When the Indian selection for the World Test Championship was released, Ajinkya Rahane’s inclusion made cricket fans pleased. The veteran athlete, a veteran of many wars, returned to the Indian team after nearly 18 months away. The 34-year-old, who led Mumbai throughout the domestic season, hit nearly 700 runs, but it was his attacking game in the IPL that stood out. Rahane’s return was examined by a former India player, who described how it may be a positive match for him.
“He (Rahane) was under enormous pressure the last time he played for India.” It’s a difficult time for a batsman to step up to the plate, knowing that this may be his final innings in a Test match. That is a difficult situation to be in. “I don’t think he’ll be in that position now because he’s seen life after Test cricket, almost like a retired cricketer,” Sanjay Manjrekar told Star Sports.
“Now that he has the opportunity, I believe his mind will be much freer.” People may believe that his IPL form influenced his selection and recovery. But he also had a successful first-class season. As a result, we may gain from this. I’ve been there before. I was released from the Indian team. I scored a lot of runs in first-class cricket, but when it comes to Test cricket, it’s a completely different ball game. So, Ajinkya Rahane will have more freedom, but he will also have more work to do. Test cricket is a different ball game, and he is up against a top-tier opponent. I have no idea how he will bat. There are some signs that he is returning to form, but it is a whole different circumstance.”
On Wednesday, the WTC final will take place at The Oval.
