Ajinkiya Rahan, India’s deputy test captain, was one of the underperformers in the World Trials Championship final against New Zealand in Southampton. Although Ajinkia Rahani scored the highest goals with 49 in the first half, he failed in the second round. The right-handed batsman, who is only playing auditions now, took to his official Instagram handle and posted an encrypted message.
Ajinkya Rahane posted a photo on his official Instagram account in a Test T-shirt, stating that there is nothing more proud than wearing this T-shirt and representing India. The 33-year-old concluded by saying that he has enjoyed every moment so far. As one of the most experienced members of the team, Rahani has been an integral part of India’s success over these years.
While Ajinkya Rahane, like the rest of the Indian squad is now on vacation, he has a few grueling weeks ahead of him. India and England will meet in the five-match Test series, starting on August 4th at Trent Bridge in Nottingham. The veteran 74-Test was on his third Test Tour in England and is expected to play a key role in winning India’s first Test series on English soil since 2007.
The tourists are also likely to play a practice game before the Test series, which keeps them well placed to face England. While Ajinkya Rahane was incompatible with bats, he had an unforgettable few months. As Vice Captain, he led India to the famous Test series that Australia won earlier this year. However, he soon needs to show his relevance off the bat by producing some big roles. Rahana currently has 4,647 tests in 74 tests in 41.12, with 12 centuries.
