Former Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson is known to have a fast bowler fear factor working for him even away from the playing pitch. During the Border-Gavaskar trophy he tried to get in the mind of the Indian captain Virat Kohli but failed. Recently, after India regained the trophy, Johnson was at it again.
In a recent tweet he has said that Ajinkya Rahane should continue as captain. Now, come on grow up Mitch, these are old tricks, does not work with these high-quality professionals. This is a statement that comes right after Virat Kohli’s press conference.

Here is the tweet:
Rahane should stay captain! It was a tough series but I believe it should stay on the field with the players https://t.co/jtM7V9eIAm

As a normal human being would you like others intervention in your home issues, of course no. But, it seems these Australians are in a habit of doing so. This is a bad habit Mr. Johnson, it would be so much better if you could try to make Steven Smith a good sportsman before you pelt stones into others house.
This is actually not out of the blue. If you remember, Virat Kohli had smashed Johnson to all parts in Australia, so to have this bitter thing still stinging him is possible. That is exactly what it seems he is trying to do.
He would be there in India for the Indian Premier League and will be representing the Mumbai Indians franchisee. He was picked for Rs. 2 cr.
