India vs England: Virat Kohli Says Rishabh Pant Will Start In First Test

Virat Kohli said that the equation between himself and vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane, who led India to a historic series win in Australia, was based on trust and mutual respect. Addressing the press through an online briefing, Kohli, who is returning as Team India skipper, said on the eve of the first Test against England, "Things are very different from outside compared to what happens inside the dressing room. Not just between me and him (Rahane) but the whole team, camaraderie is based on trust. It was amazing to see how he led the team to win in Australia. It's the mutual respect, bonding, on and off the field. The partnership will remain the same as ever."
