New Delhi: Team India’s vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane has been battling very bad form for a long time. Rahane is finding it very difficult to get runs off the bat, he had definitely scored a half-century in an innings of Lord’s Test, but he could not even reach that century. Rahane is also heavily criticized for his poor batting, but now he has given a befitting reply to his critics.
Rahane’s befitting reply to critics!
Ajinkya Rahane on Monday sarcastically said that those criticizing him for not being in form are making him feel important. He also said that he is not worried about scoring less runs. Rahane said in the virtual press conference, ‘I am very happy that people are talking about me. I have always believed that people talk about important people, so I am not too worried about it. It’s just a matter of contributing to the team.
Inspiration comes from these things- Rahane
Rahane said, ‘Everything inspires me. Playing for the country motivates me. I don’t get bothered by criticisms. People criticize only important people and they are criticizing me too. I’m just concentrating on control. The innings played at Lord’s was satisfactory for me. I believe in contributing. I only think about the team. I think contributing 61 or 62 is also important. It is satisfactory.
Rahane has been failing for a long time
Ajinkya Rahane has been doing a lot of flops for a long time and his bat is not able to do anything special. Rahane scored a century in the second Test against Australia in Melbourne. Since then Rahane has scored only two half-centuries in 16 Test innings. This is the reason why Rahane is constantly criticized.
