Indian veteran Ajinkya Rahane’s comeback to team India has been superbly phenomenal as he has made a big mark in the team since his return to the team in the World Test Championship Final against Australia. Rahane was the impressive batter for the team in the WTC final against Australia where Rahane had scored (89) runs in the first innings while his second innings comprised of (46) runs.
Earlier, Rahane had been on the sidelines due to his poor form but his performance in the domestic circuit and subsequently in the Indian Premier League (IPL), where he came up with tremendous performances, earned him India call. Currently, Team India are touring West India where Ajinkya Rahane was appointed as vice-captain of the team. So, it has been incredibly fruitful for Rahane. Team India are now scheduled to tour South Africa later this year and Indian batting coach Vikram Rathour has made huge remarks about Rahane by saying that India will need somebody like Rahane in South African conditions.
“He (Rahane) played really well in the WTC final. He has always been a good player, who has scored enough runs for team India. He was dropped because of bad form. When it comes to technique, you constantly work on that but what stood out for me that he was much more calm in his approach,” Said Rathour while interacting with media.
“He was playing late and close to the body. That has been the standout thing since his comeback. He is still batting the same way in the nets. We hope he will do well. Conditions in South Africa, you will need somebody like him to come good,” said Rathour.
