Ahmedabad: In the ongoing test series between India and England, Rohit Sharma has won everyone’s hearts with his stick. Despite the turning point of the Pink Ball Test, the “Hitman” made half a century.
On the other hand, the vice-captain of the Indian team, Ajinkya Rahane, did not always perform well. He scored 22, 4, 37 and 24 points in Australia after playing 112 and 27 steps at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

India won the 2–1 test round in Australia under Ajinkya Rahane’s captaincy. His captain’s title was also lauded throughout the series, but after returning to India he only scored 1, 0, 67, 10 points in the current test series against England.
Even though the Indian vice-captain came under criticism for his stick, former Indian team batsman and Rahane’s batting coach Pravin Amre said it was just as important to contribute to the victory. Amre said on Sunday: “It has not been easy to beat. You can see that few centuries have been marked.
He said: “The reduced number of centuries means it is not easy to beat.” We can say that the second century test was important. Especially when he teamed up with Rohit. You can also contribute to the success of the team. It’s not that you always have to score big to be successful.
Apart from Ajinkya Rahane and Ravichandran Ashwin, no other Indian has scored a century in the last 8 tests. Earlier, even after failing in the first test against England, Indian captain Virat Kohli also backed Rahane.
