Smith steps down as RR captain, Rahane to lead
Zubin Bharucha, Royals’ head of cricket, confirmed the news via a media release on Monday (March 26). Steven Smith, the Australian skipper, has stepped down as captain of Rajasthan Royals for the upcoming 2018 IPL season, in the wake of his statement to deliberate ball-tampering in the third Test played between Australia and South Africa in Newlands.
Ajinkya Rahane, the India batsman, will now take over the mantle of leading the side.
“Ajinkya Rahane has been an integral part of the Royals family for a long time now and he understands the culture and values of our team. We have absolutely no doubt that he will be a great leader of the Rajasthan Royals,” Bharucha noted.
