Ajinkya Rahane re-appointed as captain of Rajasthan Royals

Vastavam web: Ajinkya Rahane was on Friday re-appointed captain of IPL side Rajasthan Royals following the departure of Australian Steve Smith.

Rahane returns to lead Royals for the game against Delhi Capitals on Saturday after Smith replaced him as captain in the middle of the season following the team’s disappointing run which saw it lose six out of their first eight games. Smith has returned home to join the Australian team ahead of the World Cup beginning May 30 in the UK.
