Ajinkya Rahane, India’s top-order batsman in red-ball cricket, has broken his silence following criticism of his performance in the longest format of the game.

In an edition of ‘Backstage with Boria’ with Mr. Boria Majumdar, Ajinkya Rahane discusses his failure in Test cricket, as his bad form persists and the top-order batsman struggles to find a new game plan to improve his consistent scoring opportunities.

Recalling the Test series in Australia, when Ajinkya Rahane was captaining India in the worst possible scenario, and the team’s remarkable comeback stunned the globe. People who have complete knowledge of the sport of cricket will never say ridiculous about Rahane’s exclusion from the Test squad, according to Ajinkya Rahane who reflected on his fantastic captaincy in Australia.

“People who generally know the sport, they’ll not talk like that,” says Ajinkya Rahane on silly remarks by fellow fans.

People have mocked Ajinkya Rahane’s poor Test cricket performance and are considering forcing the removal of Ajinkya Rahane. Although Ajinkya Rahane was unable to make an impact in the South Africa series, the veteran Test batsman’s contribution was invaluable.

Rahane will play for Mumbai in the forthcoming Ranji Trophy, which will be captained by teenager Prithvi Shaw, and fans may be looking for a strong comeback from Ajinkya Rahane by wishing for a successful season in the Ranji Trophy.
