Former Indian cricketer upset on Rahane, said- I will not give him a single chance, he needs to play first class cricket
Indian Test team's middle-order batsman Ajinkya Rahane disappointed every time, barring a couple of times, in the three-match Test series against South Africa. In the second innings of the Cape Town Test match, when the team needed a run, he was dismissed after scoring a run. Rahane is being criticized a lot for his poor batting. Now former Indian batsman Sanjay Manjrekar also expressed his reaction regarding him. He clearly said that he would not like to give a chance to Ajinkya Rahane in a single innings now as he is failing to score runs continuously.
Talking about Ajinkya Rahane, Sanjay Manjrekar said on ESPN Cricinfo that Ajinkya Rahane's form is very bad and bowlers are also bowling him good deliveries. Obviously when he is in poor form, the bowlers are not having to work very hard to get him out. The truth is that he needs to go and play first class cricket now. Looking at the way he has been performing for the last 3-4 years, it doesn't look like he is making a comeback in the form. He scored a century in the Melbourne Test match on the Australia tour and there was hope that he would do well in the future, but it did not happen. His poor performance continued in South Africa as well.
Let us tell you that on the South Africa tour, Rahane has scored 136 runs in six innings of the three-match Test series at an average of 22.67. This is the fifth time since the year 2020 that his average has been below 25 during a Test series. He is not able to score runs even after being given continuous opportunities.
