Ajinkya Rahane: "Our aim would be to dominate Australia"

In a riposte to Australia captain Steve Smith's jibe that the visitors won't shy away from sledging, India batsman Ajinkya Rahane revealed that the hosts have designed plans for every single player.

"We don't know if they will sledge or not. We have some plans against each of them, I can't discuss that here. Skill wise or sledging wise, there is definitely a plan. We know that Australian players play mind games. Our aim would be to dominate them in every aspect," Rahane told reporters in Pune.
