New Delhi: Indian Test team vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane on Monday took a sarcasm, saying 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. Apart from this, Rahane has also given a big statement about Pujara’s batting.
Rahane spoke on Pujara’s batting
Apart from Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara is also unable to score runs. While Rahane has an aggregate of 65 in four innings, Pujara has an aggregate of 70 in the current series. Rahane said on Pujara’s batting, ‘Pujara and I have been playing for a long time. We know how to handle pressure and situations. We are not worried for them. We are just focusing on the team. Whatever is not in our control, we are not thinking about that. From this statement of Rahane, it can be guessed that right now the card of a veteran batsman like Pujara will not be cut from Team India.
Critics also gave a befitting reply
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. He 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 am just focusing on control.
not scored a long century
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. Rahane said, ‘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.
