The form of Ajinkya Rahane, the backbone of the Indian midfield, has been the talk of the town as the Test series against South Africa progresses. Rahane was dismissed for just one run in the second innings on the third day of the third Test. He scored just 9 runs in the first innings and a total of 10 runs in Tests. Rahane’s form has been questioned by fans ahead of the Test series against South Africa. However, the team management was not ready to let go of the player. Rahane was given a chance in all three games. He made a comeback with a half-century in the second match but surrendered completely in the third Test. India lost Cheteshwar Pujara, who scored 9 early in the third day of the third Test. After this, it was hoped that Rahane, who reached the crease, would put up a good innings. If India had been able to keep up with the pressure, Rahane’s Test career would have benefited. However, with the player failing to see the double again, it will be difficult to return to the national team. Fans have been bidding farewell to Rahane on Twitter for his return. Fans thanked Rahane for his service to the Indian team. The hashtag thanking Rahane has gone viral. His average is less than 40 in 2020 and less than 20 in 2021. After 2019, the total achieved is only one century. Also Read: Fans have already posted a symbolic picture of Rahane on his shoulders and saying goodbye. Fans also want Shreyas Iyer to play in the Indian team. Rahane’s role will surely be given to Shreyas, who made his Test debut. Shreyas made his debut in the series against New Zealand with a century.
