After this match, the then captain of Team India, Virat Kohli returned to India. Actually, he was about to become a father, so he returned to India to spend time with his wife Anushka Sharma. After the departure of Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane took over the responsibility of captaincy. Captaincy was not easy for Ajinkya Rahane after trailing 0-1 in the series.
