New Delhi: Team India was performing brilliantly in the first test against England. The morale of the team was sky high after bowling out the English team for 183 runs on the first day of the game, but on the second day of the match everything was reversed. Team India, playing without any wicket at 97, lost 4 wickets for 112 runs. However, after this the game could not proceed due to bad light and rain. But the way the senior players of Team India kept going to the pavilion one after the other, the fans got furious and got angry on social media.
Rahane’s ‘Flop’ show
After the dismissal of Pujara (Cheteshwar Pujara) and Virat Kohli, the fans were hoping that Ajinkya Rahane would take over the responsibility of the team but it did not happen. The vice-captain of India’s Test team returned to the pavilion after scoring 5 runs in 5 balls. Earlier, he had been run out once, in such a situation, the anger of the fans is coming out fiercely due to the kind of game Rahane showed in such a situation of the team.
People got angry on Rahane
Team India did not give Ashwin a place in the playing XI in the first Test, in such a situation, fans say that if a senior player running in good form can be dropped from the Test, then why not vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane?. Apart from this, the fans are talking about giving a chance to Suryakumar in place of Rahane and are fiercely criticizing Rahane’s poor performance against England.
If Ashwin can be dropped from time even after some good performances, why is that rule not applicable to Pujara and Rahane?
Both have been below average since 2018

I can see people here bashing Kohli & Rahane left-right-centre but not saying a single word against Pujara
Such fake people these!#ENGvIND

Absolutely senseless running between the wickets by Rahane after surviving a run out chance earlier.

Rahane and useless runouts.
A story better than a great tragedy movie
