second time that India had won a Test series on Australian soil, the previous instance being their last tour Down Under in 2018-19.
